This is Dora and her brother Felix. The two adorable kittens were once strays in New South Wales, Australia until a loving couple rescued them and gave them a home. However, the couple found something unusual about the kittens’ appearance.
Dora and Felix were examined at RSPCA’s Blue Mountains shelter, where it all became clear: the kittens were born without eyelids. “Without corrective surgery, the kittens were likely to go blind within a year,” Patrick Jones of RSPCA NSW wrote on his blog. “Thanks to the amazing vets from the Eye Clinic for Animals (in Sydney), the surgery that Felix and Dora so desperately needed was made possible.” Fortunately, the kittens’ surgeries were successful, and they have been healthy and kickin’ since then. Let’s wish the two a wonderful life ahead.
