Matilda lives with her loving owners — The Bearded Man, The Lady, and Dog.
She was born on Valentine’s Day in 2013 in a small town, and was quickly picked up by a rescue society. When she found her forever home she was only 12 weeks old.
As she grew older and bigger everything seemed normal, except for her having one squinty eye from time to time which earned her the nickname of Quasimodo, which stuck for a while. Shortly after her first birthday, her right pupil became enlarged and stayed that way for several minutes. The Lady rushed her to the vet. The specialist came with her many sophisticated instruments and tests, and confirmed that Matilda displayed signs of spontaneous lens luxation.
So now came the question of what to do. Unfortunately, there was no simple answer. The lenses in her right eye had spontaneously detached, and nobody really knew what would happen next. After much discussion and consideration, The Lady and The Bearded Man decided with the veterinary ophthamologist’s support that we would let Matilda’s eyes do what they naturally would, and would not intervene with a traumatic surgery that did not appear to be helpful.
Since then, Matilda’s eyes have changed and evolved constantly. When the left eye followed the right and the lens luxated, she became withdrawn and sad for a couple of days and her owners were extremely worried. They used the eyedrops that the veterinary ophthalmologist had prescribed to reduce pressure and pain, which Matilda hated, but they kept at it.
Matilda’s owners take her to see a vet regularly and to see the ophthalmologist when necessary. She is always up to date on her checkups and shots, and they watch her very closely to notice any changes in behaviour that might suggest that she’s uncomfortable. No matter what happens, these people think she’s perfect and beautiful and will love and care for her the absolute best way that they can for however long this little alien is here.
