No one knows how Felix and Dora ended up wandering along the side of a road in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales, Australia. But luckily for them, they were found when they were just five weeks old.

A kind-hearted couple took the kittens in and took care of them, making sure they were in good health. As they were giving them their health checks, they realised that there was something strange about the kittens’ eyes.

They went to their local RSPCA centre, where vets confirmed that Felix and Dora had been born without eyelids.

Had they not have been brought in in time, they likely would have gone blind within a year.

Patrick Jones, who takes pictures of the animals at the RSPCA centre who took the cats in, told ”Without the protection offered by eyelids, their corneas would have become irreparably scarred.’

Thankfully vets at the Eye Clinic for animals were able to step in. They saved the kitten’s eyesight by creating eyelids with tissue from their lips, providing the protection the cats’ eyes desperately needed.

After a little recovery time, Felix and Dora are now happy and in great health.Felix and Dora are now staying at the RSPCA Blue Mountains Shelter. They’re searching for a forever home (hopefully together), and are ready to be adopted now.

    Please don't separate them. They need to stay together.
