A cat with huge bulging eyes has taken the internet by storm thanks to his unique appearance.

After being adopted by Ashley Norlien, 21, two years ago, the owner couldn’t help but snap and upload photographs of her new pet.

However, as his social media presence started to climb, Ashley noticed that Potato, now five, was getting more and more mentions about his ‘different’ eyes.

Now, two-years later, Potato has amassed over 50,000 followers thanks to her unique look.

But despite so many people marvelling over the feline’s eyes, Ashley admits that she does not have a real explanation for why Potato looks the way he does.

Ashley said: “Potato has been with me for about two years now.

“As soon as I got him, I started uploading pictures online, and people immediately noticed there was something different about his eyes.

“I don’t really know if it’s some genetic conditions, but surely it does make a memorable look.”
