In any case, if your cat happens to have those very interesting eyes, Michael recommends her to a veterinarian to determine cause and treatment.
"If it turns out to be inherited," she explains, "Treatment is often not needed as it won't affect your pet's quality of life."

A little more common is a condition called eyelid agenesis, which, according to Vetbook.org, often happens to more than one cat in a litter, domestic or wild.
