LOS ANGELES — Bagel the cat has become the latest internet sensation, after a rare condition has resulted in her having to wear sunglasses. The two-year-old cat was born without eyelids, which makes her eyes extra sensitive and in need of protection. Despite her condition, Karen McGill adopted Bagel when she was only two months old. McGill knew that if she didn’t adopt her, the special needs cat would have otherwise been euthanized.
Now Bagel is winning the hearts of many people as McGill posts photos of her wearing various bejewelled sunglasses to her Instagram account. To her many online fans, Bagel is simply known as the Sunglass Cat. In addition to her eye condition, Bagel is also unable to regulate her own body temperature so she sometimes has to wear clothing. Regardless of her medical needs, McGill says she wouldn’t change a thing and that the cat brings a lot of joy into many peoples lives.
McGill reveals it took Bagel some time to get used to the sunglasses but that she has now grown accustomed to them and associates them with protection and comfort. Occasionally the sunglasses come off, so that McGill can wash Bagels eyes. However when Bagel is in public she always wears her eyewear, making her the coolest cat in the neighborhood.
