But one cat is causing a stir on the social media app right now and not for the reasons you might expect. Over on @jazzy.purs, a feline named Jasper has garnered over 80,000 followers thanks to his rather unusual appearance.

Jasper, or Jazzy as he is also known, was adopted by his owner Kelli when he was just two-years-old. At the time he appeared to be perfectly healthy, but she quickly realised that wasn’t the case. Soon the cat started to have the occasional flare-up of the feline herpes virus, which caused runny eyes.

He later developed a corneal ulcer in his right eye in November 2013, which got so bad the eye had to be removed. Jasper was left with one eye until a few years later he developed the same problem in his left eye and it also had to be removed. If that weren’t all enough, the poor animal suffered a stroke in April 2019, which he found it difficult to recover from.

Speaking to Today.com about her beloved pet, Kelli explained how he has adjusted to life without his eyes. She said: “He does pretty good. The first day home from the vet, he was climbing on the couch and on my shoulder and all over the place trying to explore. It was amazing to watch him.

“A lot of people seem to have concerns I’m stretching this out and think he has no quality of life.”Through every step of the way, I made sure I was keeping in touch with my vets and asking, ‘Are we at a point where a quality of life discussion needs to happen?’ As strange as it sounds, he has a good quality of life. He’s a happy cat.”

Kelli recently also rescued two other cats, meaning Jasper has some companions. One of them, named Tessa, is also blind and she and Jasper were said to have “immediately bonded”.Fans on Instagram can’t get enough of the trio – especially Jasper.

One person commented: “My heart melts when I see him he’s so precious.”Another said: “I’m obsessed with Jasper, he looks like a living Halloween decoration.”A third added: “What a handsome guy!!”
