Having the sunglasses – lined with stick-on jewels – helps stop debris from going in Bagel’s eyes, which could damage her cornea and lead to blindness.

Every once in a while Karen will remove her eyewear to allow the cat to wash, but when out in public, she usually keeps them on, drawing a lot of attention.
