A cross-eyed cat has earned thousands of dollars for charities.

The cat, called Belarus, has been used by an American lady to help raise thousands of dollars for local pet shelters.

Rachel, the owner of Belarus, has been selling t-shirts with his face on the front. The t-shirts have become incredibly popular – thanks to his adorable ‘googly eyes’

The pupils of poor Belarus’s bright yellow eyes face in separate directions thanks to a condition called strabismus, leaving him with a permanently confused expression.

Despite the condition, Belarus has very few apparent issues with his vision, apart from occasionally pawing at his water bowl.

Last year, Belarus raised $6,000 for animal shelters, with $4,000 to Belarus’ shelter SFACC, $1,000 to Sonoma Community Animal Response Team for their efforts saving animals from the Sonoma wildfire, and $1,000 to Cat Town of Oakland.
