THIS kitten looks like the ultimate scaredy cat as he gives new meaning to the term ‘wide eyed’.  Herman, an exotic shorthair, was born with exceptionally big eyes – giving him a permanently startled expression. The five-month-old kitty lives in Copenhagen, Denmark, with his doting owner Shirley, 26. The kitten’s bulbous eyes are so big that he cannot completely close his eyelids – even when he’s sleeping. However luckily for Shirley, tiny Herman snores, clearly indicating when he’s having a snooze.
