Why does my cat’s eyes bug out?

Any cat owner (or cat lover) is familiar with this look that cats give.  When cats are extremely alert, spooked, very curious, or scared, their eyes become extremely large.  Why does this happen?  Well, your cat is on alert and is trying to use their eye sight its fullest potential.  In other words, your cat’s eyes get large so they can see better!  Some cats, however, seem to do this sometimes for no reason at all (like in the photo below!)
