Ichneutron sent me a link to this picture of Cy, the Cyclops Kitten
on Yahoo Photos. According to the info on Yahoo, Cy was born in Redmond, Oregon, on Dec. 28, 2005 with only one eye and no nose. He lived for one day. The other cat in the litter (there were only two) was born normal. The photo is by Traci Allen. There's no reason to think the photo isn't real. The condition is known as Cyclopia. Messybeast.com gives this description
The eyes are fused into a single enlarged eye that is placed below the nose (the nose may or may not form, if it forms it resembles a proboscis). Much of the face may be missing, such that the eye and proboscis (if present) are placed near the crown of the skull... Severe cases of cyclopia result in stillbirth or in death within a few hours of birth.
The four-eyed kitten
, however, remains a hoax.
I notice that quite
people are calling hoax on this picture. But I'm keeping it listed as real. After all, it's a known form of mutation, and the photo has a source.
And the photoshops of Cy have begun.
Update 3 (April 8, 2006):
Cy's owner has sold him
to the Lost Museum, a creationist museum opening soon in Phoenix, NY.
