Cyclopes Kitten

Cy, short for Cyclopes, a kitten born with only one eye and no nose, is shown in this photo provided by its owner in Redmond, Oregon, on Wednesday, Dec. 28, 2005. The kitten, a ragdoll breed, which died after living for one day, was one of two in the litter. Its sibling was born normal and healthy.
Wow, what a picture! The armchair geneticist in me hopes they do a DNA test on the cat to figure out what caused it. If we could create animals with 1 eye (or maybe 3 eyes), that would be too cool. Who wouldn't want a cyclopes cat?
