One-Eyed Cat Had Medical Condition

POSTED: 7:20 am EST January 11, 2006

PORTLAND, Ore -- A photo of a one-eyed kitten named Cy drew more than a little skepticism when it turned up on various Web sites, but medical authorities have a name for the bizarre condition.

"Holoprosencephaly" causes facial deformities, according to the National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke, part of the National Institutes of Health. In the worst cases, a single eye is located where the nose should be, according to the institute's Web site.

Traci Allen says the kitten she named Cy, short for Cyclops, was born the night of Dec. 28 with the single eye and no nose.

LOL, I'd say that's an extreme understatement...

I saw this on Tucker Carlson...I think it's a good thing the cat died, may it rest in peace.

The same story was in my local newspaper. Supposedly a specialist looked at the original file of the photos (they were on a disk) and said that there was no way the picture could be photoshoped from so many angles.
