A cyclops kitten has sent thousands of Internet users into a frenzy this week after its owners posted footage of the rare animal on video sharing website YouTube.
The little kitten was named “Cleyed” and was a one-eyed Bengal kitten.
The video’s description explains that Cleyed was born alive but died soon after, only managing to survive for a “short time” following the birth.
Animals with this deformity do not live, presumably, they can not breathe or eat properly. From the piece, it is suggestive that this breed of cat had some trouble giving birth. Do they have genetic problems? Possibly from inbreeding? Additional information appreciated.
