Cyclops kitten birth cause video to go viral on Internet VIDEO

A cyclops kitten dubbed “Cleyed the Cyclops” was born with just one large eye and no nose according to an Oct. 8, 2012 report by The Huffington Post.

The one-eyed Bengal kitten was rare, but it wasn’t unique. The Internet is virtually teeming with photos and videos of baby animals born with this unusual condition, which is called Cyclopia (also known as cyclocephaly or synophthalmia).

The owner of this special cyclops kitten posted a video of the lifeless body of the little creature on YouTube along with a description of the events leading up to the kitten’s birth. The mother cat had a difficult delivery and would have died without medical intervention. Her owner brought her to a vet who helped the cat deliver three kittens. The two remaining kittens and the mama cat are doing fine.

“All of us in the operating room experienced a VERY RARE once in a lifetime (hopefully) kitten births,” the YouTube description says. “To start off, both horns of the uterus were twisted together THREE times. After untwisting the horns our veterinarian started the surgery and she removed the first baby, the baby was handed to me and I started drying her off.”
