Cyclops Kitten Added To Internet Cat Sensations
Cleyed, a one-eyed Bengal kitten, was unable to survive very long outside his mother’s womb, but for the short amount of time he was on this Earth, he made a big impression.
Unfortunately, the severe deformities to Cleyed’s face would have made it near impossible for him to survive very long in the world without help, but as sad as his story is, the surgeons working on his mother say their lives have been changed for the better after seeing him.
“We have a Bengal cat that was pregnant and only a day past here due date,” the YouTube description says. “On Thursday October 4th 2012 I brought her into our vet and I am SO Glad that I did, We have an amazing veterinarian who did the C-Section procedure and if she didn’t….. Mamma Kitty would be dead now.
All of us in the operating room experienced a VERY RARE once in a lifetime (Hopefully) kitten births. 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. A vet tech came in and I handed her the first baby and got the second kitten that our vet removed….
WOW!!!! He floored me, I was in shock as I have only seen a picture of a Cyclops kitten like this ONCE ever… and that was on the internet. He was born alive and survived only a short time. This was a horribly sad experience, but very intriguing to us all.
A short bit after Cleyed was delivered, the third baby was removed and she was a beautiful healthy baby.
Mom and the two girls are doing WONDERFUL……”
