That is really creepy.
and..... dead. Poor thing.
Awww poor thing :cry:
I would have loved to have it around the house if it could have lived a healthy, happy life. I'd scare children with it.
I'm kinda not buying it
the eye is too big, it's what we'd expect after the long trial and error process of evolution instead of a single chance mutation.
maybe it's real, but I just don't buy it
THe radio station here in Tampa did a background check on it, its legit...
I also did a snopes check and it is listed as true
I also have a problem with it, taking into consideration that kittens are born with their eyes sealed closed -- they don't open for a couple of weeks.
look at the link I posted.... http://www.snopes.com/photos/animals/cyclopes.asp
that Link doesn't say it's real, it says a similar condition exists, and that the pictures aren't photoshopped
now, if you take a look at actual photos of the condition, I think you'd agree this cat is almost definitely a hoax, even when the eye has symetrical fusion, it's not round and the rest of the head is asymmetrical
the pictures I just searched up on the condition are what you we'd expect from a single mutation, the picture of the cat is what you'd expect from the long trial and error period of evolution
as I said, it might be real, but now that I've seen actual photos of the condition, I doubt it even more
So doesn't that still mean its real? I mean if its not photoshopped then its real. Unless someone used paint or Gimp :laugh:
there are plenty of hoaxes that have nothing to do with trick photography, for instance the piltdown man
a pretty good hoax that took 40 years to expose
Actually, the link does say it's true at the very top of the page:
Claim: Photograph shows Cyclopes, a kitten born with a single cyclopic eye
After looking around (including your link, perris), I think it's conceivable...
you're right, it does say it's true, but following the links that it provides to come to it's conclusion gives me more data to conclude the opposite, I'm more convinced it's a hoax, but I've been wrong before, that's for certain
anyway, if it's true
I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken... LOL!
I really felt compelled to prove it was a hoax myself... I guess it's just a natural reflex to try and dispell one's own insecurities by pointing out that somebody else is wrong (or stupid)... And it's a really hard habit to break: especially when you are terminally insecure!
