One-Eyed 'Cyclops' Kitten Will Touch Your Heart, Then Break It (VIDEO)

Awww! 35

one-eyed kittenOMG. Have you seen the video of the precious little one-eyed "cyclops" Bengal kitten who was born about a week ago yet? Because if you haven't, you're missing out on having an experience where you're so touched yet so heartbroken at the same time, it's kind of hard to process the range of emotions pouring in.

The tiny kitten, named Cleyed, was one of three babies born after his mother was rushed to the veterinarian for emergency surgery due to the horns of her uterus being twisted. When the first baby was delivered from the mama cat, one of the vet techs dried her off, and discovered that she was, indeed, a very rare one-eyed cat.

At first you'll watch this video and be astonished at how sweet and adorable little Cleyed is -- and then the "R.I.P." part comes. Try to control yourself from weeping after watching this clip.


Let me guess, you need an entire box of tissues, right? I just about did, because I found it next to impossible to get over the heartbreak of such an incredible creature being born and only surviving for a matter of minutes. (The poor little thing!)

But even though her time on Earth was brief, little Cleyed will no doubt leave a lasting impression on everyone who hears her story. It's simply impossible not to be moved by something so rare. However, there's always a silver lining -- the mama cat and her other two kittens did survive and are doing just fine. (But it's just so sad that this little beauty didn't make it too!)

Did this video break your heart?

It's a shame that kitten passed. But it was probably for the best. I'm sure the kitten would have had some serious medical issues between breathing, eating and eye functions. Its quality of life would have been very poor :( It was definitely an amazing little thing though.

I may sound heartless, but that kitten gives me the creeps.

I agree, CPN, they sure weren't being very gentle with her at all. Poor thing :(

I also agree with you, yayheadstart, it was a tad creepy. Still very sad, though.

I don't animals born with things like that live very long. Poor little kitty.


Yayheadstart, that totally caught me off guard and gave me the chuckle I needed to get out of that funk.

the kitten looked like it was already dead wasn't moving or nothing that person should not have been handling the kitten that way what an a-hole

Well that was just creepy. No tears here. Just confused as to why its supposed to make me cry. I'll save my tears for the millions of HUMAN babies that die each year for the crime of being conceived.
