Poor little thing. I'm surprised the mother cat didn't make a meal of it, that sometimes happens even with healthy kittens.
I've seen quite a few human fetal cyclopes preserved in formalin in my Path museum. 'Fetal monsterism' - somehow that term never got considered un-PC and replaced by some other euphemism.

But it looks really cool!! Its like an alien or something, but its still cute.
I almost thought it was an alien.
What I find strange about the pic -
The "eye" is significantly larger than normal kitten eyes would be at that postnatal time.
Kittens are born with their eyes closed and do not open them for at least several days and this one supposedly only survived one day.
The singular form of Cyclops is not spelled with an "es".
Based on this, my general impression about the picture and what I know can be easily done in Photoshop, I'm hesitant to believe it.
Yeah, I followed the same logic. It is associated Press, but I'll hedge my bets.
Interestingly, the human fetal Cyclopes I've seen seemed to have eyes that were significantly larger than a normal fetal/neonatal eye. Also, the eye was exposed, the fused set of eyelids presumably not having enough reach to cover the organ.
I've not seen fetal cyclopes of other mammals, but from my memory of what human fetal monsters look like, I don't see a reason to doubt the authenticity of this image.
It's the InterWeb, I doubt by default.
Here is another mythical cyclopscat, straight from ogrish.com:
That looks very fake...
Yeah, that one's fake.
I saw another article about it soewhere.
They say the the AP writer got ahold of the origianl memory card and that there are several differnt angles and a correct sequence. I guess he thinks that they are basicly unfakeable. Also, I guess the lady is preserving it in a freexer in case any scientists want to look at it.
