World Famous Cy Kitten Finds a New Home

Saturday, April 13th, 2019

When the world was first shocked

On December 2005 an API national news story splashed on the Internet and newspapers with a photo of a one-eyed cat affectionally named Cy. Short for cyclops because Cy was a baby kitten born with one centrally located eye. The world ’s reaction to the cute yet repulsive image was mixed with affection, amazement and  unbelief.  Many could not buy that the shocking photo was real. “Photo-shop” they claimed!

The Lost World Museum realized the poor kitty would allow our 1 year old web site on the Internet  to piggy back the international recognition she had received but more importantly the cute one-eye mutant would exemplify a major talking point in the evolution vs. creation debate…Mutations.

Creation vs. Evolution debate

Cy was a product of genetic mutation.  Evolution’s main tenant of belief is that “Positive mutations” are vital to morph a rodent to a monkey to a human.

What we countered or rather what Cy said was, a mutation is either negative or at best neutral never “positive”. Mutations usually kill organisms or reduce any kind of positive forward momentum in the evolutionary. That there are not any examples of  “positive” mutations casts doubt that RNA  3 billion years could morph that RNA to us humans today.

2019 Cy Moves to a New Home

Joe Caltabiano from Oddities Bizarre contacted us through eBay and was very enthusiastic in becoming  Cy’s new owner. We decided to let Cy go to Joe and I’ll tell you why.  When we first launched the Lost World Museum with Cy, the media branded us as an oddity museum. This is far from our mission. And Cy, even though she fits so well with our evolutionary mutation discussion and mission had one problem. To see this specimen floating in her alcohol bottle environment, people found her as an oddity more so than the spokes kitten for creationism.

It was a tough decision, but Cy marched on to a better home with a new context with Joe Caltabiano as the new owner. To learn more about Cy.  First visit Joe’s web site at www.odditiesbizarre.com and read his cool story of the Cy-clops kitten by Clicking Here

Also visit our Lost World Store. Cy still has an amazing story to tell. On the back of this 3-part photo card set, Cy goes into detail about her short life, the media reaction plus she challenges the evolutionary position of “positive” mutations as a building block for evolution’s amoeba to man hypothesis.

We wish Joe Caltabiano at Oddities Bizarre all the best…and fair well Cy.

Evolutionists insist that all life is the result of “millions of beneficial chance mutations” that happened over millions of years — yeah, those mutations really worked well for Cy Kitty!

Cyclops Cat Joins the Museum

Thursday, April 6th, 2006


Many of you are here because of all the media hype surrounding the Cyclops kitten. Well, yes, we did acquire it from owner Traci Allen of Redmond, Oregon and YES it is real and not a Photoshop hoax. Allow me to give the reason for our interest in this cute mutant…

How we “evolved” :
Evolution states that millions of mutations over millions of years with the help of environmental pressures can lift a species from the ape like creature we call Lucy to us today.

Question #1 Do positive mutations exist?  Mutations, like Cy, are either neutral or negative, never positive. Then how can mutations be a genetic building block to a successful “next step” in evolutionary process?

Questions #2 Can mutations, given enough time and chance, really produce greater intelligence, reason, speech and even spirituality to beings? Is it easier to believe that we came from Adam and Eve and not Lucy and Steve?
Either way it requires faith because we did not observe Adam created from the dust of the earth, Nor did we see Lucy walking about to know for sure if she was a monkey or a person in an evolving state. Allow me to go further and state, w
e have not directly observed evolution produce a lung from a gill,  nor a arm from a fin.

Cy will be on display at the Lost World Museum.     As the Museum’s spokes animal, Cy will assist in the understanding process of what evolution postulates about the theory of life and contrast that idea with what creationism states as to the answer to the origins question. Where did we come from?
