One-eyed kitten died an hour after birth

A kitten born with one large single eye and no nose died an hour after its birth late last week in Neijiang, Sichuan Province, west China.



The Persian mix-breed white kitten was born on August 30 and was 10 centimetres long, according to its owner surnamed Wang, a resident in the city’s Shizhong district.

Wang said the kitten passed away an hour after it was born as he rushed it to a local pet hospital for treatment after noticing its odd appearance.



A veterinarian at the Binjiang Pet Hospital surnamed Zeng explained the kitten probably suffocated given it had no nasal cavity.
