One-Eyed Kitten Will Go To Oddity Museum
Oregon Woman Sells Remains To Owner
GRANBY, N.Y. -- The one-eyed, noseless kitten that inspired an international debate last year over whether it was a hoax is coming to a new museum of oddities in central New York.
The museum founder believes in creationism. John Adolfi says the kitten is meant to launch another debate about how science and religion intersect.
The Oregon woman who owned the kitten said she turned down Ripley's Believe it or Not! Traci Allen sold the remains to Adolfi because she liked his religious reasons for wanting them.
The kitten died in December, a day after being born. Adolfi plans to have it embalmed at a local funeral home.
Cy will be displayed in a glass jar in the Lost World Museum. Adolfi hopes to open the museum in nearby Phoenix this fall. Adolfi says other exhibits will include giant plants and eggs, deformed animal remains and archaeological finds.
