View the message here: The three-eyed kitten touched many hearts, many expressed their love. One user wrote: “He’s the chosen one!” One curious user commented, “However, is the third eye functional? Does it share a retina?” A vet tried to explain to the Redditors about the condition: “Random mutations happen all the time. Most are corrected or the cell is eliminated before it multiplies. Of those that are allowed to stay, most are irrelevant, in a non-coding part of the DNA. But few really get through it and cause an interesting change like this. Other examples of such mutations are polydactyly, albinism, heterochromia and so on.” “Hope it’s not painful…because that looks painful,” the fourth comment read.
