Cy, the delightful but dead cyclops kitty, will apparently be displayed in the Lost World Museum, a new wunderkammer
slated to open in Phoenix, New York later this year. (Previous BB posts about Cy here
.) Exhibitor John Adolfi would not reveal how much he shelled out for Cy's remains. From the Associated Press:
The Oregon woman who owned the kitten said she turned down Ripley's Believe it or Not! and sold the remains to John Adolfi of Granby because she liked his religious reasons for wanting them.
"We didn't want Cy becoming a joke or part of a personal collection," Traci Allen said. "But John was so heartfelt, you could tell he was genuine and sincere..."
Other exhibits will include giant plants and eggs, deformed animal remains and archaeological finds, Adolfi said.

"The mission of the Lost World Museum is to present the greatest evidence ever assembled which validates the creation account found in the book of Genesis," says their mission statement. What a sad ending to the story of Cy.
