The Meowclops is capable of seeing everything, including that which is hidden (such as the Hidden Tower). However, it cannot tell how far away it is and probably doesn't know what to do with what it sees. Its name is a portmanteau of meow - onomatopoeia for the sound cats make - and cyclops - a one-eyed being, originally a one-eyed giant.
The Meowclops was introduced and retired on October 11, 2002, when it changed from a Cyclopian into its present day form. Due to this and the fact owning a Meowclops rewards a user with an avatar, The price of the Petpet has as of January 2009 risen to over 7 million Neopoints, making the Trading Post the only place a user can buy one.
As of July 2010, the Meowclops can come in 19 different colours:
Before the Meowclops was known as a "Meowclops", it was known as the Spooky Petpet Cyclopian. Released on (need date), it resembled a cyclops in both name and appearance. It was one of the less popular Petpets in Neopets' early years, which is why it was among the Petpets redesigned on October 11, 2002. Like the others, it was immediately retired after the change.
It is not impossible to still own a Cyclopian. Any Petpet who was attached to a Neopet at the time of the change will stay the same. It will revert to the new version if it is removed, which means only a few users still have a Cyclopian.
