A Trio of Ableptic Rodents

A trio of rodents of the species Mus muscula suffering from acute ablepsia,
A trio of rodents of the species Mus muscula suffering from acute ablepsia,
Observe the peculiar manner in which they ambulate!
Observe the peculiar manner in which they ambulate!
The entire group, with one accord, pursued the agricultural engineer's spouse;
She, in turn, retaliated both quickly and effectively by amputating their posterior appendages with a large blade typically used in cleaving the muscle tissue of animals which have been prepared for ingestion by cooking.

Portuguese/Catalan/Italian: ablepsia
Spanish: ablepsía (at least I think, I didn't find it in the RAE dictionary), it could be ablepsia, though. Spanish sometimes has a weird way of accenting words. Need some help here!
French: ablépsie
Romanian: ablepsie
