Satanic Cat Watch: Day 2483

This has got to be a sign of the apocalypse.

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a … cat?

A kitty in Chongqing, China, is getting some extra-special attention these days: The furry feline has developed wings! Though born looking completely normal, once the cat hit the age of 1, he began growing wing-shaped appendages on either side of his spine, the U.K.'s Daily Mail reports.

While some think the bony limbs may be a mutation of some kind — or even a Siamese twin growing inside the cat — others speculate it's a genetic change perhaps caused by chemicals ingested by the kitty's mother while she was pregnant.

Veterinary experts said then that despite the hard inner core, the "wings" don't harm cats' quality of life or safety. According to the Telegraph's report, scientists believe the appendages developed due to grooming habits, a genetic defect or a hereditary skin condition

Is that pretty screwy or what? Cats with wings. All of a sudden I'm reminded of that quote from Ghostbusters.

Dogs and cats, living together. Mass hysteria!

The idea that 'grooming' some how caused this seems pretty ridiculous. I'm willing to bet that no matter how often or how strongly you lick yourself, you're not going to grow any extra appendages. In fact, I'll issue that as a challenge if anyone out there wants to take me up on it. Just start licking yourself and let me know the minute you grow a new foot or a tail or something.

I can't quite help but suspect this is some sort of evil plot.

Step 1: Genetically engineer cats with wings
Step 2: ???
Step 3: Profit and world domination

If this is an experiment, then I figure something like this will be the final product.

And you thought smashing bumblebees made a fucking mess. You'd have to take a bat to something like this and there would be fur and guts everywhere.

No you don't. You just think you want one and will up until the point it eats your face.

*laughing* so your not going to try to lick yourself???? As an experiment??

If licking things really caused them to grow, there are guys out there who could never sit up straight again.

maybe this is what's wrong with one of the cats next door! i've been staring at it for years, wondering if it had an extra tail or maybe an extra leg...there's SOMETHING growing out of it's back, and now this makes a whole lot of sense. it's growing a wing! it only has one so far, if it grows another i'll have to run it over or something before it can convince the other cats that growing wings is the way to go.

As if normal cats weren't bad enough. I just hope they never learn how to fly. Having bird poop land on your car is bad enough.

Why is it that so many stories like these seem to come from some obscure Chinese province?

I assume because that's where the government buries the radioactive waste.
