Get this.


A dog has become a local celebrity in a Chinese village after she reportedly gave birth to a kitten. It was the third in the litter. “The first two puppies the dog produced were both normal, but when the third baby came, the whole family was very surprised to see a cat-like creature. It is a cat, not a dog at all,” said Hua, the dog’s owner. Local residents have been flocking to the man’s house to see the ‘kitten’ which local vets say is really a puppy which looks like a cat because of a gene mutation. It apparently yaps like a puppy.

Well, it looks like a kitten. What an amazing story. Keep us posted, ED (sorry about pun)!

this cannot be real.
it just cannot be real.
a dog doesn't become a cat thru a gene mutation.

entertaining, but not believable! i need YouTube video of the actual birth!

It does rather look like a genuine kitty and not a puppy doesn't it. As Laurie said: it would be interesting if there really was a video of it. Fascinating, if it were true.

Very odd, maybe a publicity stunt or something?
