    For some reason, this reminds me about the story of the now extinct Longhorses.

    How the heck would poor grooming create wings? With bones?

  9. Takuan says:

    oh no! these are boneless cat-wings (we all know where this is heading)

  10. ironcrow says:

    Absolutely possible. They are not wings however. The fur has become matted and rolled. Just look at it, no bones, just matted up fur. Problem is that there will probably be very nasty sores beneath those wads of clumped up mattings.

    Takuan, where? KFC spicy cat wings? Yummo.

  12. Cherib says:

    Flying cats?

    Well, that’s a wrap on humanity. See you all at the after party.

    So when you click on the link, you get two more pictures. But when you compare the face pattern of the cat in the first picture with the other two, they’re different. So my question is how many winged cats are we looking at here? Or maybe…hmm…

    POOR GROOMING? Man, those are all lame reasons.

    But if it’s true – I’m not taking anymore showers until I can fly.

  16. ciaomeow says:

    our cat, who looks similar to 1st pic, also had ‘wings’ in his 1st year, but only about 4-5″ long & not matted dread-locks. just longer hair at the rib, just behind the fore-leg. it was super cute, but when he started coughing up serious hair balls, we cut his ‘wings’. & of course, that hair is getting longer again.

    This is like national inquirer in the 1980′s

  18. manicbassman says:

    #2 you’ve obviously never seen the state a cat’s fur can get in when it becomes “matted”

    I have no faith in this report… has anyone been able to check the cat using proper scientific instruments such as x-rays and ultrasound?

    DfZ to the rescue, with a link for winged cats. I found this site looking for information on polydactyl cats:

    Jane? Is that your kitten? (Catwings joke!)

  21. jeffbell says:

    It reminds me of the excellent children’s book by Ursula K. Le Guin called Catwings.

    In the book the kittens are urged to leave the city by their mother, so they fly to the countryside.

    They biggest danger they face is from the owl who realizes the threat they pose to her hatchlings, so the cat must stick to daytime flying.

    Well golly gosh gee! Them people are sitting on a GOLDMINE! Not only does the second cat in the article, the calico, have wings, it is also claimed to be MALE! That poor kitty is one genetic abomination, isn’t it?
    *sarcasm*

    (For those who don’t know: brown and orange kitty coat colors are tied to the X chromosome with only one color being able to occupy the X. So for calicoes, tortoiseshells,etc, there has to be two X chromosomes, one for each color. So any “male” callie kitty is not genetically male. Back in the day “male” calicoes were worth a pretty penny… until it was eventually figured out that they were all sterile hermaphrodites.)

    Anyone consider the possibility that winged cats are descendants of Dragons? Cats cant spit fire, but they got the hair ball thing down pat!

  24. IamInnocent says:

    All right, he is a cat with wings, so what ? Not the first, nor the last.

    He is a male cat harassed, sexually, by *many* females: one male and a bunch of female that were into rough sex, now there’s a first!!!

    I for one welcome our new winged cat overlords

  30. soupisgoodfood says:

    If it’s a real winged cat, why does it still have front legs?

  31. t3hmadhatter says:

    #26
    bwahahahahaha. i was thinking somewhat along the lines of “i can has human souls?” but yours is better.

    on another point, are we even sure the wings HAVE bones?

    The link takes you to the DailyMail online site.

    The DailyMail is the British version of the National Inquirer.

    It’s not quite as bad but you can never believe anything printed in that rag.

    enough said!

  34. Antinous says:

    Not to get all anatomical, but if the cat has wings and front legs, it would require two sets of pectoral muscles to operate them. Which is why the better sort of cinematic dragon only has two legs.

  35. cubbybear says:

    china was known for fugding up olympic photos so why not this too.

    Astronomical Cat is real!

    Astronomical Cat
    Aeronautical flying cat.

    Probably Coiffio’s most trusworthy of followers, Astronomonical Cat has succeeded in stealing the hamburger necklace and dismembering the arm of the King of Animals. Unfortunately, Coiffio didn’t really want him to do either of these things. Still, he’s cute.

    He has an awesome theme tune.

    So…it’s a griffin?

  39. Bitty62268 says:

    I groomed cats for 6+ years and I can guarantee that those supposed “wings” are nothing more then matted fur. For starters they said the “wings” started to occur on the cats when the weather got hot, for one cat, and when the other cat became stressed. Both heat and stress will cause cats to excessively shed. If you have a long haired cat, which both “winged” cats are, and you don’t brush them during the excessive shedding they will get mats. When a long haired cat starts to mat up, and you do nothing about it, the mats will start to pull away from the skin and get extremely long and rock solid. The mats will actually get hard enough that you can’t cut through them with scissors, which is why they probably think there are bones in them. Also, one of the most common places for cats to develop these kinds of mats are between the shoulder blades because cats have a more difficult time twisting their heads back to groom those areas. Basically these are simple minded, superstitious people that don’t know any better. I had a customer before bring her cat in and try to tell me the cat had 4 ears because it developed a long pointed mat directly behind each ear. Man was she surprised when I shaved them off to reveal that her cat, in fact, only had two ears.

    Yay, if many females want to mate with me, I think I’ll grow wings, too. LOL. >_O

  41. kcd says:

    I believe that this cat is about to
    EVOLVE… Like Human being? They evolving
    in to different face or structure of body?
    That is because of the blood of the men
    or women genes. So the result is beautiful
    or ugly man.

  42. epic lulz says:

    its in china….maybe the pollution caused it to grow wings….lulz

  43. Zan says:

  44. yakenyah says:
