All God’s Kitties Got Wings?

cats-wings-2– – Not wishing to alarm you, valued readers, but you may wish to know that a cat has been born in Chongqing, China with wing-like growths on their back…moreover, other cats with this feature were noted in Sichuan province in China in August of 2008 (pictured).

“…and why not?,” you may ask.  “Don’t the Chinese manufacture everything else these days?”

The point is well-taken.  It is to be stressed that these are only wing-like growths, not true wings, even though there is bone in them.  The growths are non-functional at present, and do not seem to be causing the kitties any discomfort or emotional distress.  The speculation is that the growths resulted from exposure to chemicals in utero, or may be a genetic defect.- -The wings may even be the remnants of a cojoined twin!

All of this poses some interesting questions:

…if cats can fly, will pigs be far behind?

…are you in danger from aerial hairballs?

…wouldn’t “Skycat” be a great new Japanese anime character?

…would wings give “Sylvester” an unfair advantage over “Tweety?”

…would wings improve “Scratchy’s” odds against “Itchy?”

…wouldn’t “Catwoman” be even more awesome if she could fly?

(Directions:  Break into small groups to discuss the above.  Alternative activity:  sketch “Skycat”)

– -Clearly, what is now needed is a cat with a set of wings that work… and I ask you, why isn’t MonsterQuest on top of this story?!    😉

    Courageous Cat certainly wouldn’t need the Catplane, anymore.*

    *COURAGEOUS CAT & MINUTE MOUSE was a syndicated cartoon of the early 1960’s created Bob “Batman” Kane, himself!
