    Winged cat

    I can't sleep, check out what I found.

    You can get anything from China.

    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.

    hmm, I'd guess limbs from it's conjoined twin...
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Its prob total BS, these things pop up all over the interweb, if it was real I'm sure it would be world wide news.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    "The animal probably didn't survive. I heard the spine cracking. Pity, but I couldn't avoid the cat. Luckily I didn't crash."

    so does it fly?

    maybe it is an evolutionary response to cats being run over by bikes

    your cats don't have wings?
    Irregardless is not a word, and you do not sound more intelligent using it.
