Winged cat

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

You can get anything from China.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/30967440/



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.

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.

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