New Chinese Winged Kitty Cat

Winged kitty cats are not unheard of in China, but a new alate feline is always news.

The winged cats can not fly, of course, or you would have heard about them before. They would be like these flying killer sharks.

Scientists have narrowed down the explanation for the growth of these wings as environmental, or genetic, or developmental.

…scientists believe the appendages developed due to grooming habits, a genetic defect or a hereditary skin condition.

…. keep us posted on that, scientists.
