Someone should tell the birds to look out – now cats are growing wings.
At least, this cat in the Chinese city of Chongqing in China appears to be.
Animal experts have been left baffled by the fluffy white moggy, who was born normal – but began growing wing-shaped appendages on either side of his spine when he was just a year old.
Some experts believe the bony ‘wings’ are in fact a freak mutation – a Siamese twin growing inside the kitty.
Others think the mutation may be genetic, caused by chemicals during his mother’s pregnancy.
Whatever the answer is, the cat does not seem to mind – with his owners even claiming he enjoys all the attention.
