Victoria's Secret Feline Mutant Ninja Kitties

OK, I think this is a hoax, but for the sake of argument, let's assume that it is not.

Am I the only one seeing the end of Western civilization here?

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.

Strange as the case may sound, winged felines are not unheard of. Back in August 2008, the U.K. Telegraph reported that tomcats in China's Sichuan province developed wing-like growths on their backs.

Veterinary experts said then that despite the hard inner core, the "wings" don't harm cats' quality of life or safety. According to the Telegraph's report, scientists believe the appendages developed due to grooming habits, a genetic defect or a hereditary skin condition.

Hellooo... howclose is North Korea and it's nuclear testing??? Or, as one astute observer pointed out - perhaps the cats have just evolved to look less tasty.
