There’s something odd about this story of a cat mating with a dog and giving birth to puppies. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but it might have something to do with the fact that cats and dogs are entirely different species that are so far removed from one another they can no longer produce offspring. Wait, no, that can’t be it.
The woman who owns the miracle cat who “birthed” the puppies is a pregnant low-income 18-year old Brazilian. She and her 26-year old husband believe the lucky canine father is a neighborhood dachshund. Quick thought: if this had happened in Washington state, could we prosecute the dachshund in question for bestiality? Just wondering.
Responding to critics’ charges that she is running a stupid scam that could only be dreamed up by a precocious yet scientifically ignorant and amoral 12-year old, the woman insists she is telling the truth and is insulted by suggestions otherwise. You don’t say.
Seriously, Reuters, what will we be reporting on next? Perhaps some down-on-his-luck fisherman will find another Fiji mermaid (seen at right). If you don’t buy that, well maybe he just found the unfortunate offspring of a monkey in love with a trout. Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow to see Jo-Jo the Dog-faced Boy catch a frisbee.
