An amazing story about how a cat started growing wings in China, reported by major newspapers on 27 August 2008. They news report states that a cat started to develop wings during a period of hot weather in Sichuan, southern China where a devastating earthquake struck this spring. Although the growths appear fluffy, they contain bone. But veterinary experts say that despite the hard inner core, the flaps do not harm the cat's quality of life or safety. Several animals were photographed with the furry protuberances by a local newspaper photographer.
Although Feng attributed her pet's condition to the stress of a feline love life and the hot Sichuan summer. However, scientists said the wings had a less romantic explanation. In fact, the hairy growths probably developed because of unusual grooming habits, a genetic defect or a hereditary skin condition.
