Fame can be so short on the Internet. A winged cat has already stolen the thunder of the four-eared cat, Yoda.
Meet Tom, the unique winged cat which developed a pair of fur-covered wings during the recent hot weather spell in China’s Sichuan province.
"At first, they were just two bumps, but they started to grow quickly, and after a month there were two wings," said Tom’s owner, Feng.
"Many female cats in heat came to harass him, and then the wings started to grow."
Genetic experts explained that such "wings" an be attributed to a genetic defect or a hereditary skin condition. However, Tom was not born with these wings, he developed them. Ah, poor Tom couldn’t handle all this sexual tension,. Couldn’t these mischievous cats just leave him be?
