Dog Gives Birth To Cat? Man In North Korea Makes Strange Claim

Can a dog give birth to a cat? Jeong Pyong-bong, a man in North Korea, claims that his dog recently had a litter of puppies... only they weren't all puppies. One of the little dogs was meowing and purring like a kitten.

Pyong-Bong said:

"It's quite true. This is a miracle... After the little animal was born I stared at it in disbelief. It looked like a cat and was meowing like a cat. So how can it be a puppy? People from all over town have been calling at my house to have a look as the news has spread."

The man said:

I think I know how this happened. My dog went for a long wander one night - in fact she was out all night - and I think she got up to some mischief with the ally cats. How else do you explain this?"

According to Professor Son Chang-ho of Chonnnam National University's College of Veterinary Science, the mans' story is likely fake. Regardless of how man cats the dog had sex with, "it's impossible for a dog to give birth to a cat."

Chang-ho said:

"The number and trait of chromosomes in canines and felines are completely different. It is possible that this is a puppy that just looks like a kitten."
