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.
“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.”
Pyong-Bong admits that it’s a little strange but said that his dog was quite fond of cats. According to Pyong-Bong, his dog disappeared one night and must have hooked up with one of the alley cats.
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?”
Do you think his dog really gave birth to a cat?
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.”
“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.”
