I make no promises of truth regarding this story but it’s still interesting.
Maybe the kitten/puppy just couldn’t decide between being a Dogster or a Catster and decided to be both.
Thanks to Jeannette for passing on this article from Ananova.
Dog has kitten
A dog has become a local celebrity in a Chinese village after she reportedly gave birth to a kitten.
Hua Chengpeng, of Huayang village, Jiangyan city, told People’s Daily that the unlikely animal was the third ‘puppy’ in his pet’s litter.
“The first two puppies the dog produced were both normal, but when the third baby came, the whole family was very surprised to see a cat-like creature. It is a cat, not a dog at all,” he said.
Local residents have been flocking to his house to see the ‘kitten’ which local vets say is really a puppy which looks like a cat because of a gene mutation. It apparently yaps like a puppy.
