Maybe it's not real? Anyone remember Bonsai Kitty?

ETA: not sure why it won't allow me to post that link

I guess I'm still in denial and thinking it's a marketing ploy? I'm a cat person and don't see the need to make them like dogs.

OK, I don't get why this cat is anything special? They're just a combination of things that already occur in certain breeds (manx and Scottish fold): cropped tail and folded ears and also polydactyl (not really breed-specific, but not all that rare).

If anything bothers me, it's this

Quote:
They can be easily trained to the leash and to fetch.
Fetch, yes, many cats love fetch, but domestic cats of any breed really don't belong on leashes.

If this is for real, its disgusting and completely unethical. Altering animal genes to 'create' a special 'dogcat' ??

And the Bonsai kitten link is censored here because it is also disgusting.

I didn't see them say anywhere that they had combined dog and cat genes. I think they just bred cats to have personality characteristics more like that of a dog, just like they breed for different physical characteristics.

That's awful.

When my cat Will was a kitten I trained him to walk in a harness. My roommates made fun of me unmercifully. He loves car rides too.

I don't put him the harness anymore. He doesn't need it. The only cat I've ever heard of that can be leash trained are Bengals. (asian leopard mix)
