A man in North Korea is saying that his pet dog has just had a litter of puppies but not all of them were puppies. He claims that his dog also gave birth to a cat.
Jeong Pyong-Bong said that one of the puppies was purring just like a kitten. Pyong-Bong said that not only was the puppy purring like a kitten but it was also meowing like a kitten.
According to Inquisitr, Pyong-Bong said that it was a miracle and that all he could do was stare at the animal in disbelief. He went onto say that there was no way the animal could have been a puppy, and that once the news spread he started to get a lot of people contacting him to look at it.
According to Times Of India, Pyong-Bong said that he may have an idea of how it happened. He said that the only explanation is that his dog was wandering one night and she ran into some ally cats.
According to The Asian Age, experts have said that a 'miracle birth' such as the one Pyong-Bong has described is not genetically possible.
Professor Son Chang-ho of Chonnnam National University's College of Veterinary Science said that it is not possible for a dog to give birth to a kitten. He went onto say that a puppy could end up looking like a kitten but the trait and number of chromosomes in dogs and cats are very different.
