Angry The newest bizzar trend in pets.

I saw this last night, unbelievable.

~*~*~*~*~*~

Cat + Dog = New Hybrid Pet!

Hybrid cats are simply all the rage these days. It doesn't take much work at all to track down a lovely hybrid cat that combines exotic looks with the temperament of a lap cat. But what if you want a cat with a bolder bark? Heck, how about a cat with an actual bark? Thanks to new cross-species breeding techniques, the answer is here: the PuppyCat. MainCoonhound

BM, LMPG, I was hoping to reel in a few. I've got to watch my back now.

Mimzy, that's disturbing.

Well, today is April Fool's Day - and the birthday of my American Eskimo who today turns 5. It seems that the 2 people who have Eskies no longer post - they would understand that in fact there is already a hydrid cat/dog combo - it is called the AMERICAN ESKIMO! Cat-like hair and mannerisms.

Mimzy: Your post is terribly upsetting and sick. I have asked the mods to delete it if you don't.

As far as i know, bonsai kitten is just a hoax. http://www.snopes.com/critters/crusader/bonsai.asp But still, it is really sick.

I certainly hope it's a hoax, but the picture is just very disturbing and sad to look at. I wish I could scrub my brain free of that image.:sad:

Oh don't worry I'd never post anything upsetting. I wouldn't be looking at it myself. At the very least I'd post a warning first.

I got this in email from Catster and Dogster. Looked like their usual newsletter. I saw it and thought, wth? Then when I clicked the link, I got the same April Fools kitty.

Don't worry, it's just an internet hoax. None of it is real. I looked it up.

LMPG, I looked it up online and it was just a joke. Here is the link to the information: http://www.snopes.com/critters/crusader/bonsai.asp. It's still in bad taste.

Here's part of what it says:
