oh I just saw that on the news. They said they are doing a DNA test so we will soon find out. I highly doubt it though, probably people hoping to get their 15 minutes of fame or soemthing.

I learned in Science class that is absolutely impossible for two different species to actually mate and create off spring. It has to be a bunch of baloney. It is impossible.

I agree with Hope, it's not possible. Just like the Cabbit myth of a rabbit and cat mating.

I don't know what kind of site that is, but some of those articles seem TOO ridiculous (I.e. the one about Jedi Knights wanting the UK to recognize them as an official religion).

Even if this were to happen, I'm sure the pup-tins would be sterile. Look at Mules. They're crossed between a horse and a donkey, but you can't breed mules with other mules.

However I have to agree with the above. Dogs and Cats are too far apart on the classification process to be able to have offspring together.

Horses and Donkey's are the species. Cats and dogs aren't. A dog can mate with a Wolf and create pups, but a dog can't mate with a cat any more than they can a human. You have to be the same species in order to mate and create babies. It's biological law

I've never heard anything soooo funny

It would never happen,for one the genitalia of a male dog could not get a cat prego,but the immunity of the female would 'see' the dogs sperm as 'unlawful invaders' so to speak and the females antibodies would kill the sperm.

Good joke though

Those puppies are gorgeous but they certainly don't come from that cat.I think the woman is kidding people or kidding herself

I'd suggest to the scientists in any doubt...have a paternity test

I must admit too..when I saw the nails of the puppies my jaw dropped a bit but then I remembered its impossible really........ by natural methods anyway.....who's to know if they're not a product of Genetic Engineering

I mean...really? What genetisist worth his salt would entertain such a crazy claim.

Unless it was one of his experiments???

Ahem, the Jedi knight one is sorta true though. Every census loads of people put Jedi Knight down as their religion, since if enough people do it it has to be recognised as an official UK religion. They may have succeeded last time, I can't remember, but they aren't the 4th most practised religion I know that for sure
puppykits would be cute though

I saw that they say that scientist are looking into it. I believe that it is a story but thats as far as I believe im sure the scientist will fiend however who knows.

I'm seriously wondering what type of Scientist would even HAVE to look into this. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE. It can't be done. It's a scientific law. It's a law of nature. There is NO WAY that 2 different species can mate a produce offspring.

If I were a scientist I would...Actually I wouldn't run tests, but simply print out something on the computer that only other scientists can "read" and then call this woman an idiot.

Then remind people that cats and dogs cannot breed. Just like humans and sheep...
