I recall when I was about 10 reading about some "cabbits" that were born.  They were being sold by the owner but they looked so strange and I thought, how sad they will not know who/what they are because of their dual natures but I don't think they lived long.

All cabbits that I've read about were actually deformed cats.

Cats and Rabbits are so genetically different that basically the only thing they have in common is that they are placental mammals.

Cat = Class: Mammalia, Order: Carnivora, Family: Felidae, Genus: Felis, Species: F. catus
Rabbit = Class: Mammalia, Order: Lagomorpha, Family: Leporidae, Genus: Oryctolagus, Species: O. cuniculus

AFAIK, such a hybrid is not even possible in a forced fertilization labratory environment.

i wasn't sure what to make of it lol it looks funny and pretty damn cool and funny but i thought to myself that can't be real as in its more likely photo-shopped lol still that would be something to see and surprisingly too.if it was real it would maybe be a experiment by some scientist in labs maybe or it could be some mutation though as well.

Thea, I'm aware of the rules of genetics.  But it was in our local paper way back when.  Being 10 at the time I didn't ask how it could be possible.   It could have even be a hoax.  I have rewired to research out as am adult but found nothing.

It was in a paper called the Sun Press and there was one picture of a litter of 4 cabitts or so.  I remember the article because it's so bizarre.  The mother was the cat supposedly.

Something less than a cat, but also something more.

This is kinda lame. You can tell be observing it that the cat just happened to take a step with its other hind leg pointed straight when the photo was taken. Cats do this stretch when they've been laying a while. I really hope this is not mysterious to anyone.

:w00t: Perhaps you didnt read the article properly? Its the cats front legs only, the rest has been shopped. But does your cat do that clever stretch then? While hiding his ears too?

How the hell can it walk on two legs like that?

Lots of cats can walk on two legs. It's obvious these are deformities. Cats and rabbits cannot combine genetically ,as far as I know .
