'Half-cat' image circulates the web

A bizarre image allegedly found on Google Street View has become an Internet phenomenon.

The half-cat went viral after appearing online and has since become a hot topic. Rumors suggested that the picture had been taken by one of Google's Street View cars in an otherwise unremarkable suburban neighborhood. Unsurprisingly however it didn't take long for the image to be debunked.

As it turns out, the eponymous feline wasn't found on Google Street View at all but was instead uploaded by a Imgur user. Named Thumbelina, the cat is just a run-of-the-mill pet from Canada combined with a healthy dose of Photoshop.

"Was it a cat species as yet unknown to science, or some kind of mutant beast from another dimension? We're talking about the mystifying half-cat that had certain Internet-heads shaking in wonderment earlier today after allegedly being randomly captured by Google Street View."

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.

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? .

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 . Is that Blackie Lawless ?
