A Thai pet owner is convinced that her pet chihuahua – who she saw having his wicked way with her pet cat – has fathered offspring.
It is not known if they should be called “dats” or “cogs” or even “dittens” or “cuppies”.
Warunee, 30, in a village in Sakon Nakhon in Thailand’s north east said she had raised her one year and four month old chihuahua called Chaoguay and her Thai breed cat Lot Chong, 1, since birth.
Soon they struck up a close relationship and started going everywhere around her house together.
They were inseparable…literally.
One day she witnessed a bizarre “reverse coupling” before the dog and cat were parted from their romantic endeavors.
“I couldn’t believe it,” said Warunee, when Lot Chong fell pregnant. She didn’t believe it was possible for dogs and cats to have offspring at first but she said that her pets never got out to play the field..
They were home loving pets who were far more interested in each other than “playing away”.
Then came, for Warunee and the villagers at least, proof that dogs and cats could procreate.
Four animals were born that shared the colors of the feline and canine parents.
Then the definitive proof…..Warunee won the two digit lottery on October 16th with the numbers “15” – the birth had taken place the previous day.
Sanook thought they had better ask a vet for his opinion.
Wisut Ua-kingpetch said no way could a cat and a dog produce offspring. They were just two far apart on the evolutionary tree.
Some species could, he said, but not a Thai cat and a chihuahua – that would be taking Tex-Mex too far.
Thaivisa notes that some animals are given interesting names after successful matings – these include tiglons and ligers in the world of big cats and the interesting zebrass in the equine field.
