In years of research, scientists have never discovered, or been able to show us an example of the concept of "evolution". Now, this is sort of old (forgotten) news, but at the same time, it is still relatively new.
I, of course, am talking about winged cats. Winged cats are a phenomenon of "mutation”, which in essence is the core definition of evolution.
What appears to happen is that every cat in the world possibly carries a gene for wings. When two cats get together, the chance of their baby inheriting wings is like 0.0001%, roughly the same as winning the powerball.
But much like the lucky f#$%^$ that won the powerball, this will happen from time to time. According to science, mutation is intentional by nature, and if it is a "beneficial mutation”, the mutant will live and breed-- passing down that "good" mutated gene (in this case wings).
Since wings are certainly not a disadvantage, this gene could be isolated, and ones with a higher frequency should be bred together to make a new species of cat: the winged cat.
Although beta winged cats cannot fly with their wings, there is strong evidence leading us to believe that these wings are indeed functional. Even though they are covered with fur, the wings on the beta "winged cats" have a support structure that can, if properly developed a bit further in thickness, support the cat as it lifts into the air. The surface area noted on the wings as well as the ability to move (similar locomotion to the cat’s tail muscles) make the wings essentially created for flying…. Is that acoincidence?
If you think this is fiction, a myth, or wishful thinking, you should really reconsider living in a hole for the rest of your life, this is reality!
Just imagine, a world where winged domestic cats are a reality, imagine how cute winged kittens must be, and imagine what they can do!
There are hundreds of incidents of semi-popularized winged cats:
The second instance we have is that of a cat identified as either Bessy or Thomas. Although the name is unclear, it was born in the Bremley workhouse. Upon its demise, it was mummified and taken to state fares, scientific exhibitions and museums, where its validity was unquestionable. The cat was last seen in a local pub with a Mr. Clague, it then simply "vanishes" into history.
Going to 1976, S.Peter Dance mentioned a flying cat, about 4 feet long which had been displayed live at showings, carnivals, and events. The animal died in early 1976, and from then on was stuffed (ancient taxidermy). The owner of said cat had the animal recalled, where it escapes the clutches of history, never to be seen or heard from again. Peter Dance suggests no physical examination by professionals was ever in order.
In 1940, an American soldier in Ashford, England documented the existence of a winged cat, accordingly, this one had an unnatural form of this mutation, for it could "glide" short distances. This was well documented, but the man that documented it died before returning home.
1950, a Spanish man, and merchant made headline news when his cat, accompanied with two massive , fluffy wings appeared in the public media. This cat, later named "Angolina" would be the first reported winged cat in Spain.
In 1951, a somewhat bulky cat, imported from the Soviet Union made its day view on the west end of the English heartland. Although never photographed, the locals made some sort of weird totem in its honor.
As early as 1868, a wealthy British gentleman had reported shooting what appeared to be a "winged cat" on his estate with a hunting rifle. The animal was confirmed to be neither a bat, bird, nor vulture. It was something abnormal, and possessed the power to fly. Although it was not feathered, it did indeed fly, not just glide-- or so claims lord Alexander Gibson. The pelt of the animal was later exhibited to other gentlemen of the East India trading company. At the conference of Asiatic Societies in Bombay, India, the dried pelt brought much speculation, but nobody ever questioned the validity of its existence, for it is well documented.
1949, about 50 miles west of Stockholm, a "winged cat" lunged at a child, his father fired one shot of an elephant rifle into the cat, killing it. The cat is infamous for its 23 inch (58.42cm) wingspan. The animal was never scientifically examined, but it appears to have been fully developed, and capable of flight. It was significantly larger than a house cat, perhaps the size of an adult bobcat, or cheetah.
1951, a winged cat was documented at an exhibit in London, UK. Accordingly, it had been "a stray" which was abandoned by it's owner. The cat was taken in by a local family, they even took a picture for us :D
1966, a Canadian farmer in the outskirts of urban Ontario shot a 14 inch (35.56 cm) winged cat that was attacking his chickens. A veterinarian did a thorough examination of the cadaver cat, and his findings were that the wings were "extensions of the cat's backbone, covered in fur, and laced in skin" these joins were articulate, therefore gliding on them is probably natural. The cat’s body was also infested with the rabies virus, probably why it attacked multiple chickens without being provoked.
1894, a cat with wings was present in Bridgewater, England. This species had wings resembling that of a "young waterfowl”, the cat was later stolen by burglars, and accordingly shed its wings in fear.
1897, a winged cat in Derbyshire, England was reported to have used its wings to outrun a man seeking to kill it for pleasure (some kind of bastard). The cat was noted to be four to ten times faster than average, using the wings to give itself some sort of boost. There is no evidence to suggest that this specimen could have ever lifted off the ground.
1899, another Londoner fully detailed the birth of an alpha winged kitten. The kitten was born with wings resembling those of "a mature chicken", about 6 x 4 inches (Length,Width [disambiguation] ( ;,; ) ) (15.24 x 10.16 cm). Surgeons attempted to remove the wings, however, they were well articulated, and thus the kitten died of blood loss. As you can see, this well-formatted articulation says is that "the winged cat is literally a new species”, not just a cat with a mutated ligament.
1933, a winged cat in Oxford, England was placed behind bars to keep it from escaping, and to show the commoners of Oxford what a "winged cat" was. The specimen actually managed to (exact quote) "fly over the bars, and towards the sun, escaping"- oxford directory of stolen and escaped animals.
1936, in lower Scotland, a cat about the same size, shape color and wing size as the London cat of 1899 was found. This one was left "as is" -thank god-. And would later simply "disappear" into the abyss of documented history books.
The conclusion? Winged cats might just be a hybridized or emerging species of animal, but they are continuously popping up around the world. Perhaps one day we will be lucky enough to see one in person.
