Cat Wings

When cyber bullies, pre-menstrual syndrome and a killer hangover get the Cat Lady of Parkdale down in the dumps, she tries to think up various new cat word combinations to google image search to give her some much needed comfort.  This morning, still mangled from the stupid amount of vodka i consumed last night due to party nerves, I thought of CAT WINGS, and was overwhelmingly happy-fied by the amazing results this new search yielded.

My mom used to read Emmy and I the Cat Wings books by fellow space-lez Ursula K LeGuin when we were little!  They were the best!

When I finally moved out of my folks house I took this book and propped it up on my make-up stand to celebrate my new-found independence.  It is adorable.  

But the best part of my search was that I discovered that cat wings really do exist!!!!!!

WHAAAAT?!?!  Who's an angel-cat?  
Kitties "began sprouting bumps on their backs, which later turned into wing-like growths, during a recent spell of hot weather in China's Sichuan province."

"One cat owner, known only as Feng, claims her cat Tom's wings are a result of stress after he was 'harassed' by females looking to mate.
'At first, they were just two bumps, but they started to grow quickly, and after a month there were two wings,' she told Huashang News. 'Many female cats in heat came to harass him, and then the wings started to grow.'" 

Poor Tom!!!  It's hard out there for a pimp.  Now he can just fly far far away when the overly aggressive girl cats stress him out by demanding commitment too early in the relationship!

I guess too many girl cats were tryina mack on this angel kitten too, and who could blame them?  Cat wings pictured with a human who is almost as adorable.

  1. i hate to say this, but, unless i've missed something, ursuala k leguin (one of my all-time favourite authors and the subject of one of my major term papers and presentations for philosophy) is actually married to a man, and presumably happy that way (i'd like to think, considering her philosophies on gender, that she'd be openly out if she were gay..)

    also, i have to admit that i kind of hope that my cats will pester each other enough to cause a sprouting of wings...
