Cats and dogs united!

Yahoo (Reuters):

"Brazilian student Cassia Aparecida de Souza, 18, holds her cat Mimi together with what Cassia claims are Mimi's own offsprings born with dog traits last Friday, three months after mating with a neighbour's dog, in the southern Brazilian city of Passo Fundo, Rio Grande do Sul state, November 15, 2006. A geneticist from the Passo Fundo University plans to take blood samples from the animals to verify the claim by Cassia and her husband Rogerio that the puppies are part of Mimi's litter of six, of which the three that were born with cat features died soon after birth, leaving the surviving three dog-like offsprings.

Being a Digg reader, I thought that nothing could amaze me. But this one is one weird freakish thing. It's like a sign of the apocalypse.
What is this new hybrid species is going to be called anyway?
Catog? Dogat? Too many strange things.
I'm telling you, this is the beginning of the end.
Pigs will fly.

I for one, welcome our new Dog-Cat hybrid overlords.
(Yeah, finally I'm getting to know American geek culture through the Simpsons - season 9 and still going strong.)
