South Korean Man Claims His Dog Gave Birth to a Kitten

Maybe our wildest dreams can come true after all. According to the (U.K.) Daily Mail, Jeong Pyong-bong of South Korea believes that his dog gave birth to a kitten along with her litter of puppies.

While this seems too good to be real, Jeong is claiming that it is a legitimate miracle. To back up his story, the owner of the dog and her unusual new brood is sharing pictures of the kitten hanging out with her canine siblings.


Jeong said that originally he was skeptical about the birth, thinking that his canine's newborn just resembled a cat. Once the baby started meowing, Jeong started believing. Now, this not-so-normal puppy has become a local celebrity, with villagers constantly stopping by to visit the kitten and her dog mother.

The owner thinks that the bizarre birth was the result of his dog's curiosity. Jeong said that some nights his dog would leave the house and would be gone for the entire evening. He believes it was a night like this that his dog got into some shenanigans with a stray cat.

Jeong may have convinced himself and locals, but scientists are not impressed. Animal professionals are standing by the fact that births like this are genetically impossible, due to the differences in dog and cat DNA chromosomes. This is not the first time the science community has been presented with claims of opposite births. Researchers continue to believe the story is some kind of hoax, just like the others preceding it.

It is a crock, this guy is just trying to get some attention because he think everyone is as stupid as he is. It is biologically impossible for a dog to give birth to a cat or any other species. This guy needs and education, maybe he can come to the U.S.. to get a free education, housing and food stamps and welfare handed to him.

No, I can not believe this, it is a lot of Bull. The kitten is probrably a stray and just feeding from the dog.

I brought home two Angora kittens and one night when the all white female kitten went into heat the all black male kitten tried to have sex with the all white female kitten, the next day the older blonde tabby cat tried to hump her and the next night my male Westie dog tried to have sex with her. The next day I had her spayed!!!!

Is this man a complete imbecile???? The kitten had a cat mother.....duh! But it's not uncommon for newly nursing dog Moms to play wet nurse to stray kittens. My Siberian Husky nursed several stray kitties during her Mommy days.

It is physiologically impossible for a dog to give birth to a cat. They don't have the same genes or blood type. The giveaway is all the puppies are normal, but only a complete kitten is totally out of place. The mother dog may nurse the kitten but she DID NOT give birth to it

I think there was a cat giving birth in the same barn or shed or garage on the same night or day and it accidentally dropped one of its kittens at or very near the spot where the dog was giving birth. The dog then thought the newborn kitten was one of her own litter.
