"Cat allegedly gives birth to dog-like offspring"

Ok, so it's not exactly the end of the world as we know it. I have to wonder what's next; will a swan and a sow soon be matched to produce a flying pig after this development.
The above is apparently a Brazilian student's cat, Mimi, with what her owner claims are Mimi's own kitten/pups.
Anyway, the story goes that three months after mating with a neighbour's dog, six of these chaps popped out, half of which died soon after birth. Interestingly, those three had cat-like features. Of course, this could just be a delightful hoax -- so I'll keep an eye on what the geneticist testing the animals has to say about the matter.
