Did a cat give birth to a Chihuahua? One owner claims so

Did a cat give birth to a Chihuahua? One owner claims so

We often come across some strange news stories, here at Over60 – especially when we’re dealing with animals – but this one may just take the cake. A man in China is claiming his cat gave birth to a Chihuahua puppy.

Seventy-four-year-old Jia Weinuan says that he personally delivered the litter of five animals from his three-year-old American Shorthair, Niuniu. The first of the babies was the “Chihuahua”, while the other four appear to be regular cats. This was Niuniu’s fifth litter of kittens.

The “Chihuahua” has become increasingly dog-like in its appearance since birth, with only its paws giving any hint that it may not be what it seems. All four of its siblings have been adopted, but no one wants the “Chihuahua”, who makes a quiet barking sound, rather than the quiet mewling one would expect from kittens.
