Cats with Wings in China

A recent post here shared a series of cat photos in Sichuan province (see here).  A reader has brought to my attention that it isn't the first time for cats in Sichuan to receive attention.

A couple of years ago there was a report of a cat in Sichuan that had sprouted wings.  Yes, cat wings.  You can find an article with photos of the winged cat here.  I now recall seeing this story when it first broke.  Later, there was a similar report out of nearby Chongqing (see here for photos of another winged cat).  For more general information on winged cats see here.

All I can say is I have yet to see any winged cats in Sichuan or anywhere else in China.  I'll let you know if I do, though.

For the time being, here's a photo of another Sichuan cat, this one outside a bookstore in Chengdu:

No wings on this cat


  1. The title implied that I would see cats with wings. I feel cheated. Cute cat though.

  2. Winged-cat photos can be found through the links above. I couldn't post the photos here due to copyright restrictions.
