Ellis cousin are here to dominate the world

Cat in China grows a pair of wings
Feline was born normal but developed appendages at age 1, family says

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a … cat?

A kitty in Chongqing, China, is getting some extra-special attention these days: The furry feline has developed wings! Though born looking completely normal, once the cat hit the age of 1, he began growing wing-shaped appendages on either side of his spine, the U.K.'s Daily Mail reports.

While some think the bony limbs may be a mutation of some kind — or even a Siamese twin growing inside the cat — others speculate it's a genetic change perhaps caused by chemicals ingested by the kitty's mother while she was pregnant.

They are here...

Ugh. Semi-cancerous growths coming out her back?
History celebrates the battlefields whereon we meet our death, but scorns to speak of the plowed fields whereby we thrive; it knows the names of kings’ bastards but cannot tell us the origin of wheat. This is the way of human folly. --- Henry Fabre

There've actually been multiple cases discovered - all, oddly enough, in China - since the original one reported here. As far as I know, nobody's really examined one of these winged cats carefully yet - they're sort of giving them "white buffalo" style reverence.
How could a plan this awesome possibly fail?
