Where can I find a cat with bunny ears?

Well, the fact is I would like to know where I can find a baby like this! If somebody knows, please tell me! (email address removed).

Editor's note:

I don't think you'll find an animal like this, Erik.

My preliminary research on this (after listening to my gut feeling) tells me that this is a manipluted image, called "kitty bitty bunny."

As far as I can tell, it was created as part of a photo effects contest and posted to worth1000.com. According to the "author's note," the entry was made from three different images taken from sxc.hu.

This photo took 1st place entry in "Sickening Cute 4."

There have been many reports and stories over the years about an animal that is a combination of a cat and a rabbit. Sometimes referred to as a "cabbit," to my knowledge no creature like this exists or could exist. Cat and rabbit are too far apart in DNA.

Perhaps genetic engineering will get to that point some day, but I hope not.

What is manipulated? Who edits the editor?

Editor's note: To answer your questions...

Q. What is manipulated?

A. If you click the link I included above to show the (apparent) source of the image, you'll see that the post on Worth1000 indicates that this photo was created from 3 different images.

That's sometimes referred to as "image manipulation." Photoshop (or use the image manipulation software of your choice) a picture of a bunny, a cat, and a hand, and you've got a contest entry.

The original question was about finding a creature like the one in the photo. All the information I have tells me that it doesn't exist. This is simply a work of art.

Q. Who edits the editor?

A. Visitors like you keep the editor (me) in check. Other than that, I am self-editing.

I hope that helps clarify.
