The audience at the 1945 International Science Consortium was stunned into silence when my great-grandfather, Schnapsidee von Genesplice, presented his thesis. The theme that year was Quadrupedal Temperature Change and he had stumbled upon an ingenious plan to keep tender paws warm and toasty.

These twisted kittens would never again lose their mittens, for they had been genetically altered to have woolly mitts where tiny paws should be! Their misshapen heads and a suspicious lack of any discernible noses or mouths shook fellow scientists to the core. Suddenly, panic broke out in the front row as the “cats” approached them, their crooked torsos being dragged along the stage by five stumpy legs. The marked absence of any tails was just too much to bear and convinced many that science was best left to the fiction writers.

    I think that I may have had one of these as a child–I looked at this and thought “I loooooooooooooove them!” It must be a reaction to a repressed memory!

    This appears to be the inspiration for the Oscar-nominated film ‘Gremlins’. Wouldn’t you agree?

    Actually, I think the kittens are kinda cute. But the mother disturbs me. What is that – a tabby/dachsie cross?

    I agree, the momma is truly the scary one. It looks like her one back leg is sprouting out of the other. Creepy!

    What were people eating to come up with this?

    Dear God… it really looks as if they are hauling themselves along the floor on their front leg-stumps towards the camera!
    I now lie on my bed at night with my eyes wide awake in fear…

    Notice the strange objects the two in the front have clasped between their ‘paws’. Are those severed human tongues?

    Now, who doesn’t adore pompom kitties?

  11. Kitt says:

    I have a couple of those. My grandmother used to make them for church sales.

    And people bought them.

    Thanks for the fun site!
