green cats: strange truth or urban myth?

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

according to online reports, in several different languages, coming from various sources around the world, green cats have sprung from the modern gene pool.

these reports claim that the first green cat was discovered in denmark in 1995. citing the increased amount of copper element in the cat’s diet (which the article says is abundant in that part of the world) as responsible for the genetic mutation, this unusual cat (named Miss Greeny by its owner, i think… much like the philippines’ Whitey, Blacky and Browny dogs) gave birth to a litter of even more green kittens.

the webpages containing these articles have more photos of green cats: tabby, calico, solid, long hair, short hair. they claim these images weren’t photoshopped at all, as some of us might surmise. given that, either the descendants of Miss Greeny have gone forth and multiplied or some cat fanciers have dabbled with genetics to develop green cats as a regular showbench species. there was even a statement about a fancier wanting to develop green-point siamese cats…

how true is it, i wonder???

    Go visit the site that owns the photograph you are using and find out.
    Genetics of Green

    “Interested in the green gene or in green cats? The Danish green kitten was real, but was due to copper contamination in local water and her colour was only temporary. For a green breed of cat, I’m afraid you’ll have to wait for genetic mutation to catch up with imagination. Happy April Fools Day from Moggycat & !
    Not Photoshopped? That’s right – none of these photos used Photoshop (Trademark).”
