Mutilated Cats a Trend?

There Is a rumor of this man who takes baby kittens and sells them in Japan. These are not cute, ordinary kittens though and you would be surprised how they do look! This man gives them a muscle relaxer and then lets them develop trapped inside a glass bottle. Eventually the kitten takes the shape of the bottle and then at full growth the bottle is broken to have your Own personally shaped kitten. Isn't that horrible...anyways here's the link: http://www.bonsaikitten.com

I've heard a similar story years ago. Apparently there were stuffed animals that looked like cats or puppies creatures, but their fur was real. I think I even remember seeing this story on a news show. Now when ever I see the stuffed animals at flea markets and stuff I don't know what to believe, but the story behind them has definitely conviced me to be freaked out by them.

I looked this up, and apparently it turns out that the whole thing was a hoax pulled by some MIT students. That never really happened to cats, but they made the Bonsai Kitten website and got animal rights activists very angry. Here's the story, from Museum of Hoaxes: http://www.museumofhoaxes.com/pranks/bonsai.html

I also looked this up and found the following wired article, saying that it was a prank:

Aparently the student was trying to make fun of all of those crazy cat-obsessed people who love their cats like crazy. (despite cats sucking compared to dogs)
