Mythology is full of stories of winged cats. It’s easy to imagine why the concept of freedom loving felines combined with flight would appeal to storytellers.
As it happens winged cats are real. They’re not confined to mythology.
Sadly, among the few cases of winged cats recorded with enough detail the condition is often traced to “Cuteaneous Asthenia” or sometimes the mere impression of wings is created by longhair breeds with matted fur. In fact, in the UK the TV program “Animal Hospital” featured several cases of this.
