A Cambodian man claims his pet dog has given birth to a kitten.

Hundreds of people have flocked to Te Huot’s house after he claimed his 10-year-old pet Knou gave birth to a single grey kitten.

The owner said a forest monk who had visited him had told him that the dog had mated with a tiger.

Locals arrived at the home in Chhbar Ampou, a small village outside Phnom Penh, with incense to burn and donations for the dog and the tiny kitten.

Te Huot claims the birth is “a sign from the gods”.

According to Deutsche Presse-Agentur reports he said: “This animal cries like a cat, and its face is like a cat, but its feet are bigger than a cat’s and look more like a dog’s feet.”
