As the world slowly learns to come to terms with the countless new rules imposed upon it of genderbending, an even newer and potentially more controversial consequence has raised its ugly head - involving a cat and a dog!
In what has been termed 'Specie-swapping', Suki, the cat, and Jack, a Labrador, both from Swindon in Wiltshire, have opted to 'transition', and confuse their owners. Suki has assumed the status of being a dog, whilst Jack is acting like a cat.
Suki has given up drinking milk from a saucer as she used to do, and has also booted the habit of playing with string. Instead, she has taken up the unlikely hobby of chasing postmen and milkmen, and giving their ankles a nasty nip if she can.
Suki can also be seen carrying a bone around.
Jack, meanwhile, has taken to drinking Suki's milk from her saucer, and endlessly rolling her ball of wool around. He eats fish, has become something of an expert at climbing trees, and has managed to catch and kill several birds and mice.
He's also started to miaow, whilst Suki is undergoing training from Jack to bark.
The pair can regularly be seen in their neighbourhood carrying out each other's business.
Their owners don't know quite what to make of it. Jack's master, Matt Smith, said:
"It's mystifying! Jack's now started burying his turds!"
