The cabbit pictured below isn’t really half cat and half rabbit, but Jay Leno read a “cabbits for sale” ad on the Tonight Show headlines segment that created a buzz around these cute critters.
Of course, the cabbit in the photo isn’t really a cat that’s half rabbit. Cabbits are actually either cats or rabbits bred to emphasize certain genetic traits or deformities.
