The Cat Girl Disease

CHINA – A Thai journalist went to China to cover a story about a Chinese girl, Li Chow Yuan, 6-years-old, known as the cat girl. Plagued by a strange disease, a light fur coat began growing on her body from her back to neck and arms to face.

The girl’s condition escalated very rapidly: four months ago, she only had a minor skin rash on her back… now she’s half-feline.

Li Yang, the cat girl’s father, stated that the doctor said the disease had been dormant in the girl since birth. The doctor also stated that her body will be covered in fur very soon and that the condition will be extremely difficult to cure.

The cat girl’s family is trying their best to gather funds to support her medical treatment.
