Global Warming Produces Kittens

This week the scientific community announced that Earth is entering a new Geologic Epoch. We have reportedly been in the "Holocene Epoch" for the last 11,500 years, but due largely to increased carbon dioxide output we are now entering into the Anthropocene Epoch. ("anthro" meaning "Human" + "-cene" meaning "new") An age that will usher in new weather patterns and dramatic global change. recently reported that global warming has produced a large unexpected increase in the number of kittens born worldwide.

Could heating the Earth be part of the cat's world domination plot?

Although the Chinese Zodiac names every twelfth year "The year of the Dog," could we be entering the Epoch of the Cat? (a "kitteh-cene" epoch?)
