Normally Alison is in charge of the Mercury's "Cat Beat." However, I know if I passed this video on to her, there's no way in a billion years she'd post it. IT'S THAT DISTURBING.

Ladies and gentlemen, please say hello to the TWISTY CATS. Cats that have been bred to have inverted elbows -- on the flip-side, even though they walk around on floppy stumps, they're still ADORABLE. So there's that.

Anyway, this video (originally shown on Animal Planet's Weird, True and Freaky) is going to freak your shit out -- SO BE WARNED. And don't kill the messenger. I didn't breed the cats to look like this. And besides, isn't taking care of this sort of problem Barack Obama's job?
