CATS and otters are the same animal.
Researchers at the Institute for Studies found that rather than being a distinct species, otters were merely bedraggled cats with an unusually strong fish drive.
Professor Henry Brubaker said: Contrary to popular belief, cats love water because it is full of fish.
When they emerge they look more muscular because their coats are slicked down, and also their pointy ears appear more stubby because they are mostly fur.
When humans first saw a really wet cat they were like what the fuck is that and gave it another name.
There are far fewer species than most people think. For example, bears are really just large fat dogs and worms are obviously a puny type of albino snake.
