Remember when my daughter and I found a mummy on our property (in the foothills of Mount Charleston overlooking the Pahrump Valley in Nevada) on
Thanksgiving of 2003.
The mummy was examined by cryptobiologist and an anatomist. The main test was looking through a microscope at the mummy's dentition (teeth) to
determine its age. It turns out it is an ADULT cat of some kind, but is ONLY 5 and 1/2 inches long! It was also compared to a normal size mummified
cat that died inside the walls of a Stone Chapel and was there for over a hundred years. Both were dessicated (lost all their moisture content) but
our little mystery mummy was ONLY about the size of the other cats head!
A Doctor of Veterinary Medicine said, "One thing I observe in the photos is that the molar (last tooth) in the upper jaw is a *lot* bigger and more
developed than you usually see in modern domestic cats. But I guess that just deepens the mystery!"
Well I'm trying to get it put in the Guinness World Records for being the smallest Adult cat. I haven't heard back from Guinness yet, as it takes
