    No, but I have seen rabbits TRY to mate with cats to hilarious results.
    The genome is very different, more diverse than chimps to humans, even.

    That's a cat with a bobbed tail.
    Rabbits are in the Leporidae family, cats are Felid family.
    Rabbits are Prey animals, with eyes on either side of its head. They are the family that cats eat and were they smaller, cats would undoubtedly see only food hopping around. The only reason domestic cats don't tend to eat rabbits as that as prey, they are still too much for them.
    Cats are voracious predators, with eyes-front binocular vision.
    Both are pretty specialized to their environment and lifestyle but a major point is just how specialized a rabbits digestive system is. It is so sensitive in fact, that for a rabbit to consume meat can kill the rabbit.

    Like the Jackalope, yeti, chupacabra and the like, there will be many photos and videos purporting to be of a mythical creature (I once saw a picture claiming to be of a Young Joan Rivers) but they are usually doctored, misleadingly titled or outright deceptions.

    There are a few surprising (and beautiful) animal crossbreeds out there. Some produce offspring that are not sterile, as well.

    The Tigon picture is some kind of awesome.
