There has been talk of engineering primates to be more human like, with an interest in creating such hybrids going back to the days of Ilya Ivanovich Ivanov. And now, the first actual steps towards this have been scientifically achieved.
“A group of monkeys were found to have “human-like” brain development, including faster reactions and better memories, after a joint Sino-American team of researchers spliced a human gene into their genetic makeup.
“Researchers from the Kunming Institute of Zoology at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), and the University of North Carolina in the United States modified the genes of 11 monkeys (eight first-generation and three second-generation) with the addition of copies of the human gene MCPH1.
“Microcephalin (MCPH1) is a key factor in our brain development and, in particular, eventual brain size. Mutations in the gene can lead to the developmental disorder microcephaly, which is characterized by a tiny brain.”
Obviously, in order to make kemonomimi girls, including catgirls of course, fit for domestic ownership, it is necessary that they have an intelligence level above that of a Kzinrretti.
After all, who wouldn’t want a clever catgirl like this:
