Polydactyl!? What is that?!

Cats normally have 18 toes, 5 toes on both front and 4 on the back paws. Some cats have a genetic abnormality that can be passed down from parents. It’s called Polydactylism. Ernest Hemingway was a big fan of these kitties, giving them the name “Hemingway’s Cats.” This little black kitten has a total of 32 toes! She has found her forever home already but we wanted to share and educate you on the feline anomaly. It’s quite unique and gives this kitten more character than we thought possible for such a tiny critter. She’s adventurous and fears nothing.
