A cat with 28 toes!

How neat is that!??

Did you also know that cats with extra toes are called "Hemingways"? after the famous author? All of the cats in his estate (and are still there) have the genetic defect of having extra toes.

The correct term for a cat with extra toes is "polydactyl".

I have some friends who are owned by a whole family of extra-toed cats. They're gorgeous, and the extra toes don't detract from that at all, or seem to bother them in any way. I think it's kind of cute.
