My cat Polly has 6 toes. :eek: I don't know if anybody else has a 6 toed cat, but I do. I only know tons and tons and tons of dogs who have 6 toes. Does your cat have 6 toes? :)

I don't have a polydactal kitty myself, but I've met several. There are quite a few living on the Florida estate of Ernest Hemmingway, because they were favorites of his.

PS- Cool that your polydactal is named "Polly!"

I seem to recall seeing a lot of COTD pictures of 6-toed kitties and a few in the chats....they always make me think they are wearing a baseball glove, or like they have little "hands"! too cute!

I have two cats (brother & sister)who have 6 toes on all four feet - Yankee (the male) looks like he has dog feet :D - Ali-Baba - her's look like a extra toe hanging out there - ;)

Maine Coon cats tend towards polydactyly, probably due to their size. At least they are gentle with all those claws! My in-laws had a very large orange and white DSH named Boobie that had six toes, used to literally "ride" intruding dogs out of their yard! LOL!

Love em - I once had a kitty named Yankee, too! But she was a girl. Her sister was named Doodle, they were born on the 4th of July!

How did your Yankee get his name?

Polly - now isn't that a perfect name for your 6-toed kitty. So fitting ;)

thanks for your posts. "Polly" is a funny name for her. I never noticed. I called her Polly because she likes birds! :eek:

I don't have any with 6 toes on each foot, but I have one with five toes on each foot, the fifth toe on each foot being a pronounced thumb. He walks slightly bulldog-style because of his large front feet, and if he gets mad that front thumb has a pretty wicked-sharp claw like a raptor.

lol Polly, good name.

My aunt had one one with six toes, named boots! but it was somewhat wild and ran away. I think her current Cat has six toes as well.

Davis Twins talking:

An old teacher of one of us has a cat with six toes. He lives on a farm now, retired with his wive and some horses/cats.

I personaly dont have any Polydactals but I volunteer for a Cat rescue group and have seen alot of them. I think they are the most loving cats. I also fostered a polydactal for 2 weeks before she got adopted. The people that adopted her wrote to me a year later to tell me that she was the best thing that ever happened to them. I have never seen a polydactal that wasnt sweet.

How cute! I don't think I've ever seen a polydactal kitty before, but I've heard about them here. Just one more toe to kiss!
