Celebrate the Toes!

Today we would like to celebrate all the cute little toesies especially the extra digits. Spike was born with two extra toes on his front paws and one extra on his back paws. Turbo has two extra thumbs that give him the extra dexterity. Nothing is impawsible for these little guys. With those extra toes, they might just be able to change the world.

Spike came from a litter of three homeless kittens, and all of them were little Hemingways. It took less than a week for them to find loving homes.

Turbo came to his foster home as a homeless little kitten, but his extra toes pointed him to a family that love him and a big Maine Coon cat who became his best forever friend. Who can possibly resist those toes that always point towards joy and happiness.

Let’s celebrate our furry friends toes today. Send in a photo of your kitty’s toes or paws, we will feature it in our Love Meow gallery :).

    Ohhhh those toes, dont'e we just love them! It gives kitties such a charm. I had a female calicot and her too had two sets like Turbo.

    Love those pictures. So cute and don't they just appear to have so much personality????

    We have Emmy, 4 1/2 year old dilute tortie. She has 1 extra toe on 3 of her paws and 2 extra on her left front. Yes she looks like she has thumbs! I will say that they give her terrific grip when she goes flying round the house like a whirling dervish! She frequently reaches up for a 'hi-five' greeting… looks so cute!

    We got her from a no-kill shelter after she had been left in a box outside a local pet store. She definitely captured our hearts.

    I feel amazed when I see histories like these. Kittens are always showing us that they have more than anyone can think to give. I have three little balls of fur, and if I could, I would pick more from the streets, and give them a warm and lovely home!

    Actually Turbo and Spike are brothers. They had a third brother named Dynamo, a black and white kitten that was not polydactyl. Their sister was a calico who was also polydactyl. I could provide more photographs if requested. Earlier that year we had in foster care a polydactyl mother cat with 6 polydactyl kittens.
