Spike the Cat Who Has Thumbs and Extra Toes


Spike came to his foster home along with his three other siblings. They were in need of their forever homes. William H. and his wife took them into their foster home. They have fostered hundreds of kittens, but Spike is one of those that just steals your heart instantly. One thing that sets him apart from the litter is his big adorable mittens. Spike has extra toes on each of his feet which makes him quite dexterous with toys and other things.

“Spike is polydactyl which means that he has extra toes. It looks like he has little thumbs on his front paws,” said William H. With cute mittens like his, it is no surprise that he was the first to be adopted. He is happy for the second chance he was given and now sharing his polydactyl fun and antics with his forever family.

    My Dougie has extra toes and he is adorable also. I knew what polydactyl was but had never seen one until he just appeared at my house last fall. He will forever my little fat footed baby!

    Two of Spike’s littermates also were polydactyl. His brother, Turbo, may have had bigger feet. His sister, DeeDee, was polydactyl but it was often hard to see her extra toes because of her calico coloring. His brother, Dynamo was the only one who was not polydactyl. They were great kittens to photograph.
