A group of eight kitties were rescued by the Cats Protection Birmingham Adoption Centre in July. When the rescue workers inspected the kitties, they discovered that almost all of them had extra toes on their paws.

“A group of cats was recently abandoned at our Birmingham Adoption Centre. Two female adults were accompanied by six eight-week-old kittens, several of which were showing signs of mild cat flu, plus eye infections. All were seen and treated by a vet and have now been nursed back to health,” via Cats Protection blog.

“The extraordinary thing is that with the exception of two kittens, all the cats have extra toes! They have therefore been dubbed ‘the Polydactyl family’.”

Meet the Polydactyl family!

Meet Toes. This adorable little guy has many many digits on his big paws. How many toes do you count?

Toes was taken in by Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association. “We knew we could find a home for this special guy, and we did within a day! He has been adopted by a lovely couple who have other rescue cats. The cats will no doubt love to chase this little guy and all his many toes around and we know he will have a great life with this family,” said Morgan of VOKRA.

Meet Izzy, a lovely kitty with extra toes and thumbs. She had a rough beginning, but a second chance has made all the difference in her life.

“Izzy was found by a friend of mine at Point Isabel Regional Shoreline. It is a dog park. She was found by the water behind a dumpster, pressed against a rock. Her eyes were crusty and infected. My friend was able to grab her and took her in…once I saw her, I didn’t think I could resist,” said Ellen S. who adopted Izzy into her home with many furry friends. “One of my dogs absolutely loves Izzy.” Her name is  Oki and they are totally inseparable.

Meet Daniel! He has two extra toes on each foot, for a total of 26 toes, which is only two shy of the world record. Amy Rowell from Milwaukee Animal Rescue Center, went to animal control to pick up another cat, when Daniel put his paws through a cage and hit her head.

“He was very clearly saying I need to be rescued, I’d like to be your friend, please pay attention to me,” said Amy.
