    My wife took these of our cat Cali, who has four (two regular, two mini) paws on the front. Polydactal(sp) is the term I believe.

    You know Steve......

    Down in Keywest, FL the Hemmingway house has a ton of those multi-toed cats. Hemmingway had one and so they have bred that line out.......the normal toed cats are spayed and neutered and the kittens who are born with many toes are allowed to breed in hopes of keeping the line alive. When I visited the house there was something like 60 cats there, and Hemmingway had it in his will to have those cats cared for.....there is a staff that takes care of them, feeds them, and they have their own vets......
