Furry Friend Fact Friday

Guest Blogger: Christine Line, Animal Friends Communications Team

Did you know that some of the cats we take in have more than the usual number of toes on one or more of their paws? That means they're 'polydactyl cats.' Felines normally have a total of 18 toes, with five toes on each front paw and four on each back paw. But polydactyl cats can have six, seven, or even more!

The fact that a cat has too many toes is not life-threatening, and it normally doesn't affect their mobility at all. It just means you'll own a kitty that is unique! Extra digits? Just one more reason to stop in at Animal Friends today and find an adoptable feline to call your own.
