Mitten Paw by WDWParksGal Mitten Paw by WDWParksGal
Take a close look at the Paw on Lily... she is a "Mitten Paw" and has six toes. It took several tries this past fall to be able to get a clear picture of her paw to show. It is almost as if she has opposable thumbs! She is a Polydactyl cat.

It's insane how much this cat looks like my old one. Lily just got slightly more white on her face, the rest is just crazy alike.

I have seen other kitties on dA that look remarkably like my own kitties. Lily is a doll-baby. So very friendly and always up for a scritch! She belongs to my sister-in-law ~Fubelle and is one of a set of family members ~Fubelle has that were a litter from "momma kitty" :nod:

I guess such paws are not really troubles for her?
She looks almost exactly like mine cat :)
He can be really naughty sometimes.

Oddly enough, no, the paws don't seem to bother her. She loves to follow my daughter and I when we hike up the back hill where my daughter lives. She follows us everywhere we go!

She is adorable and so loving. When taking a walk, even hiking up in the woods behind my sister-in-law's house, she follows right along!

Those paws certainly are "different".... the first time I saw a Mitten-Paw many years ago I was floored as I had never seen a kitty with such paws before.

My sister-in-law has a couple kitties with those paws. I felt lucky to get this picture. Actually, I'm holding the side of the kitty's head while my daughter snapped the picture :camera: ~ the kitties just move SO fast it is hard to get a clear picture of them.

I wish! I can barely get my kitties to stay still long enough for a picture. Only when they are sleeping, so I have lots of pictures of them sleeping! :sleep:

My Hagrid loves getting pictures. He's a ham. But Weasley doesn't like them all that much so I have to catch him when he's just sitting otherwise he hides.

When I get the camera out to catch a cute kitty in the act of total cuteness, often they will just walk out and start sniffing the camera :giggle:

Leo's paws are wide! He is certainly a cutie! My sister told me years ago that cats with those types of paws were called "Mitten-Paws" since, of course, the paw actually looks like a person's mitten :wow:

Check This Mitten-Toe and see the additional information and a link about Mitten-Paws. My sister had a Mitten-Paw maybe twenty-years ago..... I had never seen one either until then! And now I have seen quite a few :nod:

I've already heard about polydactyl cats but I was wondering: does the toe has a claw to ? :?
Reply
:iconwdwparksgal:
WDWParksGal Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2010
Yes, this kitty actually has two claws that are fused together.... other Mitten-Paws I've seen have claws in their "extra" toe. It is really amazing.

I never heard of "Mitten Paw" before.

I think the extra toe adds charm and cuteness. :heart:

Here is information on Mitten Paws, which are Polydactyl Cats. They are really something to see in person ;)

Hmmn... I live on the East Coast!
And there's plenty of stray cats around where I live.

I won't get obsessive about it, but I'll observe strays a little closer from now on to see if I'm lucky enough to spot a polydactyl cat! :)

I have to admit that most of the Polydactyl cats I've ever seen have been rescues. You may, indeed come across a stray that is a Mitten Paw!
