Cat with extra toes

My 4 year old cat Kira is polydactyl, she has extra toes on her front and back paws.
How many of you also have a "bigfoot" cat? Just curious!

My Mr. Kitzer had extra toes. 6 on the front, 7 on the back. He recently crossed the bridge , but he was known for his toes...and his kung foo moves.

My grandmoms old cat had I think 3 or 4 extra toes on the front paws and an extra 2 or 3 on the back paws. She had 20+ toes total. She was a pretty calico kitty named Patches... I always found it neat she had 2 toes on her front feet that formed together to make a 'thumb' looking thing.

Wish I had a picture of her but I don't think I do :sad: not on my laptop atleast.

My mother's old cat also had too many toes - can't remember the number but as a kid I always loved that cat for being something special!
