Tip – 8- Can I give my sick or injured cat an Aspirin or painkiller?

What is a Polydactyl?
A polydactyl is a cat that is born with extra toes on one or more feet (normal is 4 toes on front feet plus the dew claw, and 4 toes on back feet).
 
Where did this trait originate?
Although there are many stories on where this trait began, the truth is - no one really knows.  We do know, however, that this is a dominate trait, so a poly cat can pass it on to his or her kittens even if the other parent is not a poly.
 
I had never heard of Polydactyl Cats until a moma stray cat came up to our home in June and had two kittens with her. We noticed right away their unusual toes and very long tails. My aunt looked it up online were we found Polys & Purrs - Home and realized what kind of special breed we have came upon.
 
When the moma cat (Mitsy) came in heat we found the father to our kittens, who is also a polydactyl. So our two kittens are full long-tailed polys, and mitsy just recently gave birth to four more full poly kittens about three weeks ago. I do not have pictures of the young kittens yet but i do have pictures of Mitsy and the oldest two, Tinkerbell & Teddy Bear.
 
Polys & Purrs is a great site to learning more about Poly Cats. I am going to try to make a better site with more information and more pictures.
