As long as they have good balance then I don't care how many toes. I have seen Hemingway's home, or Cat House, I guess I didn't notice the Polydactyls. Interesting article.

Polydactic cats bring good luck to your household!! My Louis had enormous snowshoes and graced us with his presence for 16yrs. Can't wait for another!!
