Cats are prone to polydactyly. What does this mean?
A polydactyl cat is a cat with a congenital physical anomaly called polydactyly (or polydactylism, also known as hyperdactyly), that causes the cat to be born with more than the usual number of toes on one or more of its paws. Cats with this genetically inherited trait are most commonly found along the East Coast of North America (in the United States and Canada) and in South West England and Wales.Cats, which possess such an anomaly, look really unusual, but, anyway, cat-lovers from all over the world are ready to pet such creatures and take care of them. Usually they don't even need any special care, except regular veterinary appointments.
