14 Pictures Of Polydactyl Cat’s Paws That Make Them More Pawsome

Cat’s paws are the cutest.

Even if I wasn’t a huge and of cats, I would still love to see pictures of cat paws. But since I do absolutely adore kitties, their paws just make my heart melt. Don’t get me wrong, I Understand that they are deadly and they can be sued as weapons but I can’t help it that I always want to grab the paw and press the tiny toe beans. Mind you, I usually get a few scratches on my arms but I think it is totally worth it at the end of the day.


Jokes aside, for all the people who love cats and especially their paws, then they have come to the right place because we have a special treat for you today. We have pictures of cat paws but all of these cats are Polydactyl. What is that you may ask? Well, basically, they are born with a mutation that generally means they have more toe beans than other kitties. And while that may sound a bit disturbing, it is actually very adorable.

So just scroll below to take a look for yourself and enjoy the dopamine hit.

My Barney, my heart. He passed on a couple of years ago now. In all, he had 22 toes in total.

You might think that this is a rare thing but actually a lot of cats have this ‘issue’. And all of these cats are adorable. This is a genetic trait so it is usually because one of their parents had it or that the parents carried the mutation gene but didn’t have it themselves. Whatever the reason may be, it is harmless and does not negatively affect the cat’s health in any way. Some people even specifically breed cats with this gene so they can have polydactyl kittens so it is a sought-after trait for many people.
