In New Zealand, was born a cat with extra toes

February 25 2007

In New Zealand, was born female with the 26-th fingers. The owners noticed something was wrong, but when they realized that the three-month kitten scratched much stronger than other cats. Note that in normal cats 18 toes - five on their hind legs and four on the front.

A cat named Extras, the owners say it is an excellent climber, runs very fast - in fact, may very well take care of themselves. Local veterinarians argue that the fear for Extra is not worth it "feature, but only very slightly." Its peculiarity is caused by harmless inherited genetic disorders - polydactyly.

Representatives of the Society for Protection of Animals also say that in polydactyl cats, there is nothing wrong - such animals may occasionally appear on the light. As for the rest of their body no abnormalities with regard to their nature, they are very calm, reports local agency Stuff.

Note that in ancient times cats whose paws abnormally many fingers were held in high esteem by the crews. In addition, it was thought these animals became darlings of witches and sorcerers.
