Our Cat with the extra Claws (polydactyl )





This is Genevieve, the other barn cat. She is special because at her front feet she has two extra claws each. Look at the closeups! Isn't that cool? She reminds us a lot of our old cat 'Pueppi' that died two years ago. She has the same personality and even the same face! We are very happy with our barn cats Genevieve ("Jenny") and Groenemeyer ("Groenie")! They are so funny to watch and very loveable, too.
Das ist Genevieve, unsere andere Stallkatze. Sie ist etwas besonderes, denn sie hat an den Vorderfuessen zwei extra Krallen! Schaut euch die Vergroesserungen an! Ist das nicht 'cool'? Sie erinnert uns sehr an unsere alte Katze Pueppi, die vor 2 Jahren starb. Sie hat die gleiche Persoenlichkeit u hat das gleiche Gesicht! Wir sind sehr happy mit unseren Stallkatzen Genevieve ("Jenny") und Groenemeyer ("Groenie")! Es macht Spass sie zu beobachten u sie sind auch sehr anhaenglich.

This cat has such a beautiful face. That's very unusual about her claws. I guess she is extra special. Your cats sound like they are very nice to have around!

A seven-toed cat. My neighbor had a cat like that when we were kids. Do you think momma cats count their kittens toes when they are born?

Gudl said...

You are funny, Martha!!

Priscilla said...

That is pretty unusual!

I love the last picture of her!

Yes, she is the greatest cat, her and her brother. So loving, and she has the sweetest personality, a lot like Puppi....

Anika said...

our cat, Maxi has that too. They were pretty rare, but now they're getting pretty common... I wanna see a cat with all paws like that. That'd be cool.

Very cool! I have only ever seen one other cat that has that and it was only on one paw - your cat is very special and VERY cute too - they both are :)

Das sind sicher angeborene Wolfskrallen und gehören nicht dahin, hat duda auch eine,wird ihr demnä operativ entfernt.Stören die Tiere.
Erfreulich zu lesen wie happy ihr mit ihnen seit.Sind auch 2 süsse

Kitty said...

aw, she's very pretty.
I bet the cat gets a lot of good exercise.
You live in a lovely place. How green?

Twinville said...

Wow. Very rare!

Maybe she comes from the famous "Hemingway cats"? They are all Polydactyl and live on his sanctuary.

Great picture of Mel!

Nice cat.
In Finland they are black and white cats and called "laivakissa" (boat cat). I offered one to one of my nephew, it has just died after a long cat life of 18 years.
