Hemingway cats, or polydactyl cats are cats that are born with extra toes. some of them have up to 7 toes on each paw. polydactyl being the scientific name, poly meaning multiple, and dactyl meaning finger. most cats have 18 toes polydactyl cats can have up to 28! they are commonly called Hemingway cats though because Nobel Prize winner Earnest Hemingway had an affinity for these cats and his house now belongs to 50 of his cats, or probably actually his cats descendants by now.
i think they are adorable, some people are weirded out by them.
what's your opinion?
