My boys. Here's Zeke (at the top) and Bucky. Bucky is about 10 months old and Zeke is right at 6 months. Got Bucky from my mom to keep me company, then had to get Zeke to keep Bucky company. Bucky is a bob tail and polydactyl. He has 6 toes and claws on each foot. He also has an extra claw between his normal toes and his "thumb" toe on one of his front feet. A lot of the barn cats out at our farm, mom says it's a perfectly natural occurance, but I stay away from the well water just in case. :)

whoa!!!!!!!!

You know 1865, down in Key West Florida at Hemmingway's house they keep the ancestors of Hemmingway's original 6 toed cat there. The "normal" kittens are spayed and neutered where the 6 toed cats are allowed to breed with the other 6 toed cats to keep that trait going. All the cats litters are cataloged and taken care of very well.

Hemmingway left it in his will to have these cats taken care of very well and there is full time people who feed them, stay at the house with them, and they have the best vet care and total run of the place.

With that many cats I was pleasntly surprised to see it was clean and tidy. I never smelled a dirty cat box when I was there. (with the warm weather there I think the cats all go outside to do their thing)

More about the cats and the house here: (there is a link about the cats)
