Cats populate the whole world. They can be found in every corner of any street in any town in the world. It's well known that cats have extra lives - but this video shows that they can also have extra toes.

A mom found a pregnant cat who was previously abused and left to die. Instead of leaving her in the streets, she decided to take the cat in her home and take care of her and her kittens. After a while, the cat gave birth to three adorable toyger kittens. Everyone was very happy because after all those sad moments, a bright one came in this momma cat’s life. The family that took care of this cute quartet noticed something strange with the tiny kitties. When they took a closer look, they noticed that the kittens were born with more toes than normal. In fact, one of them was born with 7 toes on each foot!

These cats are known as polydactyl cat, and they have a congenital physical anomaly called polydactyly that causes the cat to be born with more than the usual number of toes on one or more of its paws. Because of the larger number of toes they were rumored to be excellent mouse hunters, while their extra toes gave them better balance on ships that encountered rough waters. This might explain their widespread presence today predominantly in the United States, Canada, England, and Wales.

Even though this very special moggie has two extra toes on each paw, it does not cause any harmful health problems. Soon when they grow up, they will find happy homes.
