A Hemingway Kitty~~A Pictorial Journal : Animal Anomalies Part 1

Happily introducing....Milo

It is now 10 weeks since Milo came to my house...He wonders why the mattress is in the dining room. It is the day for a new bedroom floor.

"Oh, well. I guess I will preen a little since I cannot play in the bedroom."

Just the sweetest face...I am so happy that he came to my house.

My little Milo lies right beside my laptop as I am composing...what a love bucket!!!

He is my muse  :)

Introducing....Ebony, Milo's Mama

Source

When I was not really in the market for a new pet, my grandson asked me if I would like to have the baby of his kitty, Ebony. Ebony by the way is solid white as you can see in the photograph.

Ebony has been his kitty for about 3 years now. She is a small kitty, so very soft and cuddly, and a bit mischievous. She was given to my grandson by a friend of the family who had visited the Keys and was able to adopt one of the Hemingway kitties.

Ebby as she is called has six toes on her front paws. Having that extra toe on each paw has not seemed to be a problem for her. As a matter of fact it seems to make it easier for her to bat things around.

When Ebony gave birth her little Milo inherited the extra toes and two of the toes are fused. He has five toes on both of her back feet as well.

Hemingway's cats

Ernest Hemingway was born in Illinois in 1899. He became one of the remarkable writers of the 20th century. His style lead his readers to find themselves involved in a story that would cause them to lose themselves in his work as they turned page after page.

Hemingway like some other writers who have mesmerized us with their writings was plagued by depression and health problems. Finally in 1961 his life ended at his own hand.

In Key West, Florida, the Hemingway home and museum is home to several dozen cats. Hemingway had been given a white, six-toed kitty, it is said, by a ship's captain. He named the kitty Snowball.

Many cats remain on Key West and some are descendants of the original six-toed kitty.

When we visited the Keys and the Museum, we were told that the cats were named by Hemingway after famous people and they try to continue that tradition today.

What is polydactylism?

Polydactyl or polydactylism has its origin from the Greek polus many + daktulos finger


Polydactylism is a birth defect characterized by extra fingers or toes. Usually, the fingers and toes are just small pieces of extra skin, but there are cases in which the bone structure is intact and the digits are completely functional.

Polydactyl or polydactylism has its origin from the Greek polus= many + daktulos= finger or digit.

Polydactylism occurs in humans as well as animals. It may mean an extra finger or thumb which is not physical harmful to the person. Often however the parents opt to have them removed when the child is very young.

This anomaly occurs also in cats, dogs, pigs, fowl, and some other animals.


Do you have a polycactyl kitty or other pet which display this characterisitic?

  • No and I have never heard of this.
  • No but I know some people who have extra fingers.
  • Yes I do have a polydactyl pet.

Polydactyl kitties

The six-toed cats that are found at Hemingway's home and museum are known as polydactyl. They usually have six toes on their front paws and four on their back paws. Not all of the cats display the polydactyl feature but may carry the gene in their DNA.

Most of the cats displaying the trait have extra toes on the front but sometimes have them on their back feet but that is not nearly as common. They have been described by some as appearing to wear gloves; it looks like they have a little thumb. To me their little paws seem like almost like a little baseball glove that is flattened and can be used to bat things around quite well.

My little kitty is a Hemingway kitty. His Momma was a Hemingway kitty as was mentioned above.

Anomaly or not, he has already stolen my heart away.

A really good look at his paws....he did not really feel like posing...

Animal anomalies

Perhaps you have read about or seen other anomalies in animals. The cow with two heads, the cat with two heads, the dog with an extra leg, the sheep with one eye ---the list goes on and on.

A chicken with a foot where??

Years ago when I lived in Albany, Georgia, with my daughter and grandson, we lived on some acreage in the country. Next door lived a young man who had chickens and a few cows. Our properties were separated by fence which was easy enough for the chickens to maneuver themselves under and come visit.

We had a chihuahua at the time and he loved to run around in the yard chasing butterflies and dragonflies and anything else that moved even slightly.

Every day without fail the chickens came under the fence, not unlike the puppies in the heartwarming book, The Poky Little Puppy by Jeanette Sebring Lowrey. If you have not read that book, be sure to do so. You are never too old to enjoy the story of a Momma's love for her pups.

So back to the chicken and pup tale of mine. Sure enough one Thursday afternoon we were outside watching my grandson play in his pool when the chickens ambled onto the property looking for delicious morsels to fill their tummies.

Our little pup was sitting beside my daughter and me on our porch steps. Soon he spied the chickens and took off. He singled out one and chased around and around the house in hopes he would at last overtake and capture it. That never happened! As fast as the pup was, faster still was the chicken. We were laughing so hard that tears were rolling down our cheeks. It was like a mini-version of the Daytona 500.

After a bit, we walked out into the yard to get a closer look at these two critters engaged in a battle of wills. We both paused and just stared. We were seeing something we could not believe.

Out of the rear end of the chicken our pup was so furiously chasing was a lower part of a leg and a foot!! It did not seem to be causing a problem for the chicken, certainly not in impeding her movement in anyway.

We often wondered after that if that is why the pup was so interested in chasing that particular hen.

When I was growing up we had many chickens and none of them ever had such an anomaly.

Hi Peggy....Missing one of your felines...I can understand that. I had a Dusty ....and adored her. She left the planet 16 years ago...but she left her footprints on my heart...she was a tiny, feisty kitty who was determined to rule the roost...from day one. Love love loved her. My other kitties have helped fill the hole in my heart though. Milo is a love bunny...and so cute...he thanks me each time I fill his food plate....it is so cute. My outside kitty who is now 14 is as sweet as her name: Honeybee. And my pup who was adopted loves me too...how lucky I am ....love to hear of the precious pets of others, Peggy..thanks for sharing.

We are down to only having one cat now since we had to have Dusty put to sleep last year. Peaches is a sweetie. Regular paws...not polydactal. Our dog Skippy and Peaches are pals. We and our pets are all senior citizens...aging together as a family. :) Sending good thoughts and prayers your way!

Hello Patricia. I loved reading your article and seeing the photos. I was lucky enough to have had a double pawed kitty who gave birth to a triple pawed cat. They were the most lovable and gentle felines I have ever seen. Fragment (Fraggie for short) would take her triple-paw and cover my nose with it. If you felt her giant paw, you would think that she had been de-clawed. She had not been, but she was so gentle that neither I, nor anyone else in the house, had ever felt her claws, even when she was walking on us. Great work on this hub.

Great cute photos! I had heard about the polydactyl cats from reading about Hemingway. Milo is so cute on top of the tower with his face sideways on the pink top, so darn cute! We have three cats all the same color like Milo. I wrote a hubs about our three cats. They are not Polydactyl, but they are the same color. Great hubs and photos!

Your cat is adorable and those pictures are great. We had a feline visitor recently who became a regular at our house for a while. He looks like your Milo and even has the extra thumbs. My veterinarian was so taken with him that she adopted this cut little stray and named him Dr. Thumbs. He has free range of the Vet clinic and hangs out at her office and even sits in her chair.

Thanks for visiting again, moonlake.

I adore my Milo. He is all over me this morning as I just returned home after a five week absence while I was on a mini-vaca with my sister who came from Texas to visit.

My grandson took care of him for me which is a good thing as they love each other. He is indeed glad to have his "Momma" home.

He is so cute running and playing...what a joy.

It is certainly a possibility that it may be a new trend in animals but the polydactyl kitty that my baby is from came from Key West (his Momma did that is) and she was part of the Hemingway kitty clan.

Of course across time Hemingway's era was not really that long ago so emerging new traits in animals could have begun then.

then really lovely thing about my Milo is that he has gotten more precious every day. He loves his Momma (me) and 99% of the time he is nestled somewhere on me or by me or at least within the same room. I have not had an inside kitty for about 20 years so having him is such a lovely experience. He is so interested in exploring playing and living life. I am so glad he came to my house.

Your kitty is absolutely adorable in every way possible. I had no idea that animals can experience extra fingers or toes so this was a very interesting read for me.

I had a friend at high school who had an extra toe on each foot but they were also webbed. I think her parents opted out of surgery because it didn't seem to effect her in any way. If she was ever bullied about it she would always tell the bullies where they could stick their insults and that shut them up.

Just an aside thought, I wonder if extra fingers and toes are part of a new evolutionary trait in mammals? I'm sure there's been some research on it but I've never come across any.

Our feral cat Mama Kitty had some kittens that had extra toes. Your little kitten is so very cute! Interesting that there are a bunch of cats that have come from Hemingway. Obviously there was not a lot of spaying and neutering! Many votes up and pinning this to my Cats board. I can tell from the photos that your little Milo is brings lots of smiles and joy into your life. Nice!
