Polydactyl cats have a special charm that cat lovers can’t resist. Who could blame them? Cats with extra toes on their paws are just too adorable! Meet Yeti, a curly-eared ginger tabby born in April 2021 with an abundance of toes. As a large breed, he’s not done growing yet. Known for their lovable personalities, curly ears, and short tails, these gentle giants of the cat world are simply irresistible. With all these traits plus those extra toes, Yeti is sure to melt any cat lover’s heart!
What is the origin of Yeti’s name and what kind of personality does he have? Well, Yeti was actually named after the infamous abominable snowman, a legendary creature known for its immense size, white fur and resemblance to Bigfoot. As for his personality, Yeti is a confident and highly intelligent pet who loves to cuddle and be mischievous. He’s the kind of furry friend who’ll keep you on your toes! And when he’s not causing chaos, Yeti enjoys spending time with his older tabby cat brother, Mac, and watching his crested gecko housemate, Sniper, in her habitat.
What makes Yeti unique and worth knowing about? Well, for starters, he’s a Highland Lynx breed of cat with an interesting physical feature- polydactylism. This means that he has an abnormal number of toes, totaling up to 23 on all four paws! Furthermore, Yeti’s ears curl backward and he has a tiny nub of a tail. As if these features weren’t enough to make him stand out, he is also a large breed cat that can grow to be over 20 pounds. A big shoutout goes to Yeti’s owner, Kelly, for allowing us to share his story and adorable pictures on Cattitude Daily.
