Polydactyl Maine Coon

Our Sire Vader is a Polydactyl Maine Coon. A polydactyl cat has a congenital physical anomaly called polydactyly (or polydactylism, also know as hyperdactyly), which causes the cat to be born with more than the usual number of toes on one or more of its paws.

Normal cats have a total of 18 toes, with fives toes on each fore paw, and four toes on each hind paw; polydactyl cats may have as many as nine digits on their front or hind paws. Both Jake, a Canadian polydactyl cat, and Paws, an American polydactyl cat, were recognized by Guinness World Records as having the highest number of toes on a cat, 28. Various combinations of anywhere from four to seven toes per paw are common. Polydactyly is most commonly found on the front paws only; it is rare for a cat to have polydactyl hind paws only, and polydactyly of all four paws is even less common.

We are hoping to produce Polydactly kittens in late 2024 with our sire Vader!  Stay tuned!
