Yes, I have, in fact, I've had 3 of them over the years. They have big feet, don't they?

I've seen them before. A lot of people think they are cool and specifically look to adopt them. They're usually called polydactyls, or sometimes Hemmingways. I've never had a cat, but I've had a couple guinea pigs before that had extra toes.

That's cool I never heard of guinea pigs having extra toes,but neither had I heard of cats either.I would have a guinea pig but the cats,dogs and rats are enough I think.

I have seen a cat with 7 toes before. This cat had the worlds biggest kitty feet. They were massive, with 7 toes. It was so cute though. Wish I could find the picture for you...too bad, it would be cool!.

Yes I have heard of this, I think that it is some sort deformation. They can be surgically removed.
