Drudge posted a cat from NZ with 27 toes. It got me thinking that Catawumpous and I had missed our 15 minutes of fame.

She won't let me count her toes, but from my cursory census I think she fell short. Close, must be 23 or 25, but short.

Fun story. It's a common genetic aberation here on the New England coast. Favored by ship keepers, because they really are fierce mousers with that catcher's mitt up forward. And, I think I'm there, they are traditionally considered the familiars of wizards and witches.
