    I do to. They just seem to have a very different attitude, and disposition then the normal run of the mill kitties.

    Cute kitty! Do you know why they have six toes? Is this normal or was this particular line of cats 'designed'? Very cute regardless.

    Cheers,

    I don't think that they were bread that way. i just think that it was deformity that stuck because it doesn't hinder the cats in any way. As far as I know... you can only have a tom that is a hemmingway pass on the trait. Pretty neat

    Hmmm, that would make it a sex-linked trait then. How is their disposition different, Aaron? Are both kitties black?
