she is 2 years old and totally black with piercing green eyes.
Having said goodbye to 2 cats in the last 18 months this feels like a lovely happy thing for our family smile

LOVE Thumbalina!! She's beautiful, OP.

Aww she's beautiful. And look at those thumbs!

She's excellent. I love black cats - especially as most people don't and they languish in rescues.

Her thumbs are superb.

StrumpersPlunkett Sat 16-Aug-14 19:13:20

Polly short for Polydactyl the name o the condition that gives her extra digits
fwiw I really wanted thumbelina but DH said NO!!

Thumbs? You do realise a cat with thumbs probably could take over the the world shock She's gorgeous smile

IScreamForIceCream Sat 16-Aug-14 19:13:54

The medical latiny name for thumb is pollex, I think.

So - Polly?

IScreamForIceCream Sat 16-Aug-14 19:14:25

Ha - cross post. She is a differently-named Polly! That is amazing!

Polly is fabulous!

thecageisfull Sat 16-Aug-14 19:15:52

She's gorgeous. My cat has thumbs too and I have, rather morbidly, started wondering what it would be like to have a cat in the future with normal paws and not have people say 'fucking hell! Look at her feet!' when she climbs on them.
I even googled polydactyl breeders blush

fabulousfour Sat 16-Aug-14 19:16:26

Polly is fabulous. Love her.

StrumpersPlunkett Sat 16-Aug-14 19:18:44

Yay another thumbed cat... thecageisful are the rescue center totally right that it has NO implications on movement jumping etc..
