We got Mittens and her 2 sisters, Twinkletoes and Padfoot, 8 years ago when they were kittens. we didnt realise they had extra toes until a few days later. Unfortunately Twinkletoes and Padfoot were hit by a car when they were 2yrs old. Mittens is a very strong personality and has quickly put our dog in her place. Mittens runs the show and everyone loves her extra toes which make her look as though she is wearing mittens!!
We love her very much.

I quite believe the dog now knows its place...

LOL - I can imagine how Mittens told the dog in no uncertain terms who is the Boss. (Well, we cat-people always know the dog never really has a chance...)

How sad that the other cats perished... But Mittens stays with you and is such a joy I am sure :) Who could resist all those extra toes, after all?
