The other day I examined Poe's back paws and discovered we had miscounted the toes. The right foot had five, but the left had SIX, making a total of 23 toes on the little guy. These little beans are pretty sweet -- take a look!
After this discovery, I examined Marigold again, too, and confirmed she still has 22 -- one extra toe on each paw.
The way the extra toes are positioned, it doesn't seem as though they will cause the kittens trouble as they grow. Their parents will just have to be sure to keep the nails trimmed -- especially those toes between the "thumb" and "index finger" on the front paws.
I just adore their giant kitten mitts. It's hilarious to watch them bat things around and paw at each other with them -- especially while they're fumbling around in this clumsy kitten phase.
