Thumbs up cat

Ok so holy crap... that cat has a thumb.... apparently this is called a Polydactyl Cat.

Here is the info from the wikipedia entry

However in some cases polydactyly appears to improve the dexterity of the animal. For example, a common variation with six toes on the front paws, with two opposing digits on each (comparable in use to human thumbs), enables the cat to learn and perform feats of manual dexterity generally not observed in non-polydactyl cats, such as opening latches or catching objects with a single paw.


Ok for even more thumbcat madness check out this website.
