If you read my last post I'm sure you noticed Lola's big paws. Lola was a rescued cat that one of my client's found behind her office. lost and emaciated.
Home she came and now she lives in the lap of luxury.
See the extra thumb
Isn't she gorgeous!
Lola is a polydactyl cat. A polydactyl cat has more 'toes' than your normal everyday kitty-cat.
A polydactyl cat is a cat with a congenital physical anomaly called polydactyly (or polydactylism, also known as hyperdactyly), a type of cat body type genetic mutation that causes the cat to be born with more than the usual number of toes on one or more of its paws. Cats with this genetically inherited trait are most commonly found along the East Coast ofNorth America (in the United States and Canada) and in South West England and Wales. The Carleton Place area where I live has many of these beautiful, big-footed cats.
Ebony has tiny feet but a big personality.
I'll miss her but she's already booked for a time in September so, "See you soon, sweet Ebony."
My favorite time of year is just within reach. I'm already planning the flowers for the porch and thinking about going through my Fall clothing. Pumpkin muffins have been dancing in my head lately.
The colours of Fall & hot chocolate, warm sweaters, new runners, Calico Cats. Love, love, love.
