Polydactyl Cats Problems

Polydactyl cats have no special problems as a result of having extra toes except that the claws on the extra toes might get less wear and as a result they may grow into the paw pad.

Sometimes genetic mutations that affect a part of the cat's anatomy can affect other parts of the body and cause health problems. That is not the case with polydactylism.
