15 Clever Names For Polydactyl Cats


There’s just something we love about a cat’s paw. With its velvety fur and soft pink “bean toes,” their little feet are simply irresistible! That’s why, when their paws are extra big with extra toes, we know that these kitties are extra special!

The unique features of a polydactyl cat means that they need to have an original, clever name. Check out the list below for some ideas!
