Mitten Kitten or the Polydactyl Kitty

Meet Margarita a current adoptable kitty at the RVSPCA.  She is noticeably a polydactyl cat, meaning she has extra toes. Polydactyl kitties come through the shelter on rare occasion. I think I have photographed maybe 4 or 5 in the almost 2 years I have been volunteering. In every shot I make sure to show off her polydactylness.  This one is special, it shows her being a typical cat with amazing two toned green eyes and decked out in her pearls but with her little something special. It appears that she is reaching out to shake your human hand. In actuality, she was swatting at a toy the handler was holding for her.
