Yes, you heard it right. Like most four-legged mammals, they have five toes on the front, but their back paws only have four toes. Scientists think the four-toe back paws might help them run faster.
Even if you own the feline furball with the cutest expression on the planet, your cat’s toes are still among its most adorable features. The cute little colorful paw pads, the way they extend into claws, the amazing list of functions these toes serves all of these things make your cat’s toes fundamental features for its survival. And the cuteness factor is just a big plus.
Don’t worry if your pet has more or fewer toes than expected. It happens all the time, and most times is perfectly harmless.
