| Polydactyls are also called Mitten Cats. Some Polydactyls can catch with one paw. Polydactyls were once put to death because they were considered to be witch cats. Polydactyls were beloved and made famous by Ernest Hemingway, whose home in Key West now houses more than sixty descendents of his Polydactyl cats that have remained on his estate since his death in 1961.
