The Adventures of Toez, the Polydactyl Kitten - Guest Heart Thursday

Princess Twinkle Toez came to live with us about a month ago.  She has six toes on all but one paw.  She is what people sometimes refer to as a Mitten Cat, because her front paws look like mittens.  Her back paws look like her feet are on wrong, because the larger toe is on the outside of her foot--rather than the inside.

Below you see her with one of the toys she delights to bat across the floor.  Once she catches it, she often holds her prize between her hands--rather like a human!
Her feisty personality has inspired many small ACEO drawings.  She loves to play--often pouncing upon anything that moves--and sometimes it is all in her imagination.

Toez was sleeping in the window seat when I sketched this more realistic drawing of her.

After awhile she awoke with that quizzical look upon her whiskered face.  "What you doing?" she seems to say.  She would rather eat my pencil, you see--and why did I awaken her from her nap?  Well, she's just SO cute!  I'm sure as time proceeds there will be many more adventures from Toez, the Polydactyl Kitten

I will be putting these up for sale on Etsy after I add a little color!
