Cat With 26 Toes Saves Animal Shelter

This is Daniel, the 26-toed cat, and he has used his super power for good. After the rent had been doubled at their existing location, Daniel became the poster child for a fundraising effort to save the Milwaukee animal shelter which had saved him. Soliciting $26 donations—one for each toe—Daniel quickly raised $125,000, enough to buy a new shelter.

It’s a genetic mutation called polydactylism and even though it’s two toes shy of a Guinness World Records number, it’s helping Milwaukee shelter officials raise money to buy a new home after they learned their rent was being doubled.
