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.
