Mittens Polypaws



Here is a beautiful picture of Mittens. She was adopted from a shelter where CalicoMom was working when she was seven years old. She is an older kitty now and sleeps a lot. She has always been very shy, but she and Patches get along pretty well. Mittens is a polydactyl, which is how she got her name.

Mittens Polypaws has lots of toes.
White ones. Black ones. Pink? Some of those.
She is very shy
When strangers are nigh,
But she might like to meet Mistrie Rose.
