Hairy ears and paws ~ cute!?

I don't know much about cats, and what I DO know I learned on this forum. Anyway, one of the things that drew me to Tiger was his cute hairy ears (like a little old man, LOTS of hair). He's a medium to long haired ginger tabby and he's 6 months old. He also has a ton of hair growing between his toes. It's probably 1 1/2 inches long and sticks out on the bottom of his paws. Is this typical for certain cats or just one of those things some cats get? Of course, I think it's darling, but I just don't know if it is common.

Thanks for all the past and future information and insights into these wonderful, kooky pets we call cats!

Hairy ears and toes

He sounds so cute - is that him in your avatar?
My Jimmy has hairy ears and toes - I think that is a lovely feature. I think it is so cute when he pounces on you and grabs your ankle, its just like being grabbed by little furry mittens! (he is very good, and usually keeps his claws retracted!)
I haven't posted pictures yet, but there are some in my gallery in the Cat Photos section if you want to have a look.

One of my cats, Mackenzie, has huge tufts between his toes, they are so cute, especially as he has such big feet!

I love cats with big tufty ears and paws! Assumpta has pretty big paws for her size, and quite impressively tufted. She doesn't have the bobcat-type MC ear tips, but her ear tufts are extremely elegant and sweeping. The paws were one of the first things I noticed about her (followed closely by her very impressive breeches...when she was having a poopy-pants problem a while back, the vet was trimming her backside a little, and said to me "I just can't take off too much, she has the prettiest breeches I've ever seen!")

Yes, that's Tiger in my avatar, but he was only 2 months old then, and now he's a big cat at 6 months old. Here's one other kitten picture I have of him. I'm having trouble getting a good shot, seems like his face doesn't stay in focus.

See his cute ear hair! I'm glad that there are other kitties who are as furry and as loved as Tiger.

Simone has tufts in her toes and it makes it so hard to trim her nails. Just when I get the hair out of the way to clip a nail she shifts and I have to dig again for the nail. LOL! She also has cute breeches. Every now and then though we will find a turd on the floor, but we know it's not cause someone pooped outside the box. They get stuck to her hair and she carries a turd out with her. LOL!
