Yeah, he was a cat fan, and I'm pretty sure the majority of his cats were plydactyl! He loved those extra toes.

" Of all God's creatures there is only one that cannot be made the slave of the lash. That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve man, but it would deteriorate the cat."

Favorite quote of his

I wonder if Royal Crown Cola ever gave royalties to Mark Twain? I used to live in the deep south here in the US and a favorite meal was "a pack of nabs and an RC cola". A pack of nabs were the cheese toasts that came in 6 packs.

I love mark twain! Now even more, with seeing his love of cats. Very insightful man! I love his clever quips.

Mark Twain is one of my all time favorites!

"A Cat must have three different names:
An everyday family name; A particular name;
And the name but the Cat Himself Knows, and will never confess." T.S. Eliot

looking at some of photo's they do seem to be large footed, but noting that poly's were historic ship cats it seems no small stretch that a riverboat captain would have them.. hemingway was given his poly tom by a ship captain..

yeti cat: two toes short of the record books
eons ago there must had been a creature with a roar
like a vacuum cleaner, it most likely ate cats.
