Maine Coon Polydactyl, Maine Coon Poly or American Mitten Pawed Cat
Our American Mitten Pawed Cat, Maine Coon Poly, or Polydactyl Maine Coon Cat are all terms that are used to describe our only natural long haired cat. I grew up in New England, as a child, and felt I had a mission to befriend as many living things as was possible. My favorite choice was the local tomcat. They were large, friendly and often had extra toes. My family told stories of how this was our American native cat or the Maine Coon Cat. Local folk tales claim that these cats were fierce hunters and could use their oversized paws to catch live fish right out of the streams. These tales included stories of cats bringing fresh fish home to help feed their human families. They were the cats on the pirate ships and even the cats that rode with the Pilgrims. Sailors traditionally treasured polydactyls because they were believed to be adept at mousing, an important shipboard duty of cats (Buck, 1998). McPolys is a site dedicated to celebrating Maine Coon Polydactyl or Maine Coon Polys.
