        Polydactyl Maine Coons

        The history of the Polydactyl Sebago Mist Maine Coon all originates from the beautiful silvery blue mackerel tabby with white, four-footed polydactyl Misty. Misty is a native of Maine and was born by the waters of the Androscoggin river.


        Misty is a beautiful example of the Maine Coon found in the wilderness of Maine. She has a very distinct toe-pattern as an example of the “double-pawed” Maine Coons we see today. There is always a slight variation of the toe patterns and the SebagoMist Polydactyl has the charming thumb shape,

          

        excellent for grabbing the favorite toy or the opening of a cupboard for treats! 

         

        Misty had a son named Sebago Mist Sir Alex who was the splitting image of Misty as a lad. He is also a silvery blue mackerel tabby with white, a four-footed polydactyl.


        Sir Alex also has the sweet thumb style polydactyl toes and beautiful whiskers to match! Sir Alex became our father and grandfather of new lovely double-pawed kittens!

        A polydactyl Maine coon is a Maine Coon in every characteristic and with extra toes.  This word means multi-toed, and the extra-large paws are nicknamed double-paws, because the paws are usually double-wide in size.   They can walk through snow more easily, hence another nickname of snowshoe cat; but most often, they are simply called polys.
