I was just wondering if polydactyly is generally allowed in "Household Pet" sections of cat shows. I know that section is for non-purebred cats, so obviously the standards are a bit looser (not that the cats aren't just as lovely.....I'm not trying to insult anyone's babies here ). I'm asking because I'd like to give a show a try, but I think only Sammy would be able to be shown. Lola is a beautiful example of a domestic shorthair brown tabby and very personable as far as loving to be pet and played with ON THE GROUND, but she does NOT like being held, especially by strangers, so I don't think she'd enjoy herself. She'd freak out and wiggle until the judge dropped her, then lay at (or on) his feet where she'd expect HIM to lean down to pet her . So that just leaves Sammy, who is a 1 year old, VERY long, lean, gorgeous black tuxedo cat with a laid back temperment. Sammy is very tolerant about being held and poked at, BUT he has polydactyly on his front paws, so I'm not sure he's eligible to be shown, unless there's some sort of "Mutant Freak of Nature" category
Have any of you ever heard of a polydactyl cat being eligible to be shown?
