They’re evolving! Opposable thumbs are just the beginning! Be wary! 😻


JackalopeOrchid

At least they've already trained us to worship and bow before their cuteness. Transition to accepting our cat overlords shouldn't be too difficult.


dropesbr

Transition???? 🤔


JackalopeOrchid

I still control the food container.


R4yd3N9

Not too long now and they will do that themselves It will be remembered as the Cat-aclysm.


FWYDU

“Cats will amusingly tolerate humans only until someone comes up with a tin opener that can be operated with a paw.” - Sir Terry Pratchett


dropesbr

That false sensation of control is the trick they use to keep US under control.


JackalopeOrchid

Hmm damn you're probably right.


DuckChoke

By many definitions cats already do have "opposable thumbs" from the fifth digits natural location. Their paws just are not made to use their digits for things beyond attacking with claws or assisting in eating.


shagieIsMe

Cravendale has a bunch of thumb cat adverts that are an amusing watch - https://youtu.be/_GSuH6LYMho


MrsHollandsVag

he can definitely flush a toilet


ChinaCatMelflower

Yeah right after he drinks from it and watches the toilet paper go down (not joking)


tigralfrosie

Please give him a meaty stick and come back with a photo if he learns how to hold it while eating.


ChinaCatMelflower

I will admit he uses his paws way more than my other cat does


tigralfrosie

Kneading your lap must be...challenging


ChinaCatMelflower

He has a blanket he sucks on for that lol. My hand is another story. I’m constantly buying band aids


THEPOL_00

You need to let him breed to keep on this evolution so that in a million years we will see intelligent cats walking around with phones


dancegoddess1971

Red Dwarf. Watch Red Dwarf. The cat is hands down the best character. Even if he is a vain and conceited and silly but cats are just like that.

BBC scifi comedy from the 90s(? I think.). Funny af.

Lol I’ll give it a shot

You want lazer cats because I'm fairly certain this is how we end up with lazer cats.


Psyk0Tripp

This is some next level furry ambition.

I have a jar I need opened


ChinaCatMelflower

Yes, this is what he’s thinking


deanee01

I would happily buy more bandaids for more thumbs


ChinaCatMelflower

Send me a care package


OliviaWG

I too have a polydactyl orange tabby. He catches temptations treats in mid air with his paw and pops them into his mouth.


ChinaCatMelflower

I have to try this! He loves the salmon temptations and digs at the drawer to be fed 😅


Mechanicface

Mine has the extra toes on all feet, and he uses it as thumbs too! He takes his dry food and flicks it into his water dish, then uses his thumb/ puts his palm upwards, to scoop it back out and eat it wet. Took me a while to figure out why he eats so slowly lol


ChinaCatMelflower

Yes he has 4 extra thumbs! The mess they make!! His whole litter got gifted with the extra thumbs. Must come from his dad cause mom has dainty paws


ChinaCatMelflower

Butters is notorious for flicking the litter out of his paws when he uses the box, he gets it so far away from the box it amazes me.

he/she is gorgeous ps - this is the beginning planet of the cats could happen


ChinaCatMelflower

It’s over for us once they learn how to open their cans


CatIsOnMyKeyboard

I specifically went to this post in search of a Love, Death, and Robots reference and I am now satisfied


kingsamico

It’s a polydactyl! My cat Roxy has extras on her front and back paws. She can open cabinets and doors like no other cat! They were bred as ship cats to keep vermin away, the extra toes were for climbing masts and rigging on the ships. Pretty neat!


Mechanicface

Mine does that too! That story makes sense here as its a fishing community, Paws was a stray my wife found outside at 4wks (born behind our house in the trees), all his siblings have the same mutation too, as well as all his offspring. But none of his family are all black like him!


jabbadonut2

Cats start developing opposable thumbs, we're all in trouble. :)


cbelt3

You mean they will enslave us to give them pets, feed them on demand, and even clean their toilets ? … hate to break it to you, but we are all enslaved…


jabbadonut2

I was making reference to an episode of Love, Death and Robots about cats who had opposable thumbs.


letsrollusafa

“Nobel Prize-winning author Ernest Hemingway was a famous aficionado of polydactyl cats, after being first given, by a ship captain, a six-toed cat he named Snow White.[6][7][8] Upon Hemingway's death in 1961, his former home in Key West, Florida became a museum and a home for his cats, and it currently houses approximately fifty descendants of his cats (about half of which are polydactyl).[8] Because of his love for these animals, polydactyl cats are sometimes referred to as "Hemingway cats".[8][9]”


csinclaire

Finally. I scanned comment after comment wondering if anyone would ever mention Hemingway!


ChinaCatMelflower

That’s where the name came from!!


monsterlynn

THUMBESES!

Miserable-Safety-716

Genetics gave him the BEST murder mittens.


ChinaCatMelflower

That outer thumb is his secret weapon


se7ensenses

Years ago I had a cat that had the same thing; called him Cadillac cause he was fully loaded


ChinaCatMelflower

OMG THIS IS THE BEST COMMENT EVER!!


Blackletterdragon

Reminds me of that old song of The Lovin Spoonfull: "Nashville Cats - Been playin' since they's babies! Nashville Cats - Get work before they's two!"


Karma_Doesnt_Matter

No excuse for him not to go out and get a damn job.


ChinaCatMelflower

I’ve been meaning to get him a neck tie


SereneLotus2

Awwww. Good looking boy! I used to have a polydactyl they are special!


ffsesteventechno

Nice! A polydactyl cat. Not too many of them on here. lol


ChinaCatMelflower

It was certainly new to me


Complete_Bar6223

Cute


Bill_Weathers

Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya...


Can1993hope

These are known to be called polydactyl cats... They are actually found more often in port cities. The theory is, sailors liked to have then on their ships because they can hold onto things in rough seas. Thumbs up for that!


superkickerjess

Viva la evolution!


swivetz

THEY’RE EVOLVING


Appropriate_Check125

it is a genetic anomaly


ChinaCatMelflower

His whole litter was like that:)


anaz686

Woahhhhhhh.


cowskin--

that’s super cool, how many were in the litter?


ChinaCatMelflower

https://imgur.com/gallery/RKMeM6p


ChinaCatMelflower

4 but one didn’t make it after the 1st day. He was 1 of 2 black kitties. I’ll post a pic


gobthepumper

That's because it is an autosomal dominant trait. It's caused by a mutation in a gene that regulates another gene that is called Sonic Hedgehog (no joke) which influences axial specification of limb development. This is a textbook example taught in developmental biology and made famous by Ernest Hemingway collecting these cats


zednephilim

Yeah, its a dominate trait. So if one of the parents have it there is a good chance most of the litter will as well.


paulaustin18

I call it Evolution


This_name_isnt_used

Omg I never thought that it would be so cute


ChinaCatMelflower

Shoulda seen him as a Lilly kitten 😍


cetmoko

The balance of power in my house would greatly shift if my cats had thumbs. I kind of wish they had them anyway, they're so cute.


CressCrowbits

Hello


Skkaj225

Two of my sisters cats have thumbs too


_LifeWontWait86_

Nothing like getting a thumbs up from a cat


kiwichick286

Thems are hitchhiking thumbs!


Unckle-Reg

He’s a clerical cat, when the time is right they will take over and all have predetermined roles set out to make the take over smooth.


Dribblenuts-4343

Yay polydactyl cats... I used to have a thumby guy named Dave!!


Githan

Just do not give him a tiny gun. He’d rob the pet store for catnip.


Mistical_Forsaken

THEY ARE EVOLVING!!! SOON WE WILL NO LONGER BE NUMBER 1!


Bacon676

Y'all ever seen shit like this and thought that's the next step in evolution for these animals but breeders see it as a defect instead? No? Just me?


M1573rGr1mm

If love death and robots is accurate, your cat signifies the beginning of the end for humanity


GenXThreeper

This is a Hemingway cat (polydactyl) a they are awesome. I had a Mainecoon one named Moe they are very cool. Thanks for sharing

Kitten mittens


DownshiftedRare

https://the-disney-afternoon.fandom.com/wiki/Fluffy > it is subsequently revealed to the readers that Fluffy has used the tin cans to make himself an armored exosuit (hence the story's title) that allows him to walk on two feet, complete with gloves that give him opposable thumbs.
