Mittens














Hello, my name is Mittens Pollypaws. I got my name because I have huge feet, I am a polydactyl. I have extra toes on my back feet too, but they are up high on my back legs. I tend to be a little on the clumsy side, but you would be too with big feet!!! My meowmie was doing volunteer work at our local animal shelter in Sept. of 2000 when I was brought in. I was so timid and afraid that I hid under my bedding all the time and growled at everyone. She knew that nobody would adopt me cause there was all these cute little kittens that purred and played and didn't hide. One day she came with a big metal thing and put me in it and off we went in her car. She knew I had already been spayed, but took me to the vet for a good physical at which time the vet said I was between 6 and 7 years old. I still growl when I don't like something, but I am a big sweetheart. -Toni

Good morning! Mittens, you're beautiful just like your sister Patches! Such beautiful markings! And those mittens of yours! What a great picture showing them off! And for anyone who doesn't know the Calico Girls, you should go visit their beautiful site!

Riquel - Have you been sick? Hope all is well!

Kim - Good luck today!

Hope everyone else is well and having a good morning!

What a beauty - love her markings!

Kim said...

These are great pictures of Mittens! She's a very pretty cat. Toni, I do the same thing when I rescue a cat, I like the ones I think won't find a home. They turn out to be the best, even if it takes them time to trust us! It took my Arthur (RIP) almost four years to become trusting and loveable to people other than my husband and me. Time and understanding is what it takes. You've done a great job with the precious, beautiful girl!

Thanks Kat. I'll be leaving in 15 minutes. Hopefully I won't be gone more than an hour. I say hopefully because I'll have Princess with me.

Loa, did you get my last message? I'm going to move and not tell you where I'm going, you're going to be stuck with the brats! HAHA!!! Or should I say MUhahahaha!

Cecilia said...

Mittens you beautiful girl - you sound just like Grr with the hiding and the growling! I love growly kitties. I also love big paws, and yours are lovely! Tell your mom that she's done a great job helping with your blog - it's one of the prettiest I've seen!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Mittens is so beautiful, love the big paws. And we all love the Calico Girls blog.

BTW, if anyone else is angry and upset that our beloved PLANET PLUTO is no longer a planet, go make yourself heard at Danielle's Ventors Welcome. What's next????

Pumpkin said...

Good morning, Mittens! You are SUCH a beautiful girl and I love vising your blog and reading about your adventures. Say "Hi" to Patches for me and give Mistrie a wave with your awesom pollypaw.

Rosie, if you want to see a louche tabby, come visit Pumpkin's World to see VERY revealing pictures of Tiger. He's so embarrased! LOL!

Kathleen said...

Hi Mittens, I have very big feet too, just means that you have a big heart!
To the Fuzz Pack-help! Rosie the Rose has resumed pooping on the carpet next to her box, what should I do???!!!

LOA said...

the sand my be buggin her dont she have a flat nose? and id u put new sand in after the old cat left ?sanitized real good she is smelling the peeee from it i think one of this will work i hope

Kathleen said...

Did clean the box out and put new pearls in, which she used before. She has used both clumping and pearls. Maybe the brand of pearls? When she did use the box once this week, she got so much praise from mom, I thought that would be it!
Happy weekend to all.

Emma's Kat said...

I will ask my sponsor for the rescue group I foster for, she knows alot. Does she urinate in the box? Is she just pooing outside the box? Or both? Hmmmm... We'll get to the bottom of this! ;)

momsbusy said...

miss mitten polypaws you are truly a lady of good upbringing. you sit so pretty with your legs crossed in the proper way. your little white paws peek out from the fuzzy hair on your long legs. you could be a supermodel. perhaps you could get together with karen c's supermodel kitty.

Kathleen said...

In the beginning, used clumping litter for both. After Cairo, wouldn't use either clumping or pearls for either function. After Cairo, is using pearls for urination and the floor for pooping. Trust me, we have a conversation every morning as I am picking up "Rosie is pooping on the floor, that is a no no" (think kindergarten teacher voice) Have been spraying said carpet areas to remove the smell.

Kathleen said...

Kat-bottom of this indeed!

caspersmom said...

Mittens I am so glad your meowmie took you home so you can live out your life in a forever home with love. You are a very pretty girl and who cares if you have big feet.

V. Schroeder said...

Just found your blog, because of the name through 2996. Love the cat pictures and comments. We (my husband really has it) have a blog and I have started posting cat cartoons of our two, he has generously posted them. Your blog helps me not feel entirely pathetic, they are wonderful aren't they? Here's the link for the start of the cartoons, they will be every Tuesday.

Mittens you are a very beautiful girl. I just love your lil white toes.

Victor Tabbycat said...

Mittens! I hafn't had a chance to look here today until now. How furry nice to see one of my favorite lady cats bein honored.
Calico Girls, won't you come out tonight,
And dance by the light of the moon

Victor Tabbycat said...

Kathleen - no expert, but two suggesions: 1. When you pick her poop off the floor, put it in the box. That reminds her, "this is where it goes."
2. Never tried it, but there's a litter called Cat Attract that is supposed to live up to its name. On the other paw, cats don't like sudden changes in litter type. CATch 22!
Did you clean the litter box itself to remove odor? Diluted bleach was suggested somewhere. Continue to be patient and forgiving. VT's Mom

Gattina said...

What a funny face I have never seen a cat with a black nose and half of the face "red". Beautiful eyes too. Cat patterns are sometimes full of phantasy !

rosie(thinking outside the box) said...

.....maybe my namesake is still pissed-off(ahem) because some parts of the house still smell like Cairo....maybe it's psychological and you need to buy a new litter box all together..although it is wasted money, it might be worth parting with the $5-$10 in the long run....DISCUSS........
