Hello, I'd like to introduce Finnegan the joyful cat. He came into our lives three years ago. My elderly dad's longtime cat companion had recently crossed the bridge and we desperately needed another furry companion to help keep the sadness at bay. Little did we suspect the bundle of energy and merriment that was about to come into our lives via a local shelter! The very second I sat down this little tornado of a cat landed in my lap. One look at that face was enough...he had found his home and we found healing through laughter. Finnegan has had us in stitches ever since.

You can't help but smile at his wonderfully expressive face and playful nature. As you can see in the second photo, he even comes equipped with his own clown feet. He's an 'extreme' polydactyl, having extra toes on both front and back paws. I often think of Finnegan as a 'Peter Pan' cat, never losing his kitten-like energy and sweetness. We are so grateful to have him in our lives, he brings us joy every day. -Rae

I love orange kitties. And this cat looks like a ton of fun. Just look at those big feet and toes. And that face.
He came into your life at precisely the right time. What a cutie.

Hi! We have a Finnegan too! He's not orange though, he's white with tabby and cream (possibly meezer) markings. He is a forever young cat too! He's almost 9 and still plays like he did when I first adopted him at 1.
