The Cat With Twenty Toes is an illustrated children’s book featuring a polydactyl cat named Sookie. The author uses Sookie as a metaphor to celebrate the physical differences among all living creatures.

Colorful illustrations and a rhyming verse make this book a fun and lighthearted way to introduce the concept of diversity to young children.

Sookie is based on Tony Lovitt’s brother Brad’s cat and is dedicated to Brad’s memory. A portion of all proceeds for this book will go to the City of Hope cancer treatment and research facility in Los Angeles.

5 Comments on Review: The Cat With Twenty Toes

  1. What a wonderful and adorable book for children and I wish I had a child in my life to buy it for. One of my very first cats years ago, Roger, was polydactyl and I loved his big feet!

  2. We have a Polydactyl we rescued here in San Antonio, Texas. Muffin is about 14 yrs now, talks to us, saying Hi, Yeah & responds to our questions. She also punches her rescue siblings with her 5 finger fists! Still the alpha-girl! She holds my hand, too! Love ❤️ our little golden doll!

  3. I remember a vacation years ago in Florida and seeing the desendents of Ernest Hemingway’s cats that were polydactyl. There were a few that were buried on the site with their names on stones. He loved his cats.
