The Guinness world record for the cat with most toes belongs to Jake who has 28 toes, with 7 on each paw, as counted by a veterinarian. Jake lives in Bonfield, Ontario, Canada with his owners, Michelle and Paul Contant.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the Largest collection of cats, owned by Carmen de Aldana (Guatemala), who has 21,321 different cat-related items.
The scientist, who has been studying animal anomalies for years, took the cat to X-ray its unusual ears but decided to take her home to his children.
Obryvkov said that the cat named Luntya also has big paws but her behavior does not differ from that of normal cats.
He also said that he wants to mate his new pet with a four-eared cat living in Vladivostok to create a new breed of these fluffy animals.
Obryvkov has already studied a calf with two heads, tails and hearts, a one-eyed lamb, chickens with four legs, conjoined pigs, and a colt with two noses and three eyes.
