I hadn’t seen the "Milwaukee cat named Daniel has 26 toes" story until last week.  

I believe, though, WISN first reported the story when the Milwaukee Animal Rescue Center brought this furry, many-digit feline into focus

Now, this local cat toe tale is everywhere.  Do a search for "26 toed cat," and more than 130 stories appear.  

Today, the Chicago Sun Times has the story.

I guess everyone loves a good pet story.  Especially when it's a bit odd.
