Cat With “Spock” Paw Shows Up at a Couple’s Door, Meowing to Be Let In and Quickly Steals Their Hearts

A couple found a cat meowing at the door at night, braving the cold. They brought him in, and the kitty snuggled right up to them in gratitude.

Meet Spock the cat!

Spock showed up on the couple’s porch a few days ago, scratching at their door, crying for help. They opened the door for the little grey and white cat to come in. It was incredibly cold at -25°C (-13°F) in Eastern Ontario, Canada. The sweet kitty was so glad to be in a warm home.

“He was skinny, and curled right up to us. We gave him food and he inhaled it like he was starving,” reddit user thejesscat said.

It didn’t take long for the couple to notice something very special about the cat. His right paw is deformed, resembling the Vulcan salute from Star Trek, hence his name, Spock.

“He only has two bones coming from his wrist instead of four. One is really thick and has two thumbs, the other one is stubby and has a half-formed claw. The underside is a couple toe beans and weird growths that look like they were supposed to be claws,” she said.

“It’s the same issue as polydactyl, but certain bones fused together and some just don’t exist.”
