Pictured above is Chester. Chester is my boyfriend's cat. We came to own this polydactyl (he has six fingers on each foot) wonder cat after he was left in a box on the side of the road with his four brothers to starve.

Chester enjoys many normal cat activities – playing with string, sleeping in cupboards, eating – but also some unorthodox ones. He especially likes munching popcorn, purring so loud the vet can't hear his heart beat and staring at the wall. Above all, he loves rocking out and "helping" my boyfriend play the drums on Rock Band.

Up top is a list of the ten best songs for our six-toed Siberian marvel.

Look at more Chester pictures here.

He could be a descendant of the Hemingway cats in Key West, who all sport six toes as well. Maybe?

Ian- Thanks.

Ano- I'd like to think so. If he starts to develop an unnatural attraction ot the boat in the backyard, I'll let you know. We have some plaster casts of a female nude hanging around (my boyfriend is an artist), and I've noticed him happily pawing away at them despite the fact that they're completely inanimate...

I am really sorry, I was super irritated when my stupid hosting server wouldn't take my copy of "Who's Got The Crack?" I used your link, like a bloody douche bag. I thought it would be okay, considering I only get a couple of downloads. When I went onto the Hype Machine, it was the only one that worked and seeing as I was receiving a hundred hits on that post I removed it.

Sorry for the inconvenience and time wasting I have just caused,

P.s googlemail says your email doesnt work (?)
