The cat in this picture was one of my favorite cats. Like all Siamese cats, he was very smart. He used to jump up onto windowsills and doors. He also used to open cupboard doors and push dishes out. Yes, he broke multiple glasses and coffee mugs. I think his playfulness was partially because his polydactyl paws made him similar to some of the cats that were owned by Ernest Hemingway. The extra toes in his paws gave him the ability to move a part of his front paws like he had thumbs. He even used to try to turn the water faucets on.
