Mutated Cat Rescues Animal Shelter

Daniel is quite an extraordinary kitty. While his 26 toes aren't enough to earn him a Guinness Book title (he's two toes short), they were enough to help him save the shelter he currently calls home. That's because the shelter that took him in was facing some hard times after their landlord doubled their rent.

Fortunately, with Daniel as their poster boy, the shelter was able to solicit donations in increments of $26 (one dollar for each of the kitty's toes) and raised $125,000 — enough for a new shelter. Daniel's extra appendages have helped guarantee a safe home for hundreds more homeless animals.
