“Dutchess the Cat with Thumbs”: a sweet and engaging children’s story about a fun-loving cat with a very special gift. “Dutchess the Cat with Thumbs” is the creation of published author, Rue.

Rue writes: “Dutchess the Cat with Thumbs is based on a real-life cat. Dutchess was adopted from a shelter. Nobody wanted her. Everybody thought she was handicapped. Dutchess learned as a kitten she had “special” paws. As she got older, she would pick up pens and pencils. She could open doors while turning the handle. She would also scoop up toys and play with them. Dutchess passed away from a tumor when she was eight years old. I wanted to write this book to keep her unique legacy alive. Of course, we added some imagination to make this book fun. I hope you enjoy the story of Dutchess.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Rue’s new book is a warm, sweet, and feel-good tale about a very special polydactyl cat called “Dutchess.”

This beautifully illustrated book is full of fun, entertaining from the first page to the last, and teaches young readers the importance of acceptance and celebrating the differences of others.

A fascinating short story of the history and lore of Polydactyl cats ends the book.
