If we didn't have 10 fingers...

How would we count if we didn't have ten fingers?

Lets look at Mickey Mouse for example.
He only has 4 fingers on each hand, for a total of 8.

Does he count the same way as us?
No, he and many other cartoon characters with only 8 fingers would feel unnatural counting like us.

Since he only has 8 fingers, he would not be able to show us the number 9 using his fingers.

So how does Mickey count?
