    Key West to be exact:

    Cat fight pits government against Hemingway museum - TODAY Travel
    I toured that place @ 30 yrs ago. I remember a pool, a safe, and nice breezes.

    It's still nice and still busy. I got to go up in to loft area where Papa wrote.

    I hope they don't reduce the cats by much - seeing so many lounging around outside is part of the charm.

    It's humane to spay and neuter a bunch of these cats. Do they do that there?

    Today, approximately 60 cats, half of them polydactyl (six toed) make their home in the Ernest Hemingway Museum and Home, in Key West, protected by the terms of his will
    Routine procedures such as ear mite treatment, flea spraying, and worming are performed here at the museum by our Veterinarian, Dr. Edie Clark. Dr Clark also administers annual vaccinations, and performs routine animal health maintenance.


    Who you do you think you are Arthur??? Better than Hemingway? You righteous so and so?


    Here Papa with his children Gregory and Patrick from second wife Pauline ...and his beautiful six toe cats

    I still have a big problem with you!

    So what if the cats have 6 or 7 or 8 toes ..... what is your problem? spray ok ...but you seem bent on making them dissapear from this earth! they are not different from other cats!

    also


    they were an inspiration to Ernest Hemingway.. the best writer of the 20th century :D
