I present to you....

Hemingway Cats!

We are currently on vacation in the Florida Keys and we went to the former home of Ernest Hemingway. Of course it's a museum - the house has been maintained and the gardens are beautiful. It's also the home to 45 cats, many of which are polydactyls. Of course they were the highlight of the tour :happy:

So here's a few of the beauties:

What a wonderful place. Paradise for cats and people who love cats. I take it these are some of the descendants of the cats that lived there when papa Hemingway was still around.

Yes...these are several generations down from the originals. I know there were three cats that were pointed out to us as being three generations. Sea captains believed that six toed cats were good luck and Hemingway got one...Snowball. Apparently several cats on the premises are descendants of his. This is their website: http://www.hemingwayhome.com/cats/

They name the cats after famous people who were around when Hemingway lived.

I haven't been that far South in over 20 years. I do love the house and have always wanted a poly. One day there will be one at the pound or knocking on our door.
Love the photos. Your girls are lovely!

Gorgeous kitties! We had a little girl kitty at work that we swore was a descendant of Hemmingways! How she would have made it all the way to South Houston, we don't know. But it was fun imagining.
