Here is part of a story about the Hemingway
Cats copied from a USA Today article:
"Literary legend's six-toed legacies
live on in Key West
much to the dismay of some. The fight over the felines has grown to include the
USDA and the courts.
The legendary American novelist Ernest Hemingway lived
in Key West for a decade
in the 1930s, in a stone mansion on Whitehead Street with his wife, Pauline, and
a six-toed cat named Snowball."
"Hemingway divorced Pauline in
1939, but Snowball stayed on. Today, about 50 of Snowball's descendants roam the
grounds, to the delight of many tourists who visit the Hemingway
Home and Museum. But the cats won't be roaming much longer, if the federal
government has its way."
"The U.S. Department of Agriculture has
cited the museum for violating a 1966 federal animal welfare law, and has threatened
to impose stiff fines or confiscate the cats if the Hemingway
Home does not do more to control the felines. Department inspectors say
that the museum must be licensed as an exhibitor of animals, and that the cats,
which sometimes climb over the wall surrounding the grounds, must be confined
to the property."
