Feeding the Cats

Key West probably has almost as many cats as it does poultry. Yes, it has the six-toed cats, which are said to originate from the Hemingway House. But there also just a lot of regular Toms. Volunteers help manage the stray population by spaying and neutering them. You can tell when a cat has been fixed because his ear has a little knick taken out of it. All the cats look forward to the al fresco meals they get twice a day. That's what those little piles of cat food are which you can come across every now and then on the sidewalk.


  1. I really love this. Great shot! I had an 8 toed cat a few years ago, but he ran away when I moved. He was really fascinating.

  2. Eight-toed--he must have been able to help you cook, clean, and mow the lawn.
