Ernest Hemingway (1899 - 1961) - Owner of 30 cats. One of Ernest Hemingway's most unusual cat was a six-toed cat given to him by a ship's captain. The descendants of Hemingway's original cats still live in his estate.
I've heard more and more about Hemingway cats since picking up Moo. That's the first thing people mention when they see the rack of extra toes on her - as I understand it, he left his entire estate to the cats, and if you go take the tour or visit, you're not allowed to pet them!

I hope he made enough money to hire people to come in and cuddle them when we weren't looking. lol

I wonder why cats assume that we want their butts in our faces.

I tried to kiss my cat and she backed away as far as possible. I don't know if she just didn't want a kiss or if if my breath is bad.

Although, if I woke up to a pair of lips coming at me, I'd probably try to get away as well.

I think it's a female cat thing. Trying to mark us with scent glands.

I visited the Hemingway House when I was in Key West. Kitties everywhere - I was in heaven. You couldn't pet them but just seeing them lounging around and living the good life was a heart thumper.
