Ernest Hemingway's six toe cats- Gov't tries to regulate
[link to todaytravel.today.com]

Key West Hemingway Museum

"A popular tourist attraction has lost another round in the legal battle over who is in charge of the slinky creatures with nine lives and six toes roaming its grounds.

The 11th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Friday ruled that the government does have the power to regulate the dozens of cats that live at the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum in Key West, Fla. — a notion the attraction has fought for years.

Some 250,000 visitors flock to the site each year to experience the house where the famed American writer lived from 1931 to 1938 and see the polydactyl (six-toed) felines whose company he enjoyed.

But the government began taking a closer look at the operation several years ago, when a visitor complained about the museum’s care of the animals to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, according to court documents..."

I'm sure many of us have been there. A beautiful place and the cats are well cared for as it is their home. Does the Government not have anything better to do?

My sweet, orange boy, Rusty, is a polydactyl. He actually has two extra toes on each front paw. Rusty is 20 years old, and I love him so.rockon

Ahhh. Has he had any offspring? Wondering if the male or female passes this trait.
