Hemingway

Fotograf Henry Hargreaves (den kennt Ihr von seinem Rainbow-Burger) ist ins Hemingway-Museum voller Katzen mit sechs Zehen gefahren und hat die Viecher fotografiert. Hemingway hatte ein Faible für Mutanten-Katzen und das nach ihm benannte Museum hält die Tradition aufrecht.

Ernest Hemingway was celebrated in life as a great writer, lover, sportsman, adventurer and rebel-rouser. What is less well known is that he was also a renowned cat lover. He was given a 6 toed cat, Snowball, by a ships captain who came to visit him in Key West. Soon Snowball had a litter of Polydactyl gene carrying cats, who Hemingway named after famous people of his time. Just as the Hemingway legend continues to grow after his death so does the celebrity named, 6 toed, 55 cat colony at his home turned museum.
