Hemingway’s Six Toed Cats survive hurricane


Hurricane Irma laid down entire islands, streets turned into rivers, cranes broke and more than 30 people died, but Hemingway’s six-fingered cats are fine, the New York Times reported. The 54 cats, most of them descendants of a white polydacty cat owned by Ernest Hemingway, live at the writer’s home in Key West, Florida, an area that was severely hit by Hurricane Irma.As Irma approached last week, officials ordered a complete escape of the Florida Keys, but Jacque Sands, general manager of the House and Museum, Ernest Hemingway, refused to leave.
