Six Toed Cat - Very visible and living links to the past are the descendants of Hemingway's cat Snowball. The story goes that Hemingway had a sea captain friend who owned an unusual six-toed tomcat. Upon his departure from Key West, the captain gave the cat to Hemingway. Today many of the numerous cats that grace the grounds still possess the unusual six toes. They are fed by the property staff and it is illegal to take or harass them. There is also protective netting around the property that keeps the cats from getting loose.
