The Drinking Fountain - Hemingway's House in Key West has the most famous cat drinking fountain in the world, he himself had it built for his beloved cats. The top of the fountain is an old Spanish olive jar that he brought from Cuba and the trough below came from Hemmingway's good friend Joe Russell's bar Sloppy Joe's. It is actually one of the bar's urinals that was given to Hemming way when Joe moved his bar across the street due to a dispute over money. Pauline hated it and added the decorative tile to disguise it. The ironic thing is that the cats don't like it much either and rarely use it.
