In Key West for Thanksgiving? Don’t pass up the chance to visit the Hemingway Home, sanctuary to a curious collection of 6-toed cats. It’s claimed they’re descendants of a fluffy white feline named .. ahem .. Snow White that was given to Ernest, the lauded author, by a passing ship’s captain. These cats, known as polydactyls by scientists, were known by a whole host of other names by Hemingway who named them after famous people. That tradition still stands to this day. Enjoy these famous little felines then head to the waterfront for a stunning sunset and a tasty sundowner.
