Six-toed cats at Hemingway's estate safe for now
The six-toed cats that reside at Ernest Hemingway's estate in Key West are safe for the time being, according to an AP report. The Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum announced that it had reached an agreement with the USDA that will allow the cats to continue to roam the grounds after having an installed a fence that will keep the cats from leaving the property. The USDA had taken the position that the museum needed a permit to exhibit animals. According to the report, the museum stated that it has payed $250,000 in attorneys' fees and the fence.
