If you've read any of Ernest Hemingway's works and like cats, you'd be interested in visiting Hemingway's House. The famed author resided in Key West from 1929-1940 at the time of his second marriage. Today it is now a museum where you can get a guided tour of his home and see approximately 56 cats (direct descendents) roaming freely around his home and garden. Many of them bear the dominant trait of Hemingway's original cats, having 6 toes on each paw. If you're curious about where Hemingway wrote some of his most famous novels, 'A Farewell To Arms' and 'For Whom the Bell Tolls,' visit the museum and take a peek at how this one author spent his days in Key West.
