Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum; Florida, U.S.A.--WEBCAM DEACTIVATED



Approximately 60 cats live here in Key West. Many are named for movie stars, and about half have extra toes. Sometimes the tourists outnumber the cats. I watched this cam in August as Tropical Storm Fay blew through and saw a broken palm in the foreground and a kitty moseying by in the background.  Though the beloved cat cam is gone, you can occasionally see something on the wedding cam (but not any more--that's gone, too, now!).
