Hemingway's Cat

As one of the decendants of Ernest Hemingway's cats, Ivan has no worries as he is well taken care of , along with the other feline inhabitants of the Hemingway House in Key West, Florida.  Ivan was named after the hurricane that blew through south florida the month he was born. 

There are approximately 60 cats on the property all related to Snowball, the first cat owned by Hemingway and his then wife, Pauline.  The cat was a gift from a visiting sea captain.  Snowball had six toes.  Several cats currently on the property have six toes as the trait has been passed down with each generation.

I processed this image with Nik Silver Efx Pro and used the Holga preset.  This is one of my favorite images from the trip.
