This is a credible source I'm familiar with, but it misses what's important and talks all about Hemingway--blah, blah, blah. I don't know TMZ and how credible a source it is, but this article focuses on what's important: all 55 cats at the Hemingway House in Key West made it through Irma!!! Yay!!! OK, all other sources I've looked at say it's 54 cats, but I'm going to go with this one. Maybe a kitten was born during the storm, OK?

The parents took us to the Hemingway House when I was 6 or 7 and there were cats everywhere there and I was in heaven, so this was a special spot in my Irma concern. I know it doesn't help anyone from Barbuda, but I'm glad the cats and curators at HH made it through fine.

Here's another article on the 54 55 Hemingway cats with an explanatory vid showing some of them engaging in the very exciting sport of Multiple Cats sleeping on Beds--watch the gray one's expert utilization of the casual ear flick. Note the black and white cat named after the famous statesman I.M. Snowball. May they all sleep comfortably and soundly today.

I will get back to eclipse reporting--just had to pass on the happy news!

That is great news! I've worried over all the innocent animals, both domestic and wild, that didn't fare so well.

Best news of the day, as the article says! :)

I have read that the rare Key deer has been seen post-Irma, so hopefully that species will also survive.

oh good!!!! I passed this along to my mom and our mutual friend, both of whom were so appalled that they had stayed and worried for them.

Oh, that's good to hear. (Yeah, I know a lot of folks don't care for this way of thinking, but if thoughts build up some kind of energy, adding a little more energy to cats-alive-yay! wouldn't be bad at all!)

I saw a report on that, too! So happy to read it. And I understand they stayed because the house was built in 1851, of 18-inch blocks of limestone, and is on the high point of the island (a whole 16 feet above sea level!), so they figured it was not going anywhere. And they said the limestone blocks keep it cool inside, so bonus!
