Unfortunately, the house and the cats are in the path of the worst of Irma as it passes over the Keys within the next 24 hours.
Although they have not been evacuated, the loving staff is staying behind to care for the cats (who number about 50) and the home during Irma. The home is old and very sturdy, so I think they will be okay.
Please send your thoughts and prayers to all the cats and the staff who are staying behind.
Visiting Key West one day and spending time with the cats (and enjoying the beautiful beaches there) is definitely on my bucket list.
Good news! All 54 Hemingway cats are SAFE!
