Key West, November 2006
When I first started going to Key West in the mid-'80s, it was famous for its cats, which wander the island pretty freely. Since then, the quantity of feral chickens has exploded, and now Key West is known for its wandering chickens. All the tourist paraphernalia that used to bear images of cats now depicts chickens. I'd say those cats need to get busy.
This particular cat was hanging out on the steps leading up from a deck at the end of Duval Street, which is the main drag through Old Town Key West. Being a cat person, I always relish a good cat photo, though the cat himself didn't seem all that thrilled. (Do they ever?)
