Hemingway's cats on the rampage

OK, I admit, there's not much of a movie connection here. Well, not unless you count the fact that Ernest Hemingway wrote To Have and Have Not and A Farewell to Arms while living in the Key West abode (now preserved as a museum) that has become a haven for "Ivan, an orange tomcat born in 2004, the year Hurricane Ivan killed dozens of people in the Caribbean and the USA. According to [neighbor Debbie] Schultz, Ivan the cat wreaks another type of havoc on the cat population outside the museum wall...

"'I saw Ivan many times loose,' she says. 'Ivan is a very unneutered, very macho male cat, and in each case, he had one of the street cats pinned down,' she says."

Maybe Ms. Schultz would not be so upset if Ivan took a more romantic approach while tomcatting around.
