The James T. Callow Folklore Archive
The Key island of Islamorada Florida is a breeding
ground for cats. Mainly due to the countless un-neutered cats
roaming around. The cats are attracted to the back doors of
seafood restaurants waiting patiently for hours. At one time
I witnessed over 20 cats meowing and waiting for the remains
of shrimp, smoked fish, and lobster. A feeding frenzy occurs
when scraps are thrown to them. If a cat in particular is
liked the individual would take it to the veterinarian and
have it de-clawed, neutered, and given its shots. Then
collared and registered.
