As we toured the Hemingway House in Key West recently I was particularly taken with the cats, being a cat lover myself. Apparently they never leave the confines of the Hemingway House property, but with the perks they get they are smart to refrain from roaming. There's even a vet that checks in regularly to care for the cats.
Hemingway named his cats for famous people and the tradition continues. The one that followed along on our tour of the house has the moniker Fats Waller. The cats are not shy and never seemed to be spooked by crowds of people.

Indeed the cats at the Hemingway House have a very comfy life.
