Poor thing, without it's coat or hair to identify it's true being.

Instead of trying to capture or help it, they automatically labeled it a beast or creature and killed it.

Then folks speculate what it might have been, and come to the conclusion that it had an illness and on top of that had suffered some type of abuse or an attack.

Let's hope it was something ugly.
A nutria rat or opossum,
and not something pretty and clever like a fox or bobcat.

Well, bless the little thing, what ever it was...
it's "mercifully" out of it's misery now.

Fun fact:
Ernest Hemingway loves cats.
But his first cat had a genetic flaw, he had many more toes then he should. To this day, cats with extra toes still live on his estate. Check it out or google it yourself ...

Ok dumbbunny, look it up. His CATS are still cared for at HIS museum/estate. His first cat was believed to be a Maine Coon with extra toes. The cat bred with more cats and to this day there are up to 60 cats that live there, SO DUH!

If you stop trying to pick a fight and google it yourself, you might learn something.

But what if an inbred animal crossed bred with another .... son't make me point out the obvious.
So a deformed hairless mexican dog bred with a fox, what might you get? Don't say it would never happen because freaks of nature do happen. Out of a litter of 6 maybe only one lived.
Nature is strange that way sometimes.

Last year there was an animal that was killed near here--first reports were that it was a chupacabra (sp) turns out it was a racoon with the mange....

Regardless, if an animal is acting "strangely" whatever that may be--nocturnal animal out in the daytime, overly aggressive animal or whatever. Most people will shoot it, simply because it could be rabid. They can't chance the possibility of rabies in their children, pets, or other domesticated animals.....

It's a big tourist destination, within walking distance of Mallory square and the Mel Fisher shipwreck museum. There are bunches of the cats there.........

Right you are Princess, rabies is on the rise recently. You can't take chances.

So now you are the expert on deceased persons? Highly doubtful. Plus I happen to believe that we go to a place that runs parallel to this world. He 'cares' enough for those cats that they are still there to this day.
Love is timeless Geno and only a jerk like you wouldn't know that.
Report that!

The cats lay wherever they want to in the house, the staff is forbidden to bother them. Unless, of course, they were all paper cutouts of cats, because Hemingway didn't really love his animals.........

I guess he hasn't seen as many mangy coyotes as he thought.

Well we might not be able to agree on what it might be a cross breed of, or what kind of freak of nature it maybe.... But I think we all can agree on that it's
"DEAD" !!!
