We’ve all heard how cats have nine lives (and in the case of the Key West cats, six toes.) But what is it about cats that propel them through so many lives? Knowing their prowling, sneaky nature and reputations for curiosity, it is most likely due to repurrrrcusions of their adventurous spirits. It’s probably not the result of many a cat nap! Or is it?

it would be hard to experience all the exhilaration these small islands offer visitors in just one trip!
And that’s just during the daytime hours. Key West nightlife has no shortage of musical events, bars and restaurants to keep you going in to the wee hours of morning. You could spend a lifetime visiting the Keys having plenty of revelry requiring high levels of energy and a sensation-seeking nature.
Warm, tropical breezes
hammocks swinging beneath the shade of the trees
cool libations with their umbrella picks
ridiculous amounts of fresh caught seafood to consume
can tempt a person (or cat) to resist mustering up the energy to do much other than simply concentrating upon their eyelids. You could spend a lifetime visiting the Keys having plenty of relaxation requiring low levels of energy and a laid back nature.
Maybe just maybe, cats are able to balance the wild with the sublime as they proceed through their many lives. Maybe each life is like a Key West vacation; a balanced blend of
dancing ‘til dawn followed by
peaceful afternoons languishing enough to
recoup the energy to
do it all over again tomorrow.
Or next year. Just don’t wait for your next life to live like a cat in the Keys.
