Hemingway, 2008-2020

Hemingway left this earth surrounded by the loving staff of the Winterset Veterinary Center on January 31, 2020. He was born during the summer of 2008 and left on the doorstep of the clinic with his siblings. He was born with extra toes on all 4 feet and therefore was named after Ernest Hemingway who first discovered polydactyly cats.

During his life he was in charge of public relations at Winterset Veterinary Center and greeted customers on a daily basis looking for any and all attention. He became a celebrity by attending the Covered Bridge Parades and visits to the local schools to promote pet health. In 2010 he got his own FaceBook page and made more friends in the last 10 years than most people do in a lifetime.
We share this sad news today so you can share a favorite memory or thought about Hemingway if you would like. We know he will be missed because many asked to see him when in the building. He lived a great life and will be forever remembered as that overly friendly, overly fluffy, polydactyly Hemingway. We will see you at the Rainbow Bridge someday Hemingway!
