one of my favourite things in the whole world is the cat man of key west. cat man is a street performer with trained housecats who jump through hoops etc. he is a crazy frenchman and so much more than that.
i first saw him in 1992, and then again in 2006. (i was pregnant with Maxine and in a baby name frenzy- i was thinking 2 of his cats' names would be good for a baby- Cosette or Oscar).
the kids and my sister and I went tonight to see him. the kids loved him.
he is not a minor celebrity here. he put his daughter through Cornell on his show earnings!
he has all these crazy gestures and catchphrases= "hurry up take your time!" that the kids said for weeks last time we saw him.
so much fun!
here's a youtube video to give you a taste:
