Dominque Lefort, a Frenchman known to many as “Cat Man,” has developed an enormously popular pre-sunset show over three decades in Key West. The cats — pets that many people consider untrainable — jump long distances on command, exhibit amazing balance, and leap through flaming hoops. In this week's feature, New Times meets the man behind the Conch Republic show.
