A ghost story...




                                           (baby Noodle archives)


It's getting closer to that ghosts and goblin's time of year.
So, putting all the insanity of politics aside for now we offer this;

Did you know that there is a  ghost cat in the Capital building?

The ghost cat or ‘Demon Cat’ is a popular story around Washington DC. The cat apearently haunts the basement of the Capitol building at night and can usually be spotted around the hall between the Crypt of the Capitol and the Old Supreme Court Chamber.

Tourists can even see little paw prints on the floors of the hallway if they look close enough. The story goes that Capitol Hill (then Jenkins Hill), was once the home of a den of black cats, but once construction of the Capitol began (in 1794) the cat’s den was destroyed along with the family of cats.

The mother cat now roams the halls of the basement of the Capitol building where presumably the den was located, searching for her young. Even though there are no unattended pets allowed in the Capitol, late night staffers and visitors have noticed an animal dashing here and there around this area of the building.



Have a wonderful Sunday!
