Brodie purrs about cats in The White House

Meow!  Yes, that is where this is going.  My golden retriever whiskers want you to read some feline facts about cats who lived in The White House...beginning with Thomas Jefferson all…the way through to George W. Bush.  I personally enjoyed learning that “Once, during a winter visit to General Grant’s headquarters, Lincoln rescued three half-frozen kittens from a Civil War battlefield telegraph hut.  He tucked them in his coat and brought them back to the White House to join Tabby before finding a good home for them.”  Tabby was Tad’s cat, Lincoln’s son.

Just think…rescuing animals has been going on since people have cared.  Now…now that is a hopeful ending. Meow and peace peeps.
