Parliament's Cat House

While we're waiting for something interesting to happen in my life, let me share with you some information about the stray cat colony kept on Canada's Parliament Hill. It's a pretty neat story.

(Note the houses resemble the shape of the Parliament Buildings themselves.)

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated" -
Mahatma Gandhi
We've got a ways to go for sure. But it's a nice start, right at the heart of the country's capital.

We don't have cathouses in DC shaped like the Capitol building. Mostly, they blend in, resembling discreet apartments shared by congressmen to "save travel costs."

This is beautiful. Neat elevated boardwalk.

I've come to like it a lot when my life isn't terribly interesting - but maybe that's just me!
