The Capitol Building
ghost stories surround the U.S. Capitol Building. The building has a very violent history. Constructed by slave labor, experiencing
two major fires, along with several men being shot and killed have left this building filled with several ghosts.
The Founder has spoke with several people who have worked in this building, and many people have little
known stories to tell. Instead of writing about all the many well know stories about the Capitol (recurring blood stains,
dancing statues, and running assassins), let's hear from the regular people and what they have to say: About five years ago,
a police woman was working third shift. She went into the lounge to take a nap on her lunch hour. She was shoved by useen
hands off the sofa and onto the floor. Some artisons in the Capitol were observing a new mannequin put into a large exhibit
tank containing a desk and chair. The mannequin was hunched over the desk sitting in the chair. Suddenly the figure simply
vanished. There never was a mannequin. Many people in the Capitol Building feel an omnious presence follow them around to
the point they are almost running from certain hallways. They see nothing, however. These are interesting stories, but nothing
compared to the most notorious figure on Capitol Hill, the infamous Demon Cat.
The Myth of the Demon Cat
No ghostly tour of Capitol Hill could be completed without mention of the Demon Cat. This mysterious beast is known for being
the most popular, unusual and dangerous "creature" in the city.
Scenario: a police officer is walking his rounds in the basement of the Capitol, he sees a small black cat. The policeman
is puzzled. As the cat approaches him it grows, and has glowing eyes. The man is frozen in fear, and as the growing cat approaches
him it lunges at him, and the victim passes out in fright. The next day a president gets assassinated. This is a SCENARIO
of what happens with the demon cat. No event happened EXACTLY this way, but there are some common traits of this beast:
It chooses its victims wisely, often late workers and night watchmen, but now always.
It hangs around Congress. The director interviewed a man who saw and heard a black cat grow behind a Congressional building.
When he got too close to the building, the cat vanished, and two police officer nearly arrested him for getting to close to
a building occupied by Congress. This building was NOT the Capitol.
The sightings tend to follow a national tragedy or change of office. If this is the case, this beast should be very active
right now. Of course, snooping around the Capitol is not a good idea. However, we do have some leads on this case, and will
post whatever data we find.
It is NOT recommended to call the Capitol building and ask the staff about the Demon Cat. Most staff know nothing about it,
or refuse to talk about it. In addition, the Capitol is under very tight security.
Did the Demon cat appear on 9/10? Maybe, maybe not. Witnesses tend not to speak about these things for fear of being considered
insane, especially in security backgrounds. DCMAG will do our best to find out if this cat is still seen.
Food for thought, Is the cat really bad? Yes, it terrifies people, but it also warns of impending disasters as well. It's
almost like the Banshee or Black Angus. Regardless, its terrifying to see. Chances are this is a myth, as it did not appear
before the last presidential election, 9/11, or the shootings.
We'll keep you posted!
