Readers of Kendra Kandlestar know all about the Elder Stone and the Council of Elders. Well, yesterday, I toured around Canada’s version of the Elder Stone — Parliament Hill. As enamored as I was with the architecture and history of these beautiful grounds (more on that in future posts) what completely fascinated me were the cats.
Yes, the cats.
Or, to be more precise, the Parliamentary Cats. This is essentially a group of stray cats who live in a sanctuary next to the Parliament buildings. No one owns them—they essentially live free and wild, hanging out in a sort of cat hotel. They seem a pretty happy bunch and two thoughts occurred to me as watched them laze in the sun and soak up attention from the visitors.
One, my cat would LOVE this place.
Two, how come no one has written a children’s book about these cats yet?
