FTFA: In 1898, after the Capitol Building was damaged by a gas explosion, paw prints and the initials "DC" - speculated to mean "demon cat" - appeared in the concrete poured to repair the Small Senate Rotunda.

What else could "DC" stand for?! Demon cat is the only possible explanation here.

Nain Rouge? That's no demon, just a cat.

The so-called demon cat is actually quite small, and it appears after calamities, not before. It's also known to say the word "Good" in a very sarcastic voice not unlike Aubrey Plaza's.

I don't remember the letters, but I do recall on a tour of the capital by my senator at the time pointing out the prints, although I think they said it was in hewn stone, concrete would make much more sense though.

Even a demon cat needs to be taught about boundaries. You have to start them young

Most capital hill staffers who've seen the demon cat are somewhat disappointed by its appearance.  Generally, they want the cat to come back, but only with the visible butthole.

There is allegedly one in my State Capitol building.

Sounds more like "see this pattern? I'm gonna stare at it until the drugs wear off and be all nostradumbass to tour goers to give them something interesting to think about before they go back home on the school bus".

Man, is this barely-strung together drivel what passes for 'spooky' these days? A 'ghost cat' appears in DC and gets bigger? That's it?

Of course, sometimes the appearance of a cat signals disaster because its appearance IS the disaster.

"Its last notable sighting was in 1963, just before the assassination of JFK - there were no reports of it being seen prior to more recent national crises like the  January 6 attack on the Capitol."

Maybe it's waiting for a REAL national crisis? Although neither of those really endangered the US.

And "Demon Cat" rhymes with "Demon Crat" and that starts with D and that rhymes with P and that stands for Pool! This can only mean that Ron Howard is the leader of the Illuminati, and he runs it from the basement of a Domino's in Gary, Indiana!

Demon cat in a banner that looks like the Ukrainian flag. This means something.

I lived in DC for almost ten years and know for a fact that it's actually a cat-sized demon elephant.  Everyone just steps over it when it's encountered.

If the Clintons had just made Socks mark Newt's office, we could have driven the demon cat away.

Maybe someone should ask Mab why the hell Cat Sith has been hanging around DC. Was he her contact with the Librum Bellum?

Hmmm, demon cat that predicts chaos and havoc. Sounds like the furry little assholes running through my house at the moment.

Lots of chaos but the only destruction this morning was on my poor apple tart that was knocked to the floor and smashed again the box lid.

Still ate it :)

Does it appear every time there's a Furry convention in town?

Stoopid hoomans. The cat isn't a demon. She's an incarnation from Ceiling Cat (who loves us and wants us to be happy) trying to warn us. She grows to the size of an elephant in an attempt to make us SEE her since hoomans are so incredibly blind.

while in 1935 the Post reported after another sighting that the cat's eyes "glow with the all the hue and ferocity of the headlights of a fire engine."

Relax. It's probably just the Catbus.

I grew up in Detroit and I never heard of Nain Rouge. Have any Farkers in the Detroit area heard of it before now? I Googled it and wonder why I haven't heard of this before.

Can confirm, that's totally a cat thing to do.

Was the "demon cat" in the room on January 6th? (elephant sized?)

Cats get such a bad reputation. They're superior to dogs because if a pack of cats goes feral, they don't gang up and attack humans.

Don't know where the fark the Demon Cat has been the last few years. Lazy sumbiatch should have shown up at least a couple of times.

You kid, but I can see someone taking that very statement and running to post it online. The scary part is that 33% of Americans would believe it without question. That is the biggest problem in the country right now.

Born/raised Detroiter here (actual Detroit, as in Fenkell and Greenfield), I left in 87. Founder Dave Krieger was a bud growing up in the late 70s/80s. AMA.

Saw him last year and was gifted a couple Nain Rouge books. The foreword to "Things I Do in Detroit" is extremely on point for what the place was like. Recommend.

Very true. The goal is to make people realize the absurdity. This initials and numbers crap is like astrology was when I was a kid. And the "mind readers" and spoon benders as I got older. We sure could use a thousand or so guys like the Amazing Randy to call out and expose this crap for what it is.
