(John over at A Few Good Cats found this and sent it my way: John, you are the best.)
March, 1924: First Lady Grace Coolidge's cat Tige takes a powder from the White House. Local DC radio stations broadcast his disappearance. Oh! Where could he be?
Over at the Navy building, that's where. (Come on, everybody loves a sailor.) So here's guard Benjamin Fink, holding his precious find. Yay! Look at the puss on Tige: "But I wasn't done exploring. Mmf!"
