The Washington D.C. Demon Cat (nicknamed “DC” by Capitol employees) is said to haunt the government buildings of Washington D.C. It is said that when sighted, the cat looks like a black house cat but its eyes glow; however it is also said that this cat can grow to the size of a lion when startled.
This cat is known to be a bringer of bad fortune and is typically seen before election days and tragedies in the White House. Allegedly, the Demon Cat was seen the night before both the Kennedy and Lincoln assassinations. It was also said to have been seen before the attack on Pearl Harbor, the attempted assassination of Reagan and even the night before the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
