I know what you’re thinking … but no.
It looks like a pleasant, ordinary house, right? Cast your eyes up to the roofline. Notice anything?
The Cat House gets its name from the two black felines balanced on the tip tops of its towers. They were designed a century ago as an insult to cause trouble … and it worked.
The owner of the house was enraged because he had been snubbed and denied membership in the prestigious Great Guild across the street. So he decided to get even.
He had the cats installed with their backsides aimed directly at the Guild, as an insult to his enemies.
Needless to say, offense was taken, and a court battle ensued. Eventually he was admitted to the Guild, so he turned the cats back around.
So the morale of the story is: Be careful what you wish for the next time you’re asked to choose “heads or tails”!
