• HISTORY
HUSTLE
Lincoln was a cat lover and brought stray cats
home. Once, an admiral during the siege of
Petersburg saw Lincoln "tenderly caressing three
stray kittens" saying, "kitties, thank God you are
cats, and can't understand this terrible strife that
is going on." He was given two kittens, Tabby
and Dixie, and once fed Tabby from the table at
a formal White House dinner. When his wife
objected, he replied, "If the gold fork was good
enough for former President James Buchanan, I
think it is good enough for Tabby."

    • Imagine being a private in the Union army, and you see President Abraham Lincoln, this absolute beast of a man standing a good foot taller than you, at least, losing his shit over a cat rubbing his leg.

    • For anyone who doesn’t know- James Buchanan was gay and one of the USA presidents. He lived with his gay lover and their adopted daughter. Some ignore this fact because he was shortly engaged to a woman but letters show their relationship was purely platonic. He wrote many letters after his (1/2)
