Thread Name: Folklore: the wampus cat
Subject: RE: Folklore: the wampus cat
Some of my dad's frequent history lessons, were disguised as stories of the "Cattawampus Hoppus". a strange creature with a head like a tiger and a tail like a kangaroo, that could hop great distances. (So he could hop to Philadelphia with Ceasar Rodney, to get him there to sign the Declaration of Independce.) I'm not sure where dad found the idea. But they were fun stories.
