You will be bound to come across the cat house whilst strolling round Riga. It is the big yellow one on one corner of a square with a couple of cats on the roof and a couple of restaurants at street level. Nothing particularly exciting about the house or it's architecture but the story behind the cats is amusing. The house is in close proximity to the Great Guild and Little Guild and the hierarchy upset the merchant who lived in the big yellow house. So he had a couple of cat figures put on two conical towers and faced their backsides towards the Great Guild and the Little Guild. This upset the hierarchy but there was nothing they could do about it, but it should be noted the cats actually face the GG and LG now. There are numerous tacky ornaments, clothes and fridge magnets on sale around Riga bearing some sort of effigy of the black cats..
