What was Abraham Lincoln's only hobby?

  • Hiking
  • Cards
  • Cats correct

    According to his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, President Lincoln's only hobby was cats. One age-old tale of Lincoln happened when he visited General Grant at City Point, Virginia in 1865. The Civil War was near an end and Lincoln and Grant were faced with bringing a country that had been divided back together. Lincoln could have gone to a pub, or he could have stayed home and prayed, but what did he do instead? He found three orphaned kittens and carried them around City Point until he found them a home. Kind of like that scene in Love Actually where Prime Minister Hugh Grant knocks door-to-door looking for his girlfriend, except with cats, so it's even more purrfect.
