There’s an interesting space at 1001 East Capitol St , open Sunday from 1-4. It’s a 3-level, 2-bedroom, 2-bath townhouse that is part of an informal 2 unit condo “development” – albeit with separate address, street entry and no association fees! The entire unit has an airy contemporary feel ; main level is the living room with 2 exposures, high ceilings, hardwood floors, fireplace, built-ins and an open staircase. Upper level is the master bedroom and bath with laundry. Lower level is a beautiful eatin kitchen (must see) plus the second bedroom and full bath. Listed at $729k and new on the market!
The rest of the Capitol Hill open houses are posted here.
You may have seen Bagel and Bigfoot during your last visit to Howl To The Chief. These two kittens have been living there since May, but would much prefer a home of their own – and the sooner the better!
Due to some upcoming restructuring of the grooming space, there will be no place for Bagel and Bigfoot to stay. So they are both in urgent need of a foster or forever home (they like each other but don’t have to be placed together).
Both Bagel and Bigfoot are big, friendly cats. Bigfoot is shy at first but warms up. He a beautiful tuxedo with 6 toes!
Bagel is friendly with people, other cats, and enjoys the company of dogs. In fact, she is a little too comfortable with dogs to be a store cat – she will walk right up and rub all over them whether they like it or not!

We’re in the home stretch guys, and soon your calendars are going to be so packed with fall activities that you’ll barely have a chance to scan the neighborhood for entertainment options.
That’s why we’re here to help, and while the pickings are slim this week, there are few great options to keep you busy.
Feel like joining a team sport that’s not like all the rest? You can do so this Sunday morning. The DC Dragons regularly offer introductory practices for newbies to get a taste of the sport right here on the Anacostia River. If you’re game, you too can join a team of twenty paddlers, who row to the rhythmic beat of the boat’s drummer. The intro practice is at 10:45 a.m. at the Anacostia Community Boathouse. Find out more and register here.
