Popular among those stationed at Rothwesten was the Red Cat and the Gray Cat.
I think the two businesses were owned by the same people and were located next to each other on the Fulda River not far from the town of Simmershausen.

Bill Marts took this one and the next two while on a recent trip to the area.



He wrote that he took a cruise from Hann Münden to Kassel and was surprised to find an old hangout along the way.


I suspect his boat ride was on the steamer Elsa as seen in the next photo.




Jim Ward sent this one of the Dampfer Elsa docked at the Graue Katze.


Irene Moore contributed this one and the next two taken by her dad, Gil Matherne.



Taken on a rainy day.
