Forget 'City of Light,' it's time to visit the 'City of Cats'

  Forget 'City of Light,' it's time to visit the 'City of Cats' Forget 'City of Light,' it's time to visit the 'City of Cats'However why are there so many 'cats' in La Romieu? To answer this question, you have to look back in time to 1342 when the legend of "Angeline's Cats" was born. According to the legend during a famine in the 14th century a little girl was allowed to keep two cats by her parents, on the condition that they stay hidden - all of the other village cats have been eaten by the starving residents. However, with the disappearance of the cats, rats took over the village and started eating all of the remaining crops. The girl released her cats and they quickly killed off all of the rats.

Jay and Kateri Schwandt, of Rockford, Michigan , have determined that they will wait until April, when their 14 th child is born, to learn its sex. Dwayne Johnson admits that he wants a son as he prepares to welcome his third daughter He's set to have his third child any day now.

"For us, it is about the baby, about the miracle of life," Kateri told TODAY Parents in February. "It's not about having a girl."

On Thursday, the Schwandts spent the day introducing baby Finley to his many "super excited" brothers. The baby's unique middle name was inspired by a story Kateri's father told the couple before he passed away about eight years ago. (And, no, it has nothing to do with the Wisconsin city spelled the same way, Sheboygan.)

In the story, a Native American chief was also the father to many boys, but he was certain his last baby was going to be a girl. According to the tale, when that baby also turned out to be a boy, the chief named the baby Sheboygan, because "she is a boy again."

The Schwandts tossed around the idea of using the name for several of their other sons, Jay said, but since they are pretty sure this is their last baby, they decided to go for it and use the name. "We figured, what the heck?" he said. "People think we are crazy anyway."
