Stray Cat Discovers Ancient Roman Tomb

Cats – they’re awesome, stars of the Internet, and now (apparently) making archeological discoveries that would elicit envy from Indiana Jones.

A stray cat is being credited discovering an ancient Roman catacomb last week; after leading Mirko Curti and a friend to the hidden site of the 2,000-year-old find.

The pair reportedly followed the stray cat towards a low rock cliff close to his home near Via di Pietralata in a residential area of the city. “The cat managed to get into a grotto and we followed the sound of its miaowing,” he told the UK Guardian.

Once inside, they discovered a tomb littered with bones and Roman funeral urns. Archaeologists called to the site said the tomb likely dated from between the 1st century BC and the 2nd century AD. They said heavy rains at the start of the week probably caused the rocks guarding the entrance to dislodge.

The bones likely tumbled into the tomb from a separate burial space higher up inside the cliff.

Curti added that finding the tomb, especially so close to his home, was “the most incredible experience” of his life. Somewhere, a cat is saying “you’re welcome, now feed me.”

My Parents Forced Veganism on Me

If vegan parents don’t “force” their vegan values and beliefs on their children, society won’t hesitate to “force” standard American values instead.
