Rome Loves Every Kind of Cat
In Italy, the middle ages gave way to the construction of new buildings. Instead of tearing down old buildings in Rome, new buildings were built on top of older ones. The site of Largo del Torre Argentina is just a small part of the old underground Roman city that is currently being excavated by archaeologists. Supposedly this area is where Julius Caesar met his end. This site also happens to be the home of many cats who would otherwise be homeless. These cats are vaccinated, fed and cared for by cat lovers who work at the shelter. As someone who loves cats I couldn’t help but spend way too much time watching the cats as they prowled through the rocks, crossed bridges and leapt up steps. I even took some pictures of the photogenic felines because who doesn’t enjoy cats (and Reddit karma points)?
Aside from visiting cats, I also got the see the Pantheon (pictures coming soon) and several Jesuit churches.
