Cat Discovers Ancient Roman Tomb

Cat Discovers Ancient Roman Tomb

Mirko Curti’s cat was still pussyfooting around his Rome neighborhood at 10:00 PM. Mr. Curti and a friend ran down Via di Pietralata after it and followed kitty into a grotto, where they found a 2,000-year-old tomb piled with bones. Good thing the pet wasn’t a bone-chewing puppy. The tomb is said to date from between the 1st century BC and 2nd centuries AD.
