2,000-year-old feline footprint found in ancient tile An archaeologist discovered a paw print from a cat in a 2,000-year-old roof tile found in Gloucester, England. The tile was recovered in 1969 but the print was only recently identified. The tegula tile dried in the sun, but not before a cat walked across it. Footprints from dogs, humans and even a pig have been found in ancient tiles, but cat prints are uncommon. BBC (7/28)
