An archaeologist at the Gloucester City Museum was examining ancient Roman roof tiles from 100 AD when he came across a fragment that contained a cat’s paw print. According to the BBC, the tile is called tegula, and it was commonly used on the roofs of buildings at the time.

I can just imagine the nonchalant feline, casually strolling across a section of freshly laid tile and leaving behind a reminder that cats don’t, and have never, cared.
