Largo di Torre Argentina: The square is where Julius Caesar met his untimely end. For over 20 years it has been a safe haven for cats whose population number around 200. The well-cared-for cats prowl the ruins as excavation continues around them, pose for the many tourists who come to see and photograph them, and in general, are less harmful to the ruins than the men who move the earth around them. If you visit Rome, be sure and visit the cats and their lovely surroundings. Want to help the cats without going to Rome? Click here. You can even adopt or sponsor a cat. Yes, I know, we have many homeless cats in the U.S., but the Torre Argentina sanctuary is one of those places that need your help. Suffering knows no boundaries. Trust me, these caretakers do a wonderful service. They should be rewarded.
I hope to photograph the cats once again in the near future.
