Among the ruins of an empire, one of the things that the city of Rome is
best known for is the abundance of stray cats. They inhabit such
historical places as the Coliseum. Next to the sacred ruins of the Largo
di Torre Argentina, where Brutus is believed to have stabbed Caesar, is
a popular no-kill cat shelter. Now the archaeologists are demanding
that the shelter close and the volunteers who run the shelter are
refusing to budge.
