Check out this 15th Century manuscript. Notice anything familiar? In totally-non-shocking-news-of-the-day, it turns out cats have been walking on whatever you're writing since the dawn of time. Emir O. Filipovic of the University of Sarajevo's History Department discovered the medieval kitty prints.

We can only assume that somewhere, beyond the reach of time, in a small ancient monastery in the mountains, the muffled sounds of "SNOWBALL, OFF. OFF. DOWN. GET DOWN, SNOWBALL. BAD KITTY. DAMNIT, SNOWBALL GO SOMEWHERE ELSE," carry across the medieval vales and valleys.

More than 65 kittehs live underneath St. Petersburg's Hermitage Museum. Their mission? To protect the museum's precious artwork from rodents with an indiscriminate taste for all things chewable. They are, of course, fed and cared for by a dedicated staff, and other job perks include free admission to one of the world's most prestigious museums. The cats employed today are the latest in a line of feline workers that stretches back more than 200 years. Think of that the next time you look over at your lazy fluffball, asleep in a sunbeam.
