Meet The Stray Cats Living At The Largo di Torre Argentina Square in Rome, Italy

This ruined square is widely considered to be the site of Julius Caesar's assassination, but that's not the only reason it's famous. After Largo di Torre Argentina was rediscovered and excavated in 1929, it didn't take long for throngs of Rome's famously feral felines to take up residence within the archaelogical treasure. There are now more than 250 cats currently living in or around the site, and tourists and local cat enthusiasts flock to watch them sunbathe and socialize amongst the ruins. In response to the growing feline population, a nearby no-kill shelter called Torre Argentina Cat Sanctuary does its best to keep up with the care of these charming kitties, from tending to sick or wounded individuals to organizing trap-neuter-release programs.
