Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia is hosting an exhibit in honor of the 60 cats it employs to protect paintings against mice and rats!
The Museum has employed the cats dating back to its founding in 1764, and is celebrating Hermitage Cat Day since 1998, but this is the first time the event was marked by a separate art exhibit.
The museum hosted a children's contest for cat drawings and compiled a "Book of Records of Hermitage Cats" chronicling the felines at the museum.

A stray cat in Rome discovered an ancient Roman catacomb! A couple of kids followed the feline into a tomb that dates back more than 2,000 years. The cat hurried into a cavern near a limestone rock cliff, and the kids managed to enter the cave's small opening. Once inside they realized that the cat led them into a tomb littered with human bones and surrounded by ancient Roman funeral urns!
