It's like a snapshot in history , the tile was discovered in 1969 and stored away along with other finds in Gloucester City Museum until an archaeologist sorting through the store came across it and noticed the paw prints.

The cat is thought to have snuck across the wet tiles which were drying in the sun in about AD100.
The tile, a type called tegula, was used on the roof of a building in what became the Berkeley Street area of modern Gloucester, a spokesman said.
Councillor Lise Noakes, from Gloucester City Council, said it was a "fascinating discovery".

It's nothing earth shattering but it is a glimpse at a random event that happened 2,000 years ago.

I don't know about in the Old World, but in Mexico with saltillo tile that is a little thing that they use sometimes to add character. --If they can get a dog to walk over the freshly blocked out tile.

ETA: (Please forgive me for unthinkingly using the name of that other more beastly animal.)

CLEARLY, cats were tile tradesmen and had a hand, erm paw, in the construction of roman rooftops. Possibly ancient pyramid architects lent to Rome as part of a unilateral slave trade agreement.

Exactly. Cats can do anything. I've seen mine teleport dozens of times, especially when someone treads on their tails.

Nope. Have you lost a cat by that name?

I can ask mine to search the Ninth Density for you if you like.

Pixel isn't the one who's lost.
Pixel always knows exactly where I am.

Just so you know, that cat would be 8017 years old in human years now.

With all the wonderful things we've dug up & found from the past, this comes up. It's strangely fascinating to look at. A random non event that has no bearing on anything but oddly captivating.
Amazing.
