Darn it IkNOwSTuff, you beat me to it!


OP I'm surprised they don't find more cat prints in other ancient documents. I wonder if there are cat prints on some of the ancient Egyptian papyrus scrolls?

Thats a good question, I have never checked into it...
When I was doing an image search on this I did come across a lot of medieval images
with cats in them....

I love it! Medieval kitty says it shall turn your book into its personal sidewalk.

This entire video is a MUST SEE but the part relevant to this thread is at 34 seconds.

Hahaha that's awesome.

And you know.. you just know, that even back then, that cat was saying "yeah yeah, fetch me a mouse." casual as you like, all over the manuscripts. haha..

I agree. It was probably dinner time and the dude wasn't paying attention. My cats make life hell if I work past dinner - especially the Siamese

Cats have this uncanny knack for finding you concentrating and interrupting you,
in a way that is hard to ignore, and hard to resist!

this makes me so damned happy! i immediately began to imagine what this kitty may have looked like (boy or girl? orange or tabby?) i am also guessing that the kitty was well loved and their person was likely tickled by the feline contribution. "cat, ye have left thine mark and now 'tis time for a treat".

I think we need to do an in-depth analysis of the kitty prints to see who the culprit really is.

Perhaps lifting the prints and discovering DNA?

Only then will we discover the true evildoers of times past.


Peace

Kitties have always been suspect IMO.

Damn little evil, furry, cute, fuzzy demons that piss all over the rugs, scratch your valuables and absolutely destroy any manliness us men may have remaining.

GODS...they are not!


Peace
