The Cats of Rome, aka Latin LOLers

In the two days that we spent exploring the ruins of ancient Rome we saw a lot of cats. There are cats everywhere, just hanging out in the ruins. Some are in areas that are off limits to people, and some are just hanging out along the main paths of the forum and Colosseum. There was a sign at one site that explains that the cats are feral and that they have been vaccinated and neutered and are provided for by the Torre Argentina cat shelter which is funded predominantly by tourist's donations.
The serious part of this entry will tell you to please help the kitties if you have the means to do so.
The not so serious side is going to show you pictures that I took of the cats and captioning them à la I Can Has Cheezburger and Kittens Inspired by Kittens.

Here we have Ceiling Cat shedding his holy light.

Vandal kitteh spells obscenities in his foods while accomplice kitteh watches for the authorities.
