Largo di Torre Argentina is a square in Rome that hosts four Republican Roman temples, and the remains of Pompey's Theater. The temples on this site were excavated in the late 1920s. Torre Argentina is also a Roman cat sanctuary, staffed by volunteers seven days a week, and caring for more than 250 cats. Sylvia and Lia, are the two organizing volunteers who have given their hearts to this project. When I first visited the Cat Sanctuary in October, Lia introduced me to a newly arrived blind kitten named Emily Bronte. In honor of my daughter Emily, who is a 4th grade teacher in Jersey City, I "adopted" Emily Bronte. Each month I make adonation that covers the cost of the kitten's care and food. Here is a picture of Emily Bronte that I took this afternoon.
