Become a custodian of cats

#55 of 66 things to do in Rome
The old legend says that when construction works were carried out on Largo di Torre Argentina, underground burrows were excavated and thousands of rodents were released. To overcome the terrible plague bringing the black death, the government of Rome decided to settle down the square with hundreds of homeless cats that live here till nowadays.

On the square there is also a shelter which contains more than 150 pets. You can become their benefactor and help them from anywhere in the world.

In 2001 four-footed inhabitants of Largo di Torre Argentina were officially recognized as a landmark of the city.
