... well, it lived around 1970 and thus appeared to be a little more savage than the average Roman city cat of 2012.
If this is a rule and you extrapolate towards past... you'll get to the beasts that entertained Caesar at the Circus Maximus :-)

Best greetings from Hannover

You must admit Roman felines have always dined on the best of food (martyrs must be simply DELICIOUS), and they must therefore have high expectations . . . it appears that they have learned some patience in the intervening centuries, however.

What is that camel waiting for, by the way?

Jared J. Myers on August 1, 2012

The camel... That's Oliver Medary from Petra/Jordan. He is waiting for the administration of al-Jamaliyya University in Aqaba to give him the certificate for the thesis recently finished. He just cut an ear away for a better fit of the square hat; that's why he looks a bit uncomfortable. No matter; in an hour or so his name will be Dr.O.Medary.

My congratulations to Dr. Medary! I share his nose, perhaps, but not, alas, his doctorate!
