Ancient Rome has gone to the...cats?

While wandering around Rome yesterday, I stumbled upon this spot called Area Sacra. From what I can gather, the spot was uncovered during some demolition work in 1926, and consists of several temples from, well, some period of ancient Imperial Rome.

What I found amusing here was the cats. The area, being closed off to people and, more importantly, free of bone-crushing vehicles, has become a home to feral cats.
