Medieval Cats

First Medieval Dogs, and now I present Medieval Cats!! Our feline friends were domesticated much later than dogs, around 7500 BC. Though some would argue that they domesticated us.

Hopefully, years from now, this medieval cats collection will have grown! For now, I think it was worth it just for the medieval cat licking his butt hole next to Jesus.
