Mirko Curti and a friend were chasing the stray cat at 10 pm on Tuesday when it reportedly scampered towards a low tufa rock cliff close to Mr. Curti’s home near Via di Pietralata in one of Rome’s residential areas. “The cat managed to get into a grotto and we followed the sounds of its meowing,” Mr. Curti said.
