At over 2,400 years arguably, oldest rug in the world made from feline hair! Ancient cats could have looked like the Modern Egyptian Mau.

But what would a stolen Egyptian rug containing human remains be without a curse? Sure enough, it’s said that anyone who sets foot carelessly on the rug will die shortly thereafter. While no human being has stepped on it in recent memory, during the last restoration of the rug, a dead cat is rumored to have been found stretched out on the front steps of the museum.
