Today, we post pictures of our favorite felines with funny text to show our love for them. Recently, archaeologists found what’s possibly the oldest tribute to a cat: a 2,000-year-old Nazca Line. Nazca Lines are drawings of plants and animals in the Nazca Desert in Peru. By scraping away the top layer of reddish-brown dirt, ancient Nazca people made yellow-gray lines in the earth, also called geoglyphs.
This 120-foot-long cat geoglyph was a lucky find. While remodeling a lookout point, archaeologists spotted its faint outline on the hillside. It’s the oldest geoglyph discovered so far. “It’s quite striking that we’re still finding new figures, but we also know that there are more to be found,” says Johny Isla, Peru’s chief archaeologist for the Nazca Lines.
