Daily mail ^ | 27th January 2012 | David Baker

Bringing old homes up to scratch is nothing out of the ordinary for property renovators Andrew and George Hartley,

But this professional couple nearly jumped out their skin when greeted by their most recent form of preservation - as a mummified cat fell on them.

The couple got a face full of the ancient feline as they removed ceilings from an 18th century property in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire.

There is an old school, 1700’s, near me that had a mummified cat under it. It was thought to be good luck. Goodness knows why!

It was probably once someone’s beloved, beautiful kitty; just as pretty as our kitty kats that we have now. I’ll bet the kitty’s owner wondered what ever happened to her cat. Sad.

That’s a way bigger cat than just a housecat.

Otherwise it’d be in the house, snacking in the kitchen rather than hiding out in the attic. Looks like an eastern Bobcat.

And she doesn’t look like an ‘Andrew’ or ‘George’, either.

Agreed.

Hopefully tho, it had a long life, and just laid down, and went to sleep.
