“Excommunicated” Cat Waits to Be Absolved of Feline Sins Outside Temple Gate


nori22

Japanese Twitter user Nori posts photos of cats he meets on the streets on his Twitter account. There’s a cat sitting in front of the gate of a temple in Japan. It looks as if a student came back to ask his master for forgiveness!

The Humiliation of Canossa took place in 1077, when Roman Emperor Henry the 4th traveled to ask for forgiveness after being excommunicated at the gate of Canossa castle.

By the way, the cat was not turned away at the gate after this, but was able to squeeze himself in under the gate!

He still managed to get inside after all!

If there was a cute cat sitting like this in front of the gate, there’s no way you can turn them away, but open the gate and welcome them in!
