Valentin Hirsch, 40, a tattoo artist in Bistrica, Transylvania, northern Romania, was cleaning his late grandmother’s house with his brother Adrian. Then they found something strange.
Then Valentin said. “While cleaning the basement, I noticed that part of the wall was missing, so I decided to break it down to see what was behind it.” He seemed curious, trying to see behind the wall. Valentine continues to say.
“At first I thought it might be a hidden room, but as I broke down the wall I realized there was something like a small animal’s head. I thought it was a tiger statue, but it was illuminated by light. “When I tried it, I was not sure what kind of animal it was.”
“I thought it was a statue until I actually touched it, but when I took it off the wall, it was so light that it was something else. I guessed. ”
After that, Valentin, who finally understood that the cat was mummified, said: “How was the cat put in this place, who installed it, who is the owner of the house, etc.”
Valentine’s grandmother’s house was built in 1921. Valentin looked at the cadastre to find out about the owners of the past, but said he could not get any useful information. “The next time I go to my grandmother’s house, I want to take a closer look at the basement,” said Valentin.
