The Villa Zorayda Museum in St. Augustine, Florida, is home to a 2,400-year-old cursed rug that features the image of a cat and is actually made from the hair of cats that roamed the Nile River.
Museum curator James Byles says the curse states that anyone who walks upon the old rug will fall victim to its wrath.
Though what that wrath entails is clouded in mystery, Byles recalls an incident when the rug was taken off its post on a wall and laid down during renovations. The next day, a dead cat was found on the steps of the museum.
Byles says no one has been brave enough to step on the rug to see if the curse is true, which he can understand since, No one wants to tempt fate. I wouldnt want to either.
