Hopefully you can access this link, but if not, then google "The 15th century equivalent of your cat walking on your keyboard" that was in The Atlantic.

MOL, dat are too funny!
Hah! Bet that cat got some ink on the furniture and the floor, too!
No doubt! I wonder if the pawprints were made during the writing, or after the manuscript was finished? If during, it shows a sense of humor and whimsey on the part of the scribe, otherwise you think he would have recopied the page. Of course, I suppose there's the possibility that paper was at a premium - not even one sheet could afford to be discarded.
That is super super cool!!! Love history!
Just thank those could be putty prints from an ancestor.
A great great great great great great great great great, aw heck...too many greats to fit on this comment box - Grandma Moggie!
