Alamo Cat Graves

Not all defenders of the Alamo wielded swords and muskets during battle. In recent years, some defenders of the feline species have used their claws and fangs to protect the hallowed ground. Mice beware!

There’s much to see at the Alamo, a UNESCO World Heritage Sight. While admiring the picturesque chapel, weapons from the 1836 Battle of the Alamo, and original maps and letters, it would be easy to miss one of the site’s smaller attractions. But peek into the back courtyard, and you’ll find a couple of gravestones honoring cats.
