Despite his ordeal, Romeo ran around wagging his tail, stopping only to be patted and to let a firefighter inspect his paw. A local official told Reuters Romeo was in good health.
Earlier this week a cat called Joy was rescued from the wreckage of another house in Amatrice, six days after the disaster.
