Soldiers and Cats
It is Remembrance Sunday in the UK today, a time to remember those who fought and died so we – cats included – could live the lives we do today.
We found this amazing video of soldiers serving in Afghanistan in the modern era – and the cats they have adopted to keep them company.
We think the first cat looks just like Archie!
Apparently, the military leadership turns a blind eye to this practice, even though regulations specifically prohibit them. They go by names like Smoke, Bacon, Mickey Blue Eyes and Butterscotch, and they can be coerced with as little as a pat on the head, a scratch behind the ears or a tasty treat – which sounds just purrrr-fect to us!
