Felines have contributed to the militaries of the world, but cats can’t compete with dogs when it comes to assisting men and women in uniform. I did write about Simon, who killed rats on a Royal Navy ship, but otherwise the contribution of cats during conflict is limited to companionship. For example, Nina the bunker kitten. The photo indicates that playing with her was a distraction from the horrors of war for the German soldiers stationed near Narva, Estonia in 1944. The plate identifying her on the picture is said to be in Dutch, which might indicate where the human occupants of the bunker were from. Next: Draft Doggies.
