Memorial Day - From KFM Archives


 



Here are some wartime tales from http://www.purr-n-fur.org.uk/featuring/war01.html.     

According to their website, "many of these wartime tales are short and without photos, as they date from decades ago now; information is sparse and snippets have been gleaned from many sources."

Mourka was a  cat during the terrible German siege of Stalingrad (now called  Volgograd) in 1942-43, who risked all his nine lives carrying messages  about German positions from a group of Russian scouts back to their  headquarters. He was probably well rewarded for his efforts and devotion  to duty, as there was a kitchen in the HQ building.

Here is another good story: One war widow had a 10-year-old son to support and a feline companion known simply as Cat. The day came when she could no longer afford to feed Cat, who was told by her grieving mistress that she was  going to have to be 'put to sleep' the following day. Cat seems to have taken in this information, for early next morning she went out and returned later with a dead wild rabbit for the pot. Thereafter, for the duration of the war, Cat's hunting skills earned her keep; three or more times a week she brought in rabbits that were often bigger than she was. She always waited patiently for her share.


Plz cheks our more stories about how cats helped in wartime:
