When I was in England in August across the street from Speakers Corner was a memorial to "Animals in War". It was really nice. And people had left flowers there.

No, no, no. Don't you know our soldiers cook kitties for breakfast?! He's probably checking the tenderness on this one as the photog clicked.

jill: So true. Cats are cats no matter where they live.

jenny: So sorry. Don't know what happened, but I think I have fixed it. Please try again.

jenn: I'm a sucker for animals and I think it's nice when humans practice kindness towards them.

bw: Cats... the other other white meat. You must be listening to the main stream media again ;-)

Caption under one of the pictures in the article:

Iraq’s strays inherit land said to have given rise to all domestic cats.

Not Egypt?

The only positive thing about MTP is that he loved cats.

angel: I agree. It's a beautiful photo.

aow: lol! And Hitler loved German Shepherds.

AOW, I don't know if domestic cats originated in Iraq or Egypt, but the term "tabby" comes from the Iraqi city of Attabiah which was noted for its silk trade, and the pattern on the silks were said to resemble the markings on a tabby cat.

Birdwoman, don't worry. The kitten is safe. That's actually an Israeli soldier, although I'm sure there are some in the MSM who'd prefer we not find that out since they'd rather portray the IDF as heartless baby-killers.

The paradoxocal truth is, gentleness only flows from true strength! And humbleness only comes from an absolute grounding in who you are!
That is probably a truer picture of strength than most people realize!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

That's a fantastic picture! Good as=rticle as well--I can't even imagine the problems he faced trying to get those 4 cats.

That photo is politically incorrect!!
Don't you know that all cats HISS at soldiers because all soldiers are mean and kill women and children in the dark of night??
