Cute Overload :D
Arne found this on Imgur/Reddit. “A U.S. Marine shares his water canteen with a kitten found under a burned-out Japanese tank during a break in the fighting on Tarawa. November, 1943. USNI Photo.”
There is water coming out of my eyes. 🙂
Oh, that makes two of us. If that doesn’t just melt your heart!!!
Big ole tough Marine vs. kitteh…no contest. Teh kyut always wins!
So sweet! I hope that Marine survived the war and went on to be a great dad to human and animal babies!
When you look for “vintage animuhls” on the interwebs (as you do), there seems to be no end to the soldiers at war with kitties/puppies (and the occasional goat and joey) category. From every war! There’s some psychology involved there… A need for something good and pure (sweet anumuhls) when they find themselves in a demoralizing, inhuman situation that’s impossible to deal with? It seems universal too, across cultures. It always gives me the something-in-my-eyes feels… Just look at where this poor soldier (and the kitten) finds himself, its like Armageddon! Is he giving the kitteh water from his flask? ❤ [sneef]
They needed to drive that tank very slowly to Les Schwab! 🙂
The one constant of war is that all sides are made up of young men (and sometimes women!) far from home, spending their formative years facing death on a daily basis. Kittens serve as a reminder that no matter the country or the ideology, we’re all human. You can find pictures of soldiers from any nation since the invention of cameras playing with kittens. And I mean *literally* any nation.
Kitten…kitten never changes.
During a Black Lives Matter Riot,my cousin saw a officer pick up a scared kitten and safely took it to a rescue shelter.
Things that arent trying to kill you,or get you killed are cute?
AWW 😦 I wonder if that dear sweet kitty and the solider who gave water to him/her survived the war 😦
