from a year ago: cats in iraq

All the veterinarians were gone, so nobody could spay and neuter them. They only needed to hear a bomb blast once before they weren't surprised by the sound any more. Yet their vulnerability and need for care and love helped humanize the experience of reporting the War in Iraq.

Read "What Cats Know About War," by John F. Burns, from The New York Times of October 14 2007.

A most interesting article Curator. I am glad some of the cats made it to England, if only all could have been so lucky.
