Images: Cats in wartime with their soldier companions

Cats have served in conflicts alongside men and women for thousands of years. Here are images of army cats, navy cats, and cats who were befriended by soldiers stationed far from home.

The pics are from WWI and WWII, with soldiers and sailors from various countries. The slideshow includes more recent images from this new century’s conflicts, alongside  vintage photos.

  1. It is great to see really brave men who have big hearts. I hope that cats in the pictures all got good homes. Good luck and come home.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing these photos with us. It is so nice to see them comforting our soldiers during their time of stress and conflict also. I just love them. Maybe you also can do one with the current wars also for us to see.

  3. Hi Anne, there are images from the current conflicts in the slideshow. I admit; this could have been better done.
