Earlier this year, Reddit user bmkerce uploaded this heartwarming photo with himself and a stray kitten sharing a meal in Afghanistan in 2010, when bmkerce was deployed with the US Marines. He returned home and re-entered civilian life last July.
In response to questions from commenters, bmkerce said:
“I’m sorry to say we had to leave the kitten behind. Yes it was just a stray that found us, he felt like a pet to my self and the squad of 13 I was in. It was sad to leave him, but sadly there was nothing I could do.”
“I really cant remember what it was I was eating, but the kitten sure liked it.”
