•A Cat’s job during WW2•
-Man’s best friend during WW2 may have been a dog, but also cats who were brave enough not to sleep through the whole thing. Cats are widely forgotten during history when it comes to war, they did risk their nine lives you know!
A popular cat in WW2 named “Fritz” fought on the German side in the Second Motorcycle Company of the Infantry Division. Whoever fired the machine gun near Fritz was helped by him because he was the “feeder” or “second.” He basically helped feed the bullets in the machine gun.
Some cats such as “Mourka” fought on the Soviet side. They helped with carrying messages to Soviet positions across enemy lines. Another feline friend with furtive plans was “The Stalingrad Battle Cat” who carried propaganda leaflets to the Germans.
Without these little feline friends with cute little paws, our battle against our enemies may have been alittle different. They didn’t have to get up off the couch, they didn’t have to stop sleeping to fight in our war, but they did. They showed us they are only lazy when they want to be. Next time you see your little lazy cat named “Bob,” just know he’s capable of saving the world.
