Memorial Day Monday

Happy Memorial Day, Kitties!
Today is the day we honor the brave soldiers, sailors, airmen, and other selfless People who gave their lives to gain and preserve our freedom.
Kitties, did you know that Cats were right there, fighting alongside these courageous People? We were!

Here are two links to some of these brave Cats.
Cats on Land and in the Air
Cats at Sea
Fallen People and Cats, We at the Katnip Lounge "Thank You" for your sacrifice.

  1. Do you celebrate this for WWII or for all wars, or only wars your country fought in??? And how long has this been a holiday?

    I am always curious about celebrations, so hit me with your best info! :-)

    Love to the fuzzies...

  2. Awww thanks for the links. I have a lovely book called "Animals at War" by Jilly Cooper and some amazing pics and stories of all animals (feathered, furry, equine, piggies!) who were involved during WW1 and WW2 (mainly UK). So these links are a great addition for me. thank you.

    Have a happy Memorial Day.
    Take care

  4. Thank you for this reminder. We also want to think quietly of all the animals left with no homes and humans, and humans left with no animals because of this horrible war thing that wish the world could live without

  6. Cool. We'll have to check out the links. To Au and Target -- Memorial Day honors all people (and animals) who died in their nation's service, no matter what war. I think it became an official holiday in 1868 but was unofficially celebrated before then. It was originally called Decoration Day, when the graves were decorated in remembrance.

  18. Great cat war stories...sad that many lived short lives, but they surely were helpful in the whole scheme of things as we all know that they bring so much comfort to the people that live with them. Purrs, Lautrec and Tiny
