What loyalty is all about. Your cat wouldn't do that.
Yet another true story from WWII. In the book of Judy by Damien Lewis.
Here is the gunboat dog that became a hero not only within service on a Britsh gunboat during the China years on the Yangtze prior to WWII but later when WWII commenced saving lives and being a POW mascot. This book so impressed me that rather than drone on about Judy. I rather leave it to her memorial placed on her grave.

The above attests to being awarded the British VC/Givens Animal Victoria Cross and being a POW, the only dog
under Japanese captivity, as POW 81A-Medan(her tag).
Its a wonderful book and yet one gleamed from the hell stories of trans-Sumatra RR that got completed on the day the Japanese surrendered. Where countless locals and Allied POWs died during its construction yet would serve no purpose.
Its a good book, folks. -----Willy
