After being rescued from a local animal shelter, a gray and white cat nicknamed Captain has been adopted by the Barksdale Air Force base in Louisiana. In addition to her mice-chasing and pet-therapy duties, Captain boosts morale.
“Captain is a really good cat, and I don’t even like cats,” Senior Airman Trey McClain, 2nd Medical Group diagnostic imaging technician and Honor Guard Airman, said in a 2017 2nd Bomb Wing news release. “I tried to hate her, but it was impossible. She is here for everybody, and we enjoy seeing her around.”
If every military unit adopted a cat, no one would want to fight each other in fear of hurting the cat. Perhaps cats could bring peace to the world after all.
