Long before the Internet, people loved cats and enjoyed sharing pictures and stories about cats. People back in the medical days probably painted and shared oil paintings of cats, but in 1933, a newspaper story about a cat made headlines when the cat adopted a motherless chick on Easter.

The cat, named Ginger, had a kitten of its own but also adopted a baby chick. This story shows that no matter what the time or place, people still love cats. Perhaps if we tapped into humanity’s universal love for cats, we might be able to stop many of the senseless wars that humans perpetuate.
