If only, if only.
War Kitties in Hammocks
Carriers and other vessels got infested with rodents. So cats were not just moral boosters (which they very much were) they were also working members of the crew. Some have even been immortalized for surviving multiple attacks on their ships, etc. Military dogs have been recognized for the important roles they’ve played but I think cats kinda get lost in the shuffle of military animals sometimes.
Everyone, shut up a minute.
CATS IN HAMMOCKS ON BOATS

Thank you President Obama, the world is safe now!
Madeline would rather go to school, but for two years she has been working. Every day she rows her wooden skiff out into Gaza’s heavily patrolled waters. Her father, a fisherman himself, was suddenly struck with palsy and cannot fish anymore. Since she is 16 years old and the eldest child, she has to assume the role of feeding her family.
Madeleine manages to make her way in a male-dominated world. In the Gaza strip, women rarely venture to the sea, even just to swim. Her Brothers Qaid and Karim, and her sister Rim help her when they are not at school.
