This soldier is awesome as he feeds a stray kitten in a foreign land. I was writing a page about America’s Veterans Day and spotted this photograph and very soon afterwards I noticed the man’s name which for me, being a cat lover, provoked me into adding the words to the image. Great guy. Tender heart. He must love animals and the vulnerable and there is nothing more vulnerable than a stray kitten in a war zone.

Looking closely, I can see that the kitten appears to be blind. Look at the eyes. This looks like a URI that has become a bacterial infection which as blinded the kitten. It is very common in developing countries and in stray or feral cats. If you click on this link you’ll see the worst bacterial eye infection in a young cat that you will ever see.
