Which kitty icon to use!!? They are all so cute! ...Can't pick ...must pick, ARGH!

OMG, I just read about Ship's cats and in particular the short biographies of some on Wikipedia. A couple of my favourites were:

Convoy; was duly listed in the ship's book and provided with a full kit, including a tiny hammock where he would sleep

U-Boat; [he] would take ‘shore leave’ whenever his ship came into port. He would spend days on shore, usually returning only just before his ship sailed. One day, U-boat failed to return in time for roll call and his ship was forced to sail. As she pulled away from the quay, U-boat was seen running down the dock after the departing ship. He made a death-defying leap onto the ship and succeeded in making it aboard.

and Simon; was appointed to the rank of 'Able Seacat' Simon... [and] was posthumously awarded the Dickin Medal, the only cat to ever earn the award, and was buried with full naval honours.

SO CUTE!! I want to live on a ship with a cat! tee hee!! awwww, so cute! awwww. I want to read more stories about brave cats!
