Can Never Get Enough Kittens (or Puppies)

kitten1.jpgI don’t remember where I got this from. Kitten of the Day, maybe? It just made me think of this great book I’m reading called The Men Who Stare at Goats. It’s about various non-traditional things the military has looked at or is looking at. One thing they considered was having soldiers carrying baby lambs I think it was, when first going into a town or city where a battle might take place, and offering them to the opposing army. It jumped into my head because I was thinking how disarming this little kitten is. Of course, you can’t count on the insane to appreciate a baby anything, but everyone else, maybe?

I recommend this book highly. I’m reading it because I want to learn more about the military’s history of paranormal experiments, but it would be a pleasure for anyone to read. The writer has an extremely subtle, but very funny writing style.
