Tabby Refuses to Retreat

undated U.S. Army Air Corps photograph

Sgt. B.A. Traxler, squadron "Top Kick" at the Central Instructors' School at Randolph Field, Texas, ponders what to do about a stray mother cat and family. Without benefit of proper military channels — first endorsement, gate pass, or official permission — she crept into a private's wall locker and augmented the squadron with three additional members. At inspection time, she still defied military attempts to move her and her kitties.
