Vintage "cats & sailing" images dating 1890s-1950s; here's 2nd batch (1st batch in previous page, don't miss it police); pay attention that few cats sleep in specially built to them hammocks:

The cat pic No.12 in Reply 375 depicts WWII veteran cat Pooley who'd been given real medals & badges. Pic's date: 1959. Cat age: 15 yrs old. To the topic, here's history material about 2 cats who fought WWII, everybody set aside things you do to read it, it's really interesting & proves that cats can be jolly heroic, it's must-read: http://www.popularsocialscience.com/2013/03/01/the-cats-that-fought-in-world-war-ii-the-swasticats/

It's really disturbing to see people being interested in rocky pimple's book & keeping replying to boring cliched "nothing new" type posts by some dunce "Reynaldo", whilst this nice thread isn't replied to. So... Carl/ Dennis punched by buncha losers is better than seeing cat pics/ youtube vids/ reading material? "Lovely".

Here's new cute & funny clip, esp. at 1:47 the look in cat's face is priceless: www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFPKq1TDsXc

Great pics! I like the first posted.
Thanks. At least smb. cares. It's not fair to give attention to rocky pimple/ his weirdo publisher with predictable non-revelatory posts than sweet important thread like Cats. Thanks again.

Love cats. I like black and white photography. My favorites are cats sleeping in hammocks, very cute, and the white cat in the previous page looking up at the brassiere hanging that could fill 5 female busts simultaneously. Thanks for share.
Thanks to you. Nice comments. It's easy to tell which is favorite pics, yet the other people can't do it apparently, even posters who got cats. Btw agree about b&w, it's fave pastime to study retro pics in b&w & sepia. Jolly interesting.

Checked out this thread. Cool pictures of cats. Loved the story about Mourka and the other day doing their part during the horrible Battle of Stalingrad.
My oldest sister gave me a postcard she had bought while in London a few weeks back. It's a black and white picture of a kitten relaxing on a hammock.
The caption reads: "The kitten mascot of the aircraft carrier HMS Eagle in the hammock made for her by the ship's sailmaker."
 Can't figure out how to post it from my Kindle Fire Tablet, but it's similar to the other pictures of the hammock kitties (difference being that only the kitten is in the picture, no people).

Edit: changed avatar briefly so that pic could be seen.

Which cat pics did you like the best? It's fun when I share pics, that people tell which they liked exactly. You know, that's the idea. Would like to see postcard, can't you show it via desktop? Forget tablet/ Kindle-sth. Ta in advance.

Edit to N's edit: It's blurry, can't see cat's face well which is important. Can then you do by things I said?

I don't have access to a desktop right now. She's just a regular sweet little kitten.
I'll try to get access to a computer but that might be a while.

The favorite pics would be the cat sleeping on the caps; that's what my cats would do.
The other fave is the cat up on the ladder, watching the guy at work (or is the guy playing with the cat?)

Roger.

It's the guy teaching cat to use ladder. Each pic in the site captioned & dated. I'd written the general timeline instead (since 18.. to 19..).

I would figure that it would be a lot easier for kitty to go up the ladder then to come down.

Caption says the sailor teaches cat to use ladder, it doesn't tell up/ down detail. It's serious site, about sailing with cats, you'd seen pic with cats trained to do things dressed as nurses, Mississippi. They helped people in ships. It isn't fun pic site with goofy captions made by Internet users. Pics shared here with captions to be believed 100%. If you doubt, you can. But it's true history.

Huh??
I guess you misunderstood me. I wasn't questioning whether it was a serious site.
Was simply pointing out that cats have an easier time climbing up things then coming down them. And I figure that a ladder would be particularly difficult. So I assume that the sailor helped the kitty get down. Then after a while the cat got the hang of it and went up and down with no problem.

Should've clarified - the guy teaches cat to use ladder with good reason. Usually cats freely do what they want. But these cats traveling with sailors can't randomly get into trouble, climb in ladders etc. They're trained cats. You'd seen pic here with cat hanging high up above, nearly can't be seen where's cat in it. Its caption is "radiocat". The cat we discuss is trained to use ladder (& likely many things else in the ship) as being in the sailors' team. Cats in the ship're assigned to do tasks, they don't tag along to just bring luck, be sailors' play buddies in free time. They basically work in the ship.
