I'm currently out in the Sand Box of the Middle East, where it's common to find random cats around base. I went out to the smoke pit at my normal time on night shift, to find an orange kitten screaming every 2 seconds. Little guy was left in our compound (pretty easy to get past our security forces if you're that small). Someone gave him half a granola bar and a cup of skim milk.
I've never used more strength in my life as I did trying not to touch this kitten that wouldn't stop rubbing against my boot. (They're very strict about not touching the animals)
