Dogs have been getting a lot of credit for their all around bad ass-ness in Operation Kill bin Laden but what about cats!? They're way smarter than dogs! And like super quick, crafty and lulz-bringing too! Couldn't the US Military find some use for that sort of feline intelligence?
Turns out, they did! Just check out this Slate Gallery of cats storming Normandy, cats acting like paratroopers except with no parachute, cats spying in the night without night vision, and much, much more. What an illustrious military career cats have had! I can't believe it's been kept under wraps for so long*. [Slate]
*Yeah, we know. So good Slate, so good.
