Twitter Thread: Naval Ship Cats In Tiny Hammocks Throughout History

If you have ever needed proof that the love for cats has been eternal throughout all of history, this is it. This absolutely purrfect twitter thread of pictures of cats chilling in tiny hammocks on naval ships throughout history, collected by @Manglewood on twitter is all the proof you will ever need. 

Cats have been leaving their paw prints throughout history for a long time, we know that, but seeing them being doted on by humans like this is so wholesome, it's makes our heart hurt. No wonder cats domesticated themselves when humans want nothing more than to give them love - and food. Thank you for collecting these pictures, and we can't wait to see some of our hammock kitty pictures added to this collection in the future.

    We love seeing this so much, we cannot even tell you. It is one of the most heartwarming and wholesome things to see people all throughout history love cats to the point of babying them and treating them with so much care.

    The love for cats is universal and eternal, and this twitter thread is the ultimate proof. No matter where you are from, no matter what point in history, even soldiers, possibly at war, will succumb to the purrfection that is cats. Goodness, we love cats so much.
