Rules breach not cat’s meow

Regarding the Feb. 3 article “Photo of GI with cat in Kuwait goes viral” and the accompanying photo of the soldier sleeping with the cat: Let me see if have the facts correct:

1) General Order No. 1 prohibits adopting pets or mascots, etc. This was apparently ignored.

2) The commander of the unit wanted the cat euthanized, but the company XO disregarded/ignored/disobeyed (take your pick) the commander’s intent.

3) “The soldiers weren’t supposed to feed the cat ... but the soldiers did anyway.”

Anyone else see a problem here?
