If you hover on the cat sitting on a bench near your tank in new "garage", there's a nice story about a cat named Sally during WW2, along with a photo of a tabby lying on a tank.

Of course I immediately tried to google more about this brave feline, but couldn't find anything with keywords cat, sally and ww2.

 

Any1 has some more info about Sally, if this is a true story?

Links will be appreciated.

Tnx!

Yes and no. Because that's just more on the WG map team liking cats. As some maps are full of them. Minsk having the most spread around.

You cant have too many dogs and cats! Well, I suppose you could, there might be 5000 per scene, and that would be excessive.

I saw none so far, with SD graphics.

Do I need HD or some special FX setting?

Or where should I look?

Well, they are not easy to spot. Province has a cat sitting on a platform behind the hill on the southeast corner of the map, you need to cliff dive to find it. There is also a cat inside the white building in the middle of the 8 lane on Province. Minks has a few in some of the windows near the South spawn. There are two sitting in one of the carts on the Ferris wheel. One should still be on the building on the south side of the middle at around H7 ish just to name a few. 

 

But the hardest one to spot... are the two at the top of the radio tower.

Under the new physics, do cats block shells?

The one on the left might not be there anymore tho, since it seems to be the stuffed one that we have now in the garage.

Hard to tell, with a burrowing, nocturnal animal... The Steppes and Prokhorovka maps might be full of hamster dens... :popcorn:

She's a black cat aged 9, currently located on top of the tumbledryer in our utility room, she usually stays there most of the day hiding from a couple of our dogs.
Hope that helps.

Yes, the cat in the garage is the most lifeless thing in there.

 

 

Tho I suspect both are gone as there are in fact two cats in the new garage. The other is above the IS-2S in the barn there

cat in hat juggling – Wisdom Enough

look at me!
look at me NOW!
it is fun to have fun
but you have to know how.

and the milk and the cake!
i can hold up these books!
and the fish on a rake!
i can hold the toy ship
and a little toy man!
and look! with my tail
i can hold a red fan!
i can fan with the fan
as i hop on the ball!
but that is not all.
oh, no.
that is not all...'

Wow, thanks for pointing that out, i didn't notice the second one in the garage (i can barely see the first one anyway, since i don't have the free cam mod and WG's garage camera dynamics are... well, WG-ish). The more cats the better, there can never be enough of them :)

"You are old, Bulldog Drummond," the young man said,
"And your hair has become very white;
And yet you incessantly stand on your head-
Do you think, at your age, it is right?"

 

"In my youth," Bulldog Drummond replied to his son,
"I feared it might injure the brain;
But, now that I'm perfectly sure I have none,
Why, I do it again and again."
