Two true Ukrainian Warrior Cats (video)

I believe this is Shaybyk one of many warrior cats fighting with the Ukrainian soldiers and making their lives a little better. Image is a screenshot from the video below.

The first Ukrainian warrior cat I'd like to mention is "Syrsky the Cat" and he is named after the Ukrainian Army Land Forces Commander Oleksandr Syrsky who's known as one of Ukraine's most effective combat leaders. The naming was a coincidence! 😇

Syrsky the Cat's human caregiver or fighting human companion is Roman Sinicyn, a Ukrainian army officer.

Roman Sinicyn says this about his adorable cat:
Most of the locals evacuated, so the cats took over. We caught Syrsky and food-persuaded him to stay with us. He helped to solve our mouse problem. The mice run over you while you sleep, they get into your stuff. They chew everything. We had to throw out two boxes of our packed rations because of mice. I took him home when we left that position. Now he lives with my family in Kyiv, but he continues to help the army. We used his social media popularity to collect €147,000 for Mini Shark UAV complexes for adjusting artillery.

Shaybyk the lover

Here is a cute video of another true Warrior Cat. Not from the Erin Hunter Warrior Cats series of books and role play games on the internet but the real thing working with Ukrainian fighters to make their lives more bearable in the trenches on the front in defending their country against the invading Russian army.

Shaybyk is another fighting Ukrainian trench cat killing hundreds of mice. I understand that Oleksandr Liashuk is his human companion. He says this about his cat:
Shaybyk had the biggest charisma. It was getting cold, so I took him with me one night into my sleeping bag. And that’s when I fell in love with that cat. He’s not just my best friend, he’s my son. Once we were at the position in the forest and he caught 11 mice in one day. Sometimes [he] brings mice to my sleeping bag.
There are others. The two mentioned are examples of how Ukrainian fighters are making friends with stray cats who are proving to be invaluable in trench warfare.

Here is a video of, I believe, Shaybyk:

Let's praise these cats and all others serving their country. They are in danger.
