A Soviet soldier using a cat as a messenger somewhere in the East. I’m not really sure how reliable that would be, especially when you consider the whole “who the hell do you think you are?” attitude of a cat in comparison to a dog.

Michael Wittmann and a lil bunny-wabbit friend at Château Elbeuf’s garden.

During the initial formation of the SS-Schwere Abteilung Panzer Battalion 101 they were placed in the south-west area of France at Château Elbeuf. The old commander (SS-Obersturmbannführer Heinz von Westernhagen) of Wittmann’s former unit the 13th SS-Schwere Abteilung was  to command the unit.

Wittmann and his Bride were residing in the Château until Michael was moved further northeast. This served as the honeymoon the couple never had, and a good morale boost that Michael needed.
