Kiki and his sister Bones were born shortly after an American group
of soldiers had arrived in Afghanistan. At only 3 weeks old, their
mother had disappeared and they were left alone to live rough and fend
for themselves like the other cats in the area. The lads looked after
them both and they lived in a box in the soldierâ€™s office, after a week
they were allowed to roam around during the day and sleep in the hooch
Sadly after about a week, Bones disappeared. Two weeks had passed
without any sign of her and shortly after, Kiki disappeared too.
Luckily Kiki returned after a few days, but Bones never did.
The lads found Kiki bleeding, wounded and covered in his own faeces,
he was too frightened to approach them, and without question they
cleaned Kiki up and due to how bad his wounds were, they had to be
surgically stapled shut. It seemed as if someone had attempted to skin
Kiki, there were various stab wounds in his stomach, skin had been cut
off and deep gashes over his tiny body.
Kiki thankfully has made a full recovery. It is amazing how forgiving
animals can be and although he was unsure at first, heâ€™s still
friendly with humans and will run up to greet anyone he sees! Kiki and
his new friend KEYKEY (imaginative names these soldiers give out!) are
now safe in the US with the families of the soldiers who cared for them
in Afghanistan â€“yet again thanks to the supporters of Nowzad.
Key Key, Simba and Ra-Ko came to our attention via Kikiâ€™s owner. All
3 ginger kittens lived on the same base with Kiki and the compassionate
but hardened US Marines started looking after them too.
Nowzad Dogs was able to get the Simba and Ro-Ka to the safety of the
rescue but sadly just before they were due go on the next phase of the
journey both cats, probably as they were so young succumb quickly to a
virus and even with the constant attention of the rescue staff neither
Now, some of their body parts and costumes belong to the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, which on Wednesday
accepted a donation of several objects that reflect the evolution of
automobile safety from the 1920s to the present.
Vehicle safety didn't become a prominent public concern until the 1960s,
when lap and shoulder belts became mandatory in new cars. Many drivers
used to fear the idea of being trapped in a car during an accident, or
they thought that safety devices reflected poorly on their skills,
according to Roger White, associate curator in the museum's Division of
Work and Industry.
"The objects in the collection reflect the technological developments of
these things and the change of attitude on the part of everyone --
motorists, even manufacturers," he said.
The donated items, which are joining the museum's permanent exhibition
about American transportation, include a prototype for the three-point
seat belts that became a requirement in the 1970s, an energy-absorbing
steering column from a 1967 Chevrolet, a crash pad invented in the 1930s
to cover steel dashboards and some of AAA's first driver-education
There are also a pair of crash test dummies designed to show how people
react in accidents.

(I was going to put Stephen Caviness since it's his birthday, but I thought that might seem a little too much "proud auntie" of me... but he IS awesome! He's 19 today and he's out helping kids help people who can't help themselves. He plays piano and guitar, sings, and writes music. Check out his MySpace page for his music...)
