Alas, if the troops were marching through that village, it means, almost by definition, that the village had been evacuated long time ago... The war means that thousands of dogs and cats have been abandoned, on both sides of the border. There are so many dogs and cats in Israel now, abandoned by owners who had to evacuate their homes in a hurry. I imagine it's the same on the Lebanese side. I'm sure that the previous family would have been relieved to find out that someone had actually taken their wounded kitty. The alternative being leaving him behind to die of hunger, thirst or lack of veterinary care, I think the soldier did the right thing
