This session's central story, "Parachuting Cats to the Rescue," is true. However, multiple versions are more, or less, credible. Some sources claim that 40,000 cats were parachuted. In contrast, the log book of Borneo's Royal Air Force was the source for the more plausible number of 20 cats. There is also a book written about this event, Day They Parachuted Cats on Borneo by Charlotte Pomerantz (Addison Wesley Longman, 1971).
