For bob austin, member of the Navy V-12 Program (left), this was a new kind of KP duty: “kitten patrol.” In summer 1945, Austin, who was temporarily studying at Villa­nova, and Apprentice Seaman Clyde Cobb ’49 COE (right) took charge of a young, male bobcat — a surprise delivery from James Halpin Jr. ’42 VSB. Though his life was short, Count Villan II (he was the school’s second feral ­mascot) inspired pride among Villa­nova Wildcats, including Jordan Olivar ’38 CLAS, football coach (center). He even met Bill the Goat at a game against Navy.
