She’s cute and adorable, but a six-week-old kitten in England can’t find anyone to take her in because she bears a striking resemblance to Adolf Hitler.
According to the staff at a British animal shelter, no one will adopt this black-and-white cat because of a black mark under its nose.
No One Wants To Adopt Kitler
‘Kitler’ — as the six-week-old cat is known — has been passed over by prospective owners and the animal shelter officials in Godmanchester, Cambridgeshire, think it’s because she has a patch of black fur underneath her nose that looks like the notorious dictator’s distinctive mustache.
As first reported in The Daily Telegraph, the kitten, who was found severely malnourished by a roadside has been nicknamed “Kitler.” Spokeswoman Tara Dundon from Wood Green animal shelter said: “Kitler is an adorable little girl who will make a wonderful addition to the right family. She is really playful and a typical sweet kitten.”

Cats That Look Like Hitler
While reading about this story, I came across a website entitled, Cats That Look Like Hitler. I was astonished to discover that finding likenesses of Hitler has become a semi-popular pastime for people with a dark sense of humor.
The website offers guidelines for determining if a cat qualifies as feline Hitler:
Does your cat look like Adolf Hitler? Do you wake up in a cold sweat every night wondering if he’s going to up and invade Poland? Does he keep putting his right paw in the air while making a noise that sounds suspiciously like “Sieg Miaow”? If so, this is the website for you.
Meanwhile, if you are still intrigued by this topic, check out this video of Kitlers. And let’s hope that with all the publicity she’s getting, this cute kitty will find a home.
