Hundreds apply to adopt kitten with Hitler markings
Everyone needs love, even cats that look like Adolf Hitler.
The English kitten, dubbed Kitler because the black patch of fur under her nose is reminiscent of Hitler’s distinctive mustache, finally has found a family to love her.
Last week, The Telegraph reported that potential pet owners repeatedly overlooked the kitten at the Wood Green Animal Shelter because the 6-week-old feline lost the genetic lottery.
“Kitler is an adorable little girl who will make a wonderful addition to the right family,” shelter spokeswoman Tara Dundon told the publication.
The nationwide publicity of the kitten’s situation inspired hundreds of adoption requests, according to the animal shelter’s blog.
“[W]e have been absolutely amazed at the response we’ve had - over 500 telephone calls and emails from all over the world,” the site said.
Of the large pool of interested applicants, one family was accepted to take her in.
“We are delighted to say that we have now found a wonderful, loving home for Luminus (aka Kitler) and we hope this will be the start of a long and happy life for her, now that she has a second chance,” the site said.
