Did you know there is a website called Cats who look like Hitler?
I read about it on Axel's blog yesterday BUT I wanted to tell you about our local cat called Hitler.
He looked just like the cat pictured above and he was the local neighbourhood tom. Hitler lived in the next street in a very nice house but unfortunately nature overtook nurture and he was a bit of a bully - just life Hefty Tabby.
He used to come in through the cat flap and terrorise us girls (I was only a kitten at the time and Bebington was an old lady). He would spray up the walls to mark his territory and the humans were constantly washing and deodorising to try and get rid of his scent.
The final straw was the day the girl human came home to find him asleep on the bed with the two of us (we weren't too happy about it but we didn't have much choice). That's when the girl human decided to lay a trap.
She set the cat flap to one-way so he could get in and not get out, then when she got home from work he was there waiting - trapped inside. She put him in a basket, rang the vet and took him straight down the next morning for a little nip/tuck. She did tell a little white lie to the vet and said Hitler belonged to us but it was all for a good cause.
When Hitler got back from the vet and had recovered, the girl human let him go back home. For some reason he never came to our house again but he did live to a ripe old age (senza sfera) and there were a few less unwanted kittens in the area as well which is a good thing.
