Who do you think you are kittening Mr Hitler?

It has to be seen to be believed.

I came across this website via Gerry O’Sullivan’s Blog. I never could have imagined that one cat let alone many cats could ever resemble a 20th century European dictator with a stupid moustache. Fact, as they say can often be stranger than fiction

Hehe! Nice find! The wildcat here had kittens a few weeks ago. Not sure if any of them look like Hitler yet, so far they're just hairballs that spit if you get too close.

I LOVE this site!!! However I have a bit of an emotional conflict because every time I see a cat or a picture of a cat (even if it is a hideous cat with one ear and all its fur burnt off) I immediately feel it is absolutely gorgeous and I want to adopt it. Therefore when I look at a picture of a cat and feel this way and am thinking the cat is like Hitler I am (kind of) having these same feelings about Hitler which of course I don't have as he was a cruel insane dictator - therefore I think it is better for my mental stability (such as it is) that I do not look at this site any more. Just to put your mind at rest I only live with 4 cats although I do know a woman who used to have 14 (now down to about 6 due to many sad deaths over many years) - every time one of them died she would go into church and light a candle for it (this was the only time she went into church) as well as write a whole poetic obituary about it. I did point out that animals are not supposed to have souls (although I personally think they do).

Hairballs that spit, eh Caroline? Just as long as they don't grow up to be genocidal despots with a habit of invading neighbouring countries!

Lorainne - exactly.

Caroline - How close does the wildcat let you get to her kittens??? I watched our cat have kittens many years ago and it was really lovely to watch and she did eat some of the afterbirth/placenta before I took it away and put it in the bin. Tom Cruise was planning to eat the placenta when Katie Holmes gave birth wasn't he??

Ciaran is that all you can say 'exactly'??? I feel your response to my amazing emotional revelations to be wholly unsatisfactory!!!

Caroline said...

Ciaran: What then do I dob number 4 who likes to hide?

Lorainne: This Close although she didn't like it and moved them somewhere else. You should have let the cat eat the placenta. It's a natural thing. I can't say the same for people doing likewise. That's just sick.

Eva Braun?

Lorainne said...

Caroline the kittens are completely gorgeous!!!! I was just curious to examine the placenta and obviously after I had fiddled around with it the cat wasn't too keen any more. I don't think it is disgusting to eat a human placenta as long as I was eating my own I think I would be OK about it. I might want to cook it first though.

Ciaran - yes Eva Braun did not have very good taste in men. Neither do I. Perhaps she went to a girls school as well. However I did read something about some woman having such an obsession with Hitler that she killed herself over it. I must say even without the other major flaws like penchant for mass murder the moustache would put me right off.

CW said...

A woman who kiled herself over Hitler, Lorainne? Are you sure it wasn't just a cat who looked like him?

Maybe just call it Pibelo Marchley.

Lorainne said...

It is true Ciaran - I read a book about Hitlers love life (quite a normal thing to do I think) and apparrently before he met Eva Braun Hitler had a sexual relationship with his niece, Geli Raubal. When I say sexual, the book says that something sexual happened but opinion is that Hitler remained technically a virgin until he was in his thirties - I am not sure how the author knew this!!!)Anyway whatever happened sexually, Hitler became very jealous when she tried to break up this incestuous relationship and would not let her move on or have other boyfriends. Geli realised he would neither marry her not let her marry anyone else - later she shot herself. All the important women in Hitlers life killed themselves - Unity Mitford (an English upper class woman) was obsessed with him and shot herself on the day England declared war on Germany. Some people are VERY odd.

Piebelo Marchley is a fine name for a cat - he is worthy of a song being written about him like Grizelda the Glamour Cat and Old Deuteronomy etc...(assume you have seen Cats the musical...)

Lorainne said...

Arn't you going to respond to this Ciaran??? Maybe you are just stunned by my exemplary historical knowledge. Totally random thought but I wrote a limerick about someone called Ciaran - wonder should I post it on your site???

CW said...

Maybe you should write a Limerick about a cat called Pibelo Marchley.

Lorainne said...

Right I will. Watch this space....

THE NATIONAL ANTHEM OF THE PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF LONG LANE

In North London there lay an independant state
Called The Peoples Republic of Long Lane
It was ruled by a leader so strong and so great
That he held international fame
Piebelo Marchley was the name of this man
He set up the state in '99
Cause he knew the UK government didn't give a damn
About education, the health service, welfare or crime
For seven long years Long Lane remained free
As poor Piebelo Marchley got old
For the man was troubled, he had a secret you see
Something I have not yet told
For Piebelo Marchley was really a cat
He wasn't a human at all
And when all alone could be seen catching a rat
Or playing around with his ball(s)
But never mind about that he has done rather well
To rule over Long Lane for so long
And give us this fascinating tale to tell
So we celebrate him with this song
