Meet Kittler

A poster from the Green Party in Germany. I think it says something like "You can't always tell a Nazi at first glance." Funny ad or trivialization of the Holocaust?

Nazis were not just about the Holocaust, they were truly multitalented miscreants and monsters, bombing and burning entire cities, double-crossing dubious allies, and spying far and wide.

I feel bad for all of cat-dom though to be used by the Green Party which if not in method at any cost, is similar to the Nazis in the basic premise for everything they do: self aggrandizement.

It's a semi-funny ad. For a political party I despise.

I don't know anything at all about Germany's Green Party, so I guess I can't be offended but I have to say this: I have seen many a Hitler-cat in my time, and this one is the absolute funniest. I love the hair.

I am afraid to ask since I am about twice your age and this is the first Hitler cat that I had come across.

Do you seek them out, or do you just have an uncanny ability to stumble across them?

I have to preface this by saying that in Israel stray cats are everywhere, so on an average day one sees about seven different ones. A Hitler cat usually just has a black spot over its mouth that's just the same shape as Hitler's mustache. It's not that uncommon.I think there were two that lived on campus last year.
