'Kitler' Finds a Home
This poor little baby that no one wanted because of his supposedly striking resemblance to Adolph Hitler has finally found a home.
Wood Green reportedly rehomes around 500 kitties per year, but they were unable to find a home for their furry friend with the unfortunate black patch under the nose. They believe that because the kitten’s face evokes thoughts of Hitler, people were put off.
After the Daily Mail reported about the unfortunate little orphan, hundreds of calls and emails flooded Wood Green Animal Shelter expressing interest.
Almost as quickly as word spread, the so-called “Kitler”.. who is actually a little girl named Luminus, was adopted, and is now living in the forever home that she deserves. Wood Green posted the following on their website:
Thank you so much for contacting us about Luminus/Kitler. Please excuse this “standard” response but we have been absolutely amazed at the response we’ve had – over 500 telephone calls and e mails from all over the world- so this is the best way to make sure we respond to everyone as quickly as we can.
We are delighted to say that we have now found a wonderful, loving home for Luminus and we hope this will be the start of a long and happy life for her, now that she has a second chance.
We still have many other cats looking for loving homes and find that the black and white cats are often the last to be picked as people prefer the more colourful pets.
If you could find a place for one of our cats, please do get in touch- you can look at the cat rehoming pages of our website to see all the beautiful cats currently looking for love and to find out more about the adoption procedure.
Wood Green is perfectly happy to rehome animals abroad but we do have to insist that prospective guardians come to one of our Centres first so realise this may be difficult for our overseas supporters.
Thank you again for your interest and support- it means a lot to us to know that there are so many caring animal-lovers around.
