Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Kitler?
Most cats possess that typically feline facial expression that implies a secret longing for world domination. All cats want to rule the world, that's part of the nature of the species, but to be a genuine Kitler there has to be some other similarity when compared to that ever popular German/Austrian dictator. We're looking for that toothbrush 'tache, that most unfashionable of facial adornments. Or the flock-of-seagulls hairdo. Perhaps an evil glint in its eye, or maybe a Kitler will be Sieg Miaowing their paw all the way to their dinner plate. Of course, the best Kitlers will have all of the above.
A website about cats that look like Hitler. Are you mental or what?
Yes. Next question.
Alright, let me rephrase that last question. WHY a website about cats that look like Hitler? Where did the idea come from?
Originally, a Dutchman called Koos Plegt stumbled on the very first Kitler in his hometown of Zwolle in Holland. Once he'd picked himself off of the floor from laughing, he set up a quick blogsite with other examples of the Kitlerian species to entertain his mates. I (Paul Neve) saw that blogsite and once I'd picked myself up from the floor laughing, spoke to Koos about collaborating on a proper website devoted to that laudable example of feline prowess, the Kitler. The result is the CatsThatLookLikeHitler.com you all now know and love. Or hate. Koos has unfortunately disappeared into a subspace vortex or something (or certainly he's ignoring all contact) so it's just me all on my lonesome now.
Aren't you glorifying Hitler?
Let's get this straight. Hitler was an arsehole. Hitler was a disgusting, pus-ridden lump of excrement from the devil's own anus. Before we go any further, let's just reiterate that. As such, I think it's entirely appropriate to reduce him to an object of ridicule by comparing his physical appearance and styling to a bunch of fluffy, cute moggies.
I think I may have a Kitler. My cat has a 'tache, and he keeps on annexing my next door neighbour's garden while making a noise that sounds suspiciously like "Lebensraum". How do I put him on the website?
You can submit your own little furry dictators using the "Add Your Kitler" button opposite.
I submitted my Kitler, and have checked ever day for the past seven years, but he still hasn't appeared on the site. How come?
Well, this could be for a number of reasons. We only let the best, most authentic Kitlers through to the site. Check out the Submission Guidelines. Perhaps he didn't look enough like the original Adolf. Maybe your picture was too blurred, or too small, or there were other quality issues. Your cat might not have been Kitlerish enough Usually, it is safe to say if he hasn't appeared within a couple of days, he hasn't made the cut. But all is not lost - maybe he made the Honourable Mentions over on the Forums!
I don't have a Kitler, but I want to contact you anyway. Can I?
Of course. Off you go to that "Contact Us" button and send us some love. Or even some hate! You might find your way onto the "We Love Kitlers" or "We Hate Kitlers" pages!

No off-the-shelf blogging or photo library software was harmed in the creation of this website. It is all original code written by me.
