A cat that resembles Hitler

Cats That Look Like Hitler is a website featuring photographs of cats that bear an alleged resemblance to Adolf Hitler.[1] The site was founded by Koos Plegt and Paul Neve in 2006,[2] and became widely known after being featured on several television programmes across Europe[2][3][4] and Australia.[5] As of February 2007, the site contained photographs of over 800 cats.[1]

In popular culture[edit]

The site was also spotlighted by Stephen Colbert on The Colbert Report on 26 July, 2010 and in a report by CNN's Jeanne Moos on 27 July, 2010.[6]

The site was commonly referenced in the now defunct Australian gaming magazine Total Gamer and has become well known in New Zealand since it was mentioned on the Edge Nightshow by Brad Wattson that his cat 'Piggles' was the No. 1 "kitler" (Kitty/Hitler) in the world. The site was also mentioned fleetingly in The Social Network.
