I see the Cats that Look Like Hitler website was posted. That was my first thought.
My sister came up with a method of selecting a cat. She went to the animal shelter and let a cat pick her. Every cat I've had since has been one that selected me. They were all very friendly. The two that lived the longest (the last cat turns 18 this month) picked me out in the world. One came to me when I was studying for my last final in college. I was sitting in my car with the door open reviewing my notes when this young cat showed up and jumped in the car. I thought maybe he smelled my lunch or something and tossed him out. He got back in the car and very deliberately climbed into the backseat and curled up.
I just had enough time to run home buy a litter box and some cat food and get back for my last final. The campus had a lot of feral cats that had been abandoned by students at the end of term and I think he was one of the recent abandonees. He had a funny blob of color across the top of his nose, but no mustache. He made it to 18 1/2 though he was very frail in his last couple of years. He was the most extroverted cats I have ever met. Whenever someone came over to the house he came running. He adored all people.
The next one who found me out in the world turned up in my front yard one night. He also made it clear he wasn't leaving. I put up signs around the neighborhood and one of the neighbors said they had seen him around the neighborhood for several days before he found me. He's very elderly, but still the same character he always was. What's weird is he has the exact same coloring pattern as the other cat, though a different color (gray and white vs black and white), but they cant be related because the first cat was neutered long before the second one was born.
The cat knew I was writing about him, he just showed up.
Anyway, even if the cat does look like Hitler, the cat found you, which is a good sign.
Yep Bill. Every cat I ever had found me. I think I got one from the pound but all the others just showed up. Actually, this little guy is going to a new home tomorrow. I already have two and my male cat is not happy with him around. But he is just about the nicest young cat and he is going to my friend who just lost her beloved cat of 18 years, so I know it was meant to be.
