A ‘timorous’ cat was assaulted by hooligans and dumped in a litterbin for ‘looking like Adolf Hitler’, his owner has asserted.
Baz the cat, who has been named ‘Kitler’ by locals in Tredworth, Gloucestershire, has a characteristic black mark under his nose, analogous to the Nazi leader’s toothbrush moustache.
The 7 year-old feline’s owner, Kirsty Sparrow, thinks her beloved pet, which lost an eye in the assail, may have been targeted by muggers owing to his Hitler-style markings.
‘He can’t help it that he looks like Hitler and he is the most sweet and timorous cat, with a exquisite nature,’ she said.
I am disgusted with what these nasty people can do to animals.
The black and white cat is thought to have been kicked by ruffians and left for dead in a garbage bin.
Baz would lose one of his eyes as it was severely damaged; he underwent emergency surgery, and ultimate vet bill came to £600.
Police are inspecting the incident.
