Cats That Look Like Hitler

Cats That Look Like Hitler is a blog devoted to kitlers, or cats that look like hitler.  For example, the kitten above.  That emo kitler is going to pounce all over your Sudetenland.  The authors do a pretty good job of explaining this tomfoolery in the opening paragraph and FAQ, so I'm just going to let them do it.
"Does your cat look like Adolf Hitler? Do you wake up in a cold sweat every night wondering if he's going to up and invade Poland? Does he keep putting his right paw in the air while making a noise that sounds suspiciously like 'Sieg Miaow'? If so, this is the website for you."

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 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'm digging the curtain-parted hair and the lazy, carefree posture.

Meet Blane, the 5th best kitler. This needs more sieg, less engagement ring.

Great posture Leonardo (#2).  It's very Lion King.

Vostok, the #1 kitler. Bonus points for the armband.
