"Groucho" is a nice, less offensive alternative.


Hitlercats is a blog which collects pictures of cats who have little black spots under their noses. When I got wee Fettuccine Alfredo 'Electric (god rest his soul) from the Animal Protective Association, the shelter had one of these cats, whom they called "Groucho." As I would consider myself a Marx Bros fan, and not so much a fan of Hitler, I kind of prefer their approach. But a site with cool kitty cat photos is a site with cool kitty cat photos.

Now if only someone could explain to me the science of the Hitler cat! But who can do it? Such a one would need mastery of the arcana of cat coat genetics, coupled with the ability to explain it in a format that I could read online. Perhaps if that person used some sort of journaling web application...

You know, I think I once ran across a blog that covered the type of genetice-esque explanations you're looking for. Now what was the name... You know, it's been so long I just can't remember. Maybe it's all in my head and it never existed. That's too bad cause it'd be quite a good read. Oh well...
