Staff say no one wants to adopt her and believe her markings – in the distinctive shape of a toothbrush moustache and slicked-down, side-parted hair – are putting them off.
Spokesman Tara Dundon said: ‘Kitler is an adorable little girl who will make a wonderful addition to the right family. She is really playful and a typical sweet kitten.’
'We rehome five and a half thousand animals every year but we cannot find a loving owner for Kitler. We think her unusual markings are putting people off.'
'She is not a specific breed and we don't know where her black and white patches came from because we have no idea who her parents are.'
'We think Kitler was either dumped by someone who didn't want her or couldn't look after her or she could have been a wild cat who was left by her mother.'
'Sadly, Kitler is just one of hundreds of stray cats we take in every year. Last year we took in 1,294 cats and kittens, of which 422 were strays.'
Kitler was found alone and close to death at the side of the A421 near Kempston, Bedfordshire.
The severely malnourished kitten would have died but recovered her health after receiving food and treatment at the Wood Green animal shelter.
