Feline Lord Voldemort Needs a Home

Charlie, an abandoned cat, bears an unfortunate resemblance to the evil Lord Voldemort of the Harry Potter films. The fourteen year old animal had his ears and nose removed after a bout with cancer but is reported to be friendly and playful. He is able to smell and hear despite his lack of ears or a complete nose. Unlike Voldemort Charlie has not killed anyone's parents, is not the sworn enemy of Harry Potter and would make a lovely pet. He is available for adoption and it is hoped that a Harry Potter fan will take pity on him and provide him with a loving home.

Charlie's a good example of something I've always said: Ugly cats are like Bigfoot. I've heard of them, but I've never seen one and I don't think there really is such a thing. I'm glad this kitty is getting some publicity from this article, he's sure to find a good home now and more people will be inspired to help homeless pets because of it too.

I wonder if part of the reason for him not getting along well with other pets, especially cats, is because of his ears being gone. They play a big role in just about every animal's expressions of body language and Charlie's lack of ears might be hampering his ability to interact with other cats that way. Maybe they see him as threatening?

BTW, for him to still have a normal life at 14 after such a major surgery is a testament to the skill of the vet that treated him. After seeing this, I know I want to take my cats to that vet!

Of course he will get adopted. I had always thought a good idea to get more shelter animals adopted was to publicize them. The shelter would have to give some sort of "hero" type story though. That appears to be the only time that the shelter will get hundreds of calls, is when people want to adopt the one they saw on the news.

He looks like a sweet guy :3 Admittedly, if I didn't know his back story and was at a shelter, I'd probably be a bit freaked out and move on (unless he came right up to me and made an amazing impression).

Still, I'd take him in if I were nearby. I'm sure he's found/will soon find a great home.

Lexxie, there are numerous Blue Cross adoption centres throughout Britain and the article doesn't say which one Charlie lives at. You could inquire but I'm almost certain he has been adopted by now with all the publicity he's received.

Update: Within hours of his story appearing in the Daily Echo, the Blue Cross Centre in West End, was inundated with calls, including one from a lady in Worthing who was able to reserve him first.

Yesterday she met Charlie, who has had his ears and nose removed after suffering from skin cancer, and the pair immediately bonded.
