9 Animals Who Are Not Actually Vladimir Putin
Russian President Vladimir Putin may look remarkably similar to a "Harry Potter" elf, but it turns out he also resembles a lot of animals:
This Australian cattle dog cuddles almost as closely as Putin.
His twins range from the proboscis monkey, native to Borneo ...
... to domestic doppelgängers ...
... who like to go swimming.
There's even a Brooklyn cat named Carl whose owner, author Amanda Petrusich says, is "beginning to resemble Vladimir Putin." (Credit: Amanda Petrusich)
Carl's not the only cat look-alike ... there are these winks ...
... and nods. (Are we assertive or assertively sitting?)
Then there was the blue-steel moment, topped only by ...
... deep staring contests with birds.
