Sometimes real stories do have happy endings-- even for those who killed Harry Potter's parents.
The saga of Charlie (a.k.a Voldemog), a 14-year-old cat who lost his nose and ears to skin cancer, reached its conclusion yesterday. Living in a shelter in the West End of London, it was feared that the older, deformed feline would never find a home. However, the internet caught wind of the similarities between him and the movie version of Harry Potter's arch-nemesis Voldemort (who also has no nose, no ears, and a white complexion), and many people contacted the shelter wanting to adopt Charlie.
In the end, though, it was an anonymous woman who wasn't a fan of Harry Potter who chose to take in Charlie. She did it simply out of compassion, to give the poor, damaged cat a loving home. This is a better fate than being impulsively adopted for the novelty. Still, the woman should watch out, lest Charlie contact the other neighborhood cats and start an all-feline chapter of the Death Eaters.
