Dog House Blog, Catapulted To Fame!
Tired of those political rats? Mexicans frustrated with corrupt politicians nominate a cat to run for city mayor and he is in the lead. The citizens in Xalapa, Mexico have a big decision to make on July 7th, when they cast their vote for mayor. One of their choices is a cat who vows to 'rid the city of rats.' Literally, but also in the sense of corrupt politicians. Two students in the eastern Mexican city have nominated a cat named Morris for mayor. If elected, they say Morris will eat, sleep, yawn and continue other cat activities as usual, which is what makes him a good candidate. A lack of belief in local candidates has boosted Morris' approval ratings. His Facebook Page has more likes than three of the other four contenders for the spot. He also admits that he's likely to make a mess in office. But at least he'll cover it up rather than leaving it around for others to clean up. Morris hopes to make kitty litter out of the other candidates by election day. He has a weakness for quilts, sheets, pillows, couches, and clothing in general. Surprisingly, this isn't the first time a cat has won a mayoral election. In 1997, Stubbs a part-Manx cat was elected mayor of Talkeetna, Alaska, as a write-in candidate. While Stubbs was not allowed to officially hold the position, he was given the title of honorary mayor. Stubbs continues to hold that position today. El Candigato is fur real! Vote for Morris we say.
Of course Blogville was there first with our own cat Mayor, none other than Madi here!
Have a terrific Thursday everyone.
