No, no joke. Stubbs really is the Mayor of this little town in Alaska.

adn.com ~ Cat Named Stubbs Is Mayor of Talkeetna (http://www.adn.com/2012/07/14/2542215/cat-named-stubbs-is-mayor-of-talkeetna.html)

He's adorable and sure loves his catnip in a wine glass. :D

Probably would do a better job than most people. And probably appropriate a cat is a mayor of a sleepy town.

Here is article with a photo of Stubbs.

I love Orange Cats, they're so personable. I've had 4. Good on you Mayor Stubbs.

I thought there was a picture of His Honour w/that article I posted the link to, but w/the slowness of my connection, what I assumed was a video loading must have been an ad. Thanks for finding one w/one of Stubbs in it Aussie Willy. :)

I can say without hesitation, that Mayor Stubbs is the cutest mayor I have ever seen! :D
And he probably has done a much better job than some of the human ones. :P

Hey, this is a state that elected you-know-who. I see this as a significant step up.

:slinkaway

(And I for one welcome our feline overlords.)

Well it will give a whole new meaning to politicians getting their claws out.

Awww! I missed him when I was right there! Now there is just one more reason to go back to Talkeetna and Alaska!

I visited Talkeetna last year. Beautiful fair tale style tiny little town with about 100 bushplane airports for flightseeing trips to Mt. McKinley.

Of course. :D

I do wonder how often the fur flies at meetings.

I'll bet Mayor Stubbs does well by his constituents. Probably would say paws down to Walmart intruding upon green space, paws up to dog leash laws and paws up to the consumption of fresh fish.
