    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.)

    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.

    I would say he votes paws up to just getting rid of dogs altogether.

    Hope he's neutered; just wouldn't do for the town mayor to go around knocking up all the town's lady cats... :shuffle:

    Orange cats rule. Some people say that orange cats are the reason God made Oklahoma.

    I agree. I used to have an orange cat the same colour as Stubbs. He was such a lovely cat.

    I was just reminded of that great song by Garrison Keillor called "Alaska Cats."

    "Alaska cats are always dressed
    In jeans and boots and outdoor vest.
    It's not stuffed with eiderdown
    But hair from dogs around the town -
    Some black, some brown."

    Good thing I have pretty good reflexes, otherwise a peppermint would have just left my mouth at speed a couple of minutes ago. :D

    My Puss Puss was orange on top, white underneath and paws and an orange and white tail. He was quite the personality and I miss him so much. It's been six years now since we said Farewell and he crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

    I was telling Mom and Dad about His Honour Mayor Stubbs tonight, since they've been away and I knew they wouldn't have seen the story where they were staying. My Dad's reaction was that giving him a glass of catnip daily was breaking the law. When I asked him what he meant, (and I *should* have known better too...) he replies w/...

    :lol: :D :lol:

    While I agree that it is for the best that Mayor Stubbs be sober in order to fulfill his duties, I strongly support drugging the Canadian Prime Minister. Cocaine wouldn't be my choice, rather I'd like him heavily sedated with valium or other benzos/hypnotics. Preferably until the next election.:)

    Now that you mention it, our Australian PM could do with something. She really does talk like someone has her hand up her arse.
