    Town in Alaska has a Feline Mayor!!

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

    adn.com ~ Cat Named Stubbs Is Mayor of Talkeetna

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

    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 would jump on that political bandwagon!

    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!
    And he probably has done a much better job than some of the human ones.

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

    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.

    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...

    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."
