As political animals go, this one hopes he will be grinning like a Cheshire Cat come election day.
A feline by the name of Morris is in the running to be mayor of Veracruz state capital Xalapa, in Mexico.
Armed with a paw-ful of policies, he has been put forward as the citizens candidate in the July 7 election.
With the campaign slogan Xalapa Without Rats, he promises to do pretty much the same as other politicians which is not a lot except sleep and take it easy.
Morris the cat wants your votes as he bids to become mayor (Picture: Twitter) His Facebook campaign page also insists that, although he is likely to cause a mess on a regular basis, at least he will cover it up and not leave it lying around for everyone else to clean up.
It looks like the pledges are connecting with the electorate as his Facebook page currently has more likes than three of the four main candidates in the election.
And while Morris claims to have a weakness for quilts, sheets, pillows, couches, and clothing in general, his supporters are hoping he doesnt become just another fat cat if he wins power.
Morris should have run in 2012 in the U. S. He could have won.
I wouldn’t take it if I were the cat, they tend to kill off mayors and such down there.
A cat’s job is to purr and sleep most of the time.
PING this one over to Slings And Arrows. :)=^..^=
Remember Cats do have nine lives =)
That’s the candi-gato!
Un bonito pussy gato
He has my vote if I lived in Mexico
Hey, Mexicans vote here. Turnabout is fair play.
But I don’t live there so I can’t vote for him. ;(
Having nine lives may help a Mayor in Mexico finish a term.
The catnip cartels will likely have him turned into cat tacos real soon...........
