How Come A Cat Beats 13 Dogs, A Peacock, A Goat, And A Chicken In Elections And Becomes A Mayor?

How would you feel if the town you live in was ruled by a cat? Sounds unreal, but actually it is possible. For example, Stubbs the Cat was the mayor of Talkeetna, Alaska, from 1997 until his death in 2017. He was a major tourist attraction, and people visited that place from all over the world to see the cat mayor.

Being a mayor of the historic district was an honor, and Stubbs had a special tradition: Every day, he came to the local restaurant and had a glass of water laden with catnip.

And now, there is a new cat mayor. Sweet Tart was elected as a mayor of a small town in Michigan. The 9-year-old cat got the most votes and won the election. Other candidates included another cat, 13 dogs, a peacock, a goat, and a chicken.

More than 7,000 residents voted, paying 1$ each. It was a charitable election, and the money went to the Omena Historical Society.

But what about the practical aspects of being a cat mayor? The President of the Omena Historical Society, Keith Disselkoen, says there won’t be any problems:

They have their paws. We accept paw prints. Legal documents can be executed with a paw print.
