Alaska town says cat mayor is purr-fect

The part-Manx cat clawed his way on to the political scene of Talkeetna, Alaska, through a write-in campaign shortly after he was born 15 years ago.

Residents didn’t like the mayoral candidates years ago, so they encouraged enough people to elect Stubbs as a write-in candidate.

The town has nearly 900 residents. His election earned him enough press to catapult the town at the base of Mount McKinley into a tourist destination. Residents say they’re happy that their stubby-tailed mayor is promoting tourism.

The general store where Stubbs hangs out, says it gets dozens of tourists a day asking for him.
