LOL! A much better choice as mayor than Sarah Palin ever was! I'm assuming the cat got rid of the vermin that inhabit most government offices..;)

I wish all politicians were as laid back as our furry friends.

Frank - may blessings rain down upon you for starting my day off with this wonderful story! Thank you so much!

Hmmmm....I don't think Mayor Stubbs is a DemoCat, since he's exibiting diva behaviour and is only a figurehead (letting others do his work and fund his catnip and treats!); he sounds more like a RepugCat. :)
