I think there is a town on the North American seaboard that has a ginger cat for their mayor too .... very popular it seems (and it would probably help with tourism!). Thanks Katka! Loved the video!

Noted, tweeted, and shared. Great article; no doubt that a cat would do much better than most politicians. What you see is what you get with a Kitty. No doubt also that the people in the town have a remarkable sense of humor. Sometimes humor is more effective of getting rid of someone than anything else.

Morris is running on the platform of animal welfare and environmental
Stewardship. Can the citizens of VERACRUZ handle it?
