This Alaska cat mayor rules with a furry fist!
Mayor Stubbs the orange tabby has been the honorary mayor of town of Talkeetna, Alaska, for almost 15 years. Residents of the small town were unhappy with their mayoral candidates years ago and encouraged enough people to elect Stubbs as a write-in candidate.
The election earned him enough press to put the town, which is at the base of Mount McKinley, on the map as a tourist destination.
If you would like to visit the stubby-tailed mayor, you can find him holding court at the local general store where he greets dozens of tourists weekly.
