Mexicans Running Animals, Had It With Humans

Morris, a black-and-white kitten with orange eyes, is running for mayor of Xalapa in eastern Mexico with the campaign slogan “Tired of Voting for Rats? Vote for a morris_the_cat_mayorl_candidateCat.” And he is attracting tens of thousands of politician-weary, two-legged supporters on social media. He promises to eat, sleep most of the day and donate his leftover litter to fill potholes.

Also running for mayor are “Chon the Donkey” in the border city of Ciudad Juarez, “Tina the Chicken” in Tepic, the capital of the Pacific coast state of Nayarit, “Maya the Cat” in the city of Puebla and “Tintan the Dog” in Oaxaca City, though their campaigns are not as well organized as that of Morris.
