A small town in Alaska called Talkeetna has had a cat named Stubbs as mayor for the past fifteen years. Stubbs was elected into office after a unanimous vote deciding that the residents did not like the human candidates that were running.
Mayor Stubbs spends most of his time at a local general store where as many as forty tourists come visit him daily.
