    National polls show that voters all over the country are losing faith in their elected leaders. But the 900 residents of Talkeetna, Alaska, say their mayor is doing a great job bringing in tourist dollars and has served in office for over a decade.

    "He's good. He's probably the best we've ever had," resident Lauri Stec tells KTUU. "He was just in the Alaska Magazine, and he's been featured in a few different things."...

    ...That's because the 15-year-old mayor is actually a cat, who was elected to office as a write-in candidate shortly after his birth...

    You know, I can particulary see an Orange cat being a good mayor - there is something about orange cats, they have that "it" factor.

    I may have to write-in the leader of my own "pride", Half-Chin, for this years local election. He is a tuxedo cat but quite in control of the situation in my household, so I have high hopes he could run a town with equal success...

    Wasn't a cat a mayor of London at some point? Or am I just believing a little too much Marguerite Henry?

    Cats just have a natural authority thing going on. However, I wonder how Hizzoner the Mayor feels when he gets stuffed into the crate for vet visits. Surprised there's no city ordinance banning cat carriers yet...
