Mayor Stubbs, the cat
A cat named Stubbs has been the mayor of Talkeetna, Alaska for nearly all of his life.
The small town of nearly 900 residents elected their feline mayor, called Stubbs nearly 15 years ago. He was named
honorary mayor shortly after his birth, and now locals refer to him as "Mayor Stubbs".
The story goes that several of the town residents didn't like the candidates who were running for Mayor and as a joke, they encouraged enough people to elect Stubbs the cat as a "write in" candidate.
Funnily enough Stubbs won, and has been a tourist attraction ever since.
Now every summer thousands of tourists flock to Alaska for a glimpse of the famous feline.
