Vote Morris El Candigato!

Meet Morris, a black-and-white kitten with orange eyes, who is running for mayor of Xalapa in eastern Mexico with the campaign slogan “Tired of Voting for Rats? Vote for a Cat.”

“He sleeps almost all day and does nothing, and that fits the profile of a politician,” 35-year-old office worker Sergio Camacho, who adopted the 10-month-old feline last year, told the AP.

Morris’ candidacy has appealed to citizens across Mexico, and others are nominating their pets and farm animals to run in July 7 elections being held in 14 states.
