ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The honorary mayor of a tiny Alaska town is noticeably absent this week, when he should be hanging out at the general store or sipping his water-catnip concoctions from a wine glass at the pub next door.
Instead, Stubbs the cat is sedated and under veterinary care after he was badly injured in a vicious dog attack in Talkeetna, a quirky community of 900 that elected him in a write-in campaign 15 years ago. Talkeetna has no human mayor, so you could say 16-year-old Stubbs is the reigning leader — of the feline sort, anyway.

What would you do in case you were attacked by a monkey ?

The best thing to do is place an object between you and the monkey.

Like a door.

They should do like Russia: every mayor and governor has a bunch of armed bodyguards with him, always


:D

Were that kitty mayor of Narofominsk or Uryupinsk or such place, that dog who tried to mess with him would be shot dead upon approach ;)

Come on, now.

That cat's not the town Mayor.

He's the town Meowyer......

(Hope he does well, though. Looks just like the fat hunter I have at home. Same look of deep concern and worry in his face, too, LOL!)
