In 1997 Stubbs was elected as the honorary mayor of Talkeetna, Alaska (population of 900) following a successful write-in campaign by voters who opposed the human candidates. He ran again this year after coming out of his cat-nap of retirement, but unfortunately didn't win. Don't worry Stubbs, you're a winner in our heart.
"A year ago, we adopted little 3-year-old Monty boy from an animal shelter. Monty was born without a nasal bridge (the bone in the nose) which affects him now and then and makes him sneeze a bit. Nevertheless, his personality, he showed from the very beginning, is rare as a diamond! Monty shared a room with some of the other cats from the animal shelter that acted a little aggressive, but Monty remained uneager to pick a fight. Monty also has a tendency to urinate in his sleep due to a leaky/loose bladder. He becomes embarrassed when he finds out, so we are struggling to encourage him not to be since this is a problem he can't fix and has to learn to live with. He loves lying on your lap and at night he'll keep you company until you wake up. His favorite place to cuddle is by far in the arms of his dad Michael. Monty is almost never afraid, he even loves being at the vet, a brave little fella. We wish for Monty to be an ambassador for 'crooked' cats or cats that may not look perfect in everyone's eyes! We also want to raise attention to the fact that looking different doesn't mean you can't be fantastic."
