We previously mentioned that a cat was running for mayor of Veracruz's state capital, Xalapa in Mexico.
His name is Morris and his campaign is actually gaining traction!! He's a social media star!
His Facebook page has over 130,000 likes! That's more than any other candidate!
Heck, that's even more than Veracruz's current governor!!
Morris' owner said:
"Morris has become an expression of how fed up people are with all the parties and a political system that does not represent us."
People are so inspired by the message that Morris is sending that other animals have begun running for office! There's a donkey in Ciudad Juárez, a dog in Oaxaca and a chicken in Tepic, all trying to get elected!
Hopefully all of this is really sending a message that the people have had enough of political corruption!!
The head of Veracruz's electoral institute is pleading that people don't throw away their votes, but we think Morris is already too popular!
VOTE MORRIS THE CAT!!
