Cats have been an important part of human life for many years now, whether we realize it or not.
They’ve been ingrained in society in one way or another for centuries and their roles have truly evolved drastically. Nowadays, we definitely regard them as kings and queens of our households and they definitely rule our heart. But did you know that there was once a tabby cat that was named the Mayor of a town in Alaska for 20 years? This cat was actually elected to this position in the town of Talkeetna, and even though he didn’t end up making, passing, or implementing any laws, he was loved by everyone!
