This mayoral hopeful in Mexico promises to eat, sleep most of the day and donate his leftover litter to fill potholes. Morris, a black-and-white cat, 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," said 35-year-old office worker Sergio Chamorro, who adopted the 10-month-old cat last year.
Morris' candidacy has resonated across Mexico, where citizens are nominating their pets and farm animals to run in July 7 elections. Morris' campaign managers are asking supporters to write in "Morris" or draw a cat's face on the ballot to send a message to authorities.
