A cat running for office is news you'd expect to hear on the Internet, but this is a real headline for the city of Xalapa, Mexico. In Xalapa there is a saying that the city is overrun with "rats," a term meaning "corrupt politicians."
Jair Cuevas is one of the students that elected Morris the cat to run for mayor. As the natural enemy of rats, this clever campaign makes a funny political statement. Morris the cat promises to fulfil all the promises he makes, which includes sleeping, eating and playing.
Morris the cat has gained a huge following on social media, with over 100,000 likes on Facebook and thousands of followers on Twitter. Unfortunately Morris has been ruled out as an actual candidate for the election.
