Do you ever just stare at your cat and suspect that there’s more to your pet than your furball is willing to show? Yet, no amount of coaxing or bribery with catnip can make it confess? Don’t worry, stash your interrogation lamp back into the closet and spare yourself the frustration of making your kitty talk. We did the dirty job of digging around to see what secrets these mysterious creatures keep. Good news: no skeletons were found. If anything, these pieces of information that we discovered will actually make you hug your cat a little tighter and say, “I just love you, you cute little ball of fur!”
1. Cats can stomach politics.
In 1997, in the beautiful historical district of Talkeetna, Alaska, the people decided that they had enough of humans that they actually elected a cat named Stubbs to the mayoralty seat. There had been some opposition, because, duh, what is politics without it, claiming the illegitimacy of Stubbs’ election into office. Stubbs has never released a statement about these protesters and still remains the honorary mayor of Talkeetna.
