Is your Pet smarter than the local Politicians?

MEXICO CITY (AP) — 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 kitten with orange eyes, is running for mayor of Xalapa in eastern Mexico with the campaign slogan "Tired of Voting for Rats? Vote for a Cat." And he is attracting tens of thousands of politician-weary, two-legged supporters on social media.

#"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 feline last year.

#Put forth as a candidate by Chamorro and a group of friends after they became disillusioned with the empty promises of politicians, Morris' candidacy has resonated across Mexico, where citizens frustrated with human candidates are nominating their pets and farm animals to run in July 7 elections being held in 14 states.

#Also running for mayor are "Chon the Donkey" in the border city of Ciudad Juarez, "Tina the Chicken" in Tepic, the capital of the Pacific coast state of Nayarit, "Maya the Cat" in the city of Puebla and "Tintan the Dog" in Oaxaca City, though their campaigns are not as well organized as that of Morris.

Well we have a total of 4 dogs and 4 cats and they all have varying levels of intelligence but I have no doubt each and every one of them is much smarter than any of our local politicians...

in fact I have a box of agates from the shore of Lake Superior and I'd say they probably surpass most of our local politicians on a good day.

Thanks for posting this MN 8) 8) 8)

In fact I've been trying to trap a couple of woodchucks out by the barn and I'd say they're probably smarter than the cumulative knowledge of all the politicians in southeast Michigan 8* 8* 8*

I hear you.  They woodchucks are harder to pin down then getting a straight answer out of a politician.

Fry that up and it would be called lunch from down here where I'm at.

I have one, maybe two, out by the river bank.  I'm afraid they may create a "sink hole" up in my yard like it appears one did at my neighbors place.

Where you taking them too BRD?

And I may want to borrow that from you sometime if you don't mind.
