I’ve always thought that the world might be a much better place if a cat could be president. Limberbutt McCubbins, a five-year-old cat from Louisville, KY, has sumbitted a statement of candidacy to the Federal Election Commission, along with 477 others (presumably, humans.) High schooler Isaac Weiss, a friend of Limberbutt’s guardian Emilee McCubbins, filed the cat’s statement of candidacy. “It only took us about 20 minutes to fill out the forms, ” Weiss told the Miami Herald. “And it surprised us even more that nobody from the FEC got back to us about Limberbutt being a cat after reporters started doing stories.” Read more about Limberbutt’s attempt to make a run for the presidency in the Tampa Bay Times.
