The Pets Who Have Run for Political Office in the US

In a country divided on just about everything, there’s one issue with the potential to unify our nation: getting more pets into politics.

On April 24, Jinx, the big-eyed black cat with over 435,000 Instagram followers, was the first pet mayor of Hell, Michigan, a town outside of Ann Arbor, Michigan that offers a “Mayor of the Day” package for $100. It’s the first time the small town had a non-human ruler, and for the sake of adorable internet content we hope it won’t be the last. Although Jinx has not yet delivered their list of executive orders, we’re anticipating them to focus on increased access to sardines, feline maternal health, and a long-awaited laser pointer ban.
