The Caturday Report! Cat Runs For Mayor!

Morris is the feline candidate's name. He has a Facebook page and Twitter account where he promises to "rid the [Mexican] city of rats," a local euphemism for corrupt politicians.

Besides going after rats, Morris only says that he will eat, sleep, yawn and conduct other cat-like activities. His campaign managers say that this is exactly why you should vote for him.

"Candidates here almost never fulfill their promises," said Jair Cuevas, one of the students who came up with the Morris campaign. "Our candidate promises to sleep, eat, yawn and play in the dirt and that is what he will do if he wins the election."

The gimmick became wildly popular after local newspapers picked it up this week, with Morris' Facebook page going viral. On Friday afternoon, Morris had more Facebook followers (50,000) than any of the city's human candidates, crushing Americo Zuñiga, who is currently the frontrunner in the race for mayor, by 20,000 "likes."
