      Thanks, Horace for that story. AM glad that pootie is OK.

      Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup. Same goes with cats. We have claws and teeth! DaPootieQueensArt

    •  There is another Alaska town... (2+ / 0-)

      ... with a pootie by the name of Stubbs who was elected Mayor a few years ago.  Poor little fellow was attacked by a dog, severely injured, and still at the vet clinic, but alive.

      Alaska town roots for feline mayor attacked by dog
      AP: Rachel D'Oro, 5 Sept 2013
      ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The honorary mayor of a tiny Alaska town is noticeably absent this week, when he should be hanging out at the general store or sipping his water-catnip concoctions from a wine glass at the pub next door.

      Instead, Stubbs the cat is sedated and under veterinary care after he was badly injured in a vicious dog attack in Talkeetna, a quirky community of 900 that elected him in a write-in campaign 15 years ago. Talkeetna has no human mayor, so you could say 16-year-old Stubbs is the reigning leader — of the feline sort, anyway.

      "He's everybody's guy," said Stubbs' owner, Lauri Stec, who manages Nagley's General Store, where the orangey-beige cat lives and mingles with locals and tourists alike. Saturday's attack by the loose dog left Stubbs with a punctured lung, bruised hips, a long deep gash on his side and a sternum fractured to the point it might need to be repaired with a plate.

      Stec, who said she knows the dog that was involved, has reported the attack with borough animal control officials.

      The link now has a pix of Stubbs before he was injured, and two that show him bandaged and looking miserable.

      I hope the poor little fella makes it through this.  That long list of injuries sounds painful.  I don't know what they're going to do about the dog who attacked Stubbs (but if that had been a human who caused Stubbs that much misery, I wouldn't give a plug nickel for the safety or well-being for the individual who harmed a town's mayoral mascot - he sounds positively adorable).

      I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
