Stubbs, the honorary feline mayor of Talkeetna, Alaska, walks out of the West Rib Bar and Grill in 2016.
Stubbs, who liked to drink water and catnip from a margarita glass, was elected mayor of Talkeetna in 1998.



Stubbs, the honorary feline mayor of the Alaska town of Talkeetna, has died at the age of 20.

The animal’s owners announced the cat’s death late on Saturday in a statement.

“Stubbs lived for 20 years and 3 months,” the family wrote

“He was a trooper until the very last day of his life; meowing at us throughout the day to pet him or to come sit on the bed with him and let him snuggle and purr for hours in our lap.”

A lovely story - I can almost hear the opening credits for Northern Exposure already.  Here's hoping Denali can walk in his furry footsteps:-)

Aw, poor guy, but he had a long and lovely life. Run free, Stubbs!

We spread Dill's ashes just now - so he is now running free.

Bearing in mind how friendly Bingley is (eg. Always in other people's houses) , I thought he would make a pretty cool mayor of our village :-)

Good for you! Closure is so important. *hugs*

I agree. He reminds me of our old tom, Growltiger. He had a passion for cars and trucks and would climb in any open ones. We had to get him chipped because we were afraid that he was going to end up in another state.

I was worried that Dill's chip would be in with his ashes, so Hubby had a quick look see just in case.

They usually take the chips out after they cremate them or so my vet tells me.
