I sent this news item to a few friends with cats or cat affinities. The Siberian city of Barnaul apparently suffers not only from a dreary climate (I am presuming this), but a dreary line-up of mayoral candidates, as well. There is a push to draft Barsik the cat.
One of my friends wrote back, asking whether Effie would enter the coming Presidential race. I responded that I would not have her living in DC. But my husband reminded me of the Constitutional age requirement for President. Effie will not turn 35 until 2049, so the first election year for which she would be age-qualified will be 2052.
But hey, this is America, and it’s never too early to start campaigning!
Effie: A voice for an America waiting to be heard
