Russian Cat to Be a New Politician in the Urals Region

Three-month-old cat in the Ural city of Yekaterinburg plans to launch a political career, aiming for a seat in the legislature of the city.

      Following the example of Hank, an eight-year-old Maine Coon who is running for Senate in Virginia as an independent candidate, Russian cat Bublik and his owner Ivan Kolotovkin started PR-company for promotion the new political player.

      Bublik also has its own pages on Facebook and Vkontakte social networks. Ivan Kolotovkin plans to organize rally of his supporters shortly in Yekaterinburg, and make an agitation video.

      "Future politician Bublik is now seeking for the supporters. He was born only three months ago, but already has clear political views. Follow Bublik!", it is said in the statement placed in social networks.

      Biblik is likely to start his career through the legislative elections in Yekaterinburg, a city of 1.4 million, set for March 2013. His main slogan will be probably be "For the Funny Future!"

      Kolotovkin is sure in his cat's success. “He’s the best because he’s the only politician who gives no promises,” he said, “he mostly keeps silent, you see.”

      Hank and Bublik are the first cats to go into politics, before them, there were Woodrow and Percy, dogs who ran for the Texas governorship in 2010 and a seat on the Congress in Florida in 2002, respectively. Unfortunately, they both didn't win.
