A Virginia cat named Hank is running for a seat in the Senate.
Hank the Cat of Fairfax County is seeking the United States Senate seat currently held by James Webb (who is not seeking re-election in 2012.)
The tabby mix has a website and a Facebook page, as well as lawn signs, bumper stickers, T-shirts and a slogan: "Milk in every bowl."
According to the “Hank for Senate” Facebook page, Hank, his mother and his siblings were found on the streets and were taken to an animal shelter, where they sat on death row before a group called Animal Allies took them in and found them homes.
His website crashed Monday afternoon because of all the publicity he’s getting.
For each new “like” on his "Hank for Senate" Facebook page, $1 will be donated to the Fairfax County Humane Society.
