Jinx the Cat to be Mayor of Hell
Jinx the cat is famous on social media as an unusual-looking rescue, and now is set to be the mayor of Hell, population 72–Hell, Michigan, that is. The wide-eyed, large-pawed feline lives in California with her human, Mia, and presumably did not have to campaign too hard for the job. The township near Ann Arbor offers anyone a chance to be mayor for a day (or even an hour) for $25 an hour. No word on Jinx’s plans to run for higher office.
Where Do Outdoor Cats Go? Not Far…
A study used GPS tracking to follow a population of 100 cats in a small town in Eastern Norway, seeking to discover where indoor-outdoor cats go when they are not at home. Most cats, it turns out, stay fairly close to home: about 50 meters (164 feet) on average, with most not venturing beyond a quarter-mile at their farthest. A very small number were more adventurous and traveled miles from home, but at least in this study, that was the exception, not the rule.
