Elections can be tumultuous and divisive at times, but Carlton the cat may be the voice of unity that we can all get behind.
This campaign poster, shared by redditor Ynaffit96, announces Carlton’s bid for a seat on the University Board of Directors.
According to one of the comments, this university is Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and Carlton lives around the area and likes to hang around campus, enjoying the attention of students — though he’s not an official therapy animal.
Title aside, Carlton certainly has a compelling campaign slogan: “If I fits on the Board, I sits on the Board.” Considering that cats have been mayors, librarians, and train station masters, there’s no reason why Carlton cannot successfully serve on the University Board of Directors.
Of course, it would be wise to consider his policies: is he for or against the legalization of catnip? What are his feelings on emotional support animals being allowed on campus? Does he support equal opportunities for all felines?
One redditor, however, pointed out this formidable warning:
I, for one, welcome our feline overlords.
Vote Carlton for University Board of Directors!
