Meet Limberbutt, the Tabby Cat Who's Running for President

Limberbutt McCubbins was officially registered as a candidate.

— -- If this presidential candidate wins next year, it will be by a whisker.

His name is Limberbutt McCubbins, a registered federal office-seeker — who happens to be a cat.

McCubbins, 17, said the steps to register Limberbutt as a candidate only took her friend a short time to complete.

Being that Limberbutt is a feline, McCubbins said there's no need to beef up his campaign, adding that she's aware her gray tabby may not have much of a shot going far in the race.

"It's just a fun thing to pass the time," McCubbins said. "It's the summer and there's no homework, so we enter our cats in the presidential race."
