In the cat-fight to win appointment to the Tacoma City Council, one candidate is showing his claws:  Stanley the Cat has thrown his collar into the ring, seeking to fill either of two vacancies now facing the council.

Not to be outdone by a host of would-be council-members now campaigning on Facebook, the local feline has his own page on the social networking site devoted to promoting his candidacy:

Dedicated to building support for Stanley the Cat’s bid to fill one of the two vacancies left on the City Council in this dog-eat-dog political world.

In addition, Stanley’s Facebook page notes in recent news that he’s already drawn strong endorsements for the council gig:

Stanley has garnered the support of the League of Alley Cats and the the Union of Human Society Workers, demonstrating that he can work both sides of the fence – as well as walk a fine line on top of it.

Only in Tacoma.
