Jinx, a black cat with a huge social following on TikTok, will serve as mayor of Hell, Michigan for one day on Sunday.
In Hell, located about 60 miles west of Detroit, people can seek to become the city’s mayor before being “impeached” at the end of the day. The experiment costs $100, MLive reported.
Reverend Vonn, the official minister of Hell, Michigan, told USA TODAY that Jinx will be Hell’s first pet mayor.
“We’re so excited,” she said. “It’s our first animal.”
She added that Jinx’s upcoming tenure has also inspired other pet owners to get their pets involved in politics.
“I got a lot of inquiries from the mayor, and someone actually sent in a request saying, ‘That’s not going to be enough. My dog is jealous,” Vonn said. “They want their dog to be mayor in about a month.”
