NORTH ARLINGTON, N.J. – Mayor Peter Massa put out a citywide cat call when his Maine Coon disappeared. Massa had an automatic call sent to 8,500 voters on Wednesday asking for help finding Max.
So we are clear, the mayor used city resources to find his cat. Strike that.Ã‚ To find his chubby cat. Is that the best use of funds? Maybe I shouldn’t be so tough on cats.Ã‚ We all deserve a little love, even if you play for the other side.
This does make me wonder what the announcement said. I imagine it was somewhere along these lines:
“Hi. This is Mayor Massa. A disaster of biblical proportions looms over our city. How can you help? By finding my cat. His name is Max and he’s fat. If you have seen him, let me know. Oh, don’t forget to vote for me in November.”
Turns out he didn’t have to look that far. Massa’s wife, Val, says 14-year-old Max was found inside a wall of their house Thursday morning. He had been missing since Tuesday.
Hmmm…outwitted by a cat. That doesn’t speak well for the Massas.
Val Massa says she doesn’t know how the 20-pound cat got in the 5-inch hole under the stairs.
What kind of mayor has a hole under his stairway? If he had any self respect he’d get the city maintenance dept to send over a few workers and have it fixed already.
The Massas had also offered a $500 reward.
Probably city funded. That’s enough to buy half an ounce of gold or enough money to fill up your empty gas tank.
