Stubbs, the honorary cat mayor of Talkeetna, Alaska, has survived an attempt on one of his nine lives at the paws of a would-be canine assassin.
KTUU-TV reports the feline that was given the title after his birth in 1997 was seriously injured Saturday night in an attack that left the small community stunned. The run-in with the four-legged assailant left the cat with multiple injuries, including a punctured lung and a fractured sternum; he's recovering at a veterinary hospital in Wasilla.
The would-be assassin is "in hiding," according to Stubbs' owner, Lauri Stec. She plans to have the dog captured by animal control. "As far as I'm concerned he needs to go away."
Donations for the cat mayor's treatment are being collected both online and via mail to Nagley's Store in Talkeetna.
