ANCHORAGE- The popular feline mayor of an Alaska town is limited to solitary confinement these days as he slowly recovers from severe injuries sustained in a vicious attack by a loose dog.
Before the attack, Stubbs, the honorary mayor of Talkeetna, had free reign of the quirky town that elected him 15 years ago. He greeted visitors to his home at Nagley's General Store and enjoyed catnip-spiked water served in a wine glass at the next-door bar.
Now, the 16-year-old orange cat must be kept quiet so he can mend from injuries that included a fractured sternum and punctured lung.
Nagley's assistant manager Skye Farrar says Stubbs also is healing from the trauma of the Aug. 31 mauling in town, 115 miles north of Anchorage.
