Anyone can become mayor of Hell for a day, according to MLive. The cost to rule Hell for the day is $100 for both humans and now animals. It includes a mayoral proclamation certificate, a Hell souvenir mug, souvenir shirt, and certificate of impeachment. The mayor also will own one square inch of property in Hell.
Jinx’s campaign began when her owner, Mia, asked social media to imaging Jinx running for president:
I made a joke on Twitter saying, ‘Imagine Jinx will run for president.’ I had also seen animal mayors before, and I sent a tweet out asking how to make Jinx mayor, and someone mentioned Michigan and that you could pay to be mayor of Hell for a day.
Mia livestreamed part of the cat’s 24-hour term on Twitch. Jinx also made proclamations for the day, including her intention to ban eggs, fill all bar establishments with only ranch dressing, and implement a 200% tax rate.
Mia rescued her three years ago and they live in California. Mia told MLive about how they met:
I rescued Jinx in 2018 and I wasn’t even looking for a cat. I came home early from a football game. I was supposed to be home much later. I heard meowing in my backyard and discovered her. She was super tiny, only about 3 weeks old.
Mia also mentioned how unique her kitten grew up to become:
She had big eyes and as she grew bigger, her eyes didn’t get smaller and I also noticed she had big feet. She doesn’t have a condition and the vet says she’s healthy. She just has these birth defects. She’s also not as agile as most cats and is a little clumsy. She only learned how to land on her feet a year ago.
