Jinx, a three-year-old domestic shorthair with unusually large eyes, will be inaugurated mayor of Hell, Michigan on Sunday, April 24th. Edward Pevos reports Cat known for huge eyes, wonky feet to become mayor of small Michigan town:

HELL, MI – A cat known for her oversized eyes and wonky feet is about to become the mayor of a small Michigan town. And not just any town. This little black cat will rule over Hell, located about 20 miles northwest of Ann Arbor.

Anyone can become mayor of Hell for a day. It’s part of the town’s schtick. Pets, though, are another thing. Sunday, April 24 will actually be the first time a cat will make sure all Hell doesn’t break loose.

As Jinx grew over the days and weeks, Mia says she noticed her new kitten appeared to be a little different.

“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.”

Jinx will rule over Hell for the day from afar [Jinx lives in California with her human, Mia]. Mia plans to livestream via Jinx’s Twitch page at around 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT where she will make the big announcement to viewers.
