A dead cat in Atlanta, Georgia, was sent a voter registration form in the mail so that it could vote for Democrats, according to multiple reports on Friday.
Oddly, the cat has been dead for well over a decade.
The news was reported by Fox 5 Atlanta.

The cat’s one-time owner, Ron Tims, said that he checked his mailbox this week and there was the registration card for Cody the cat, a pet that died 12 years ago.
“A great cat, indoor and outdoor, loved his family, loved his neighborhood. He was 18 and a half when he passed away,” said Carol Tims.
The Tims were surprised, and a bit amused when they saw what Cody received in the mail.
“We have a voter registration application for Cody Tims! How did this happen? It’s not reality, he’s a cat and he’s been dead for a long time,” said Carol Tims.
Officials denied having a hand in the mailing:
The Secretary of State’s Office says the application did not come from their office. They say third party groups often use mailing lists to get names and addresses. They released a statement saying:
“Third-party groups all over the country are targeting Georgia to help register qualified individuals. This group makes you wonder what these out-of-town activists are really doing. Make no mistake about it, this office is dedicated to investigating all types of fraud.”
Breitbart’s Kyle Olson noted, “Pets, some named ‘Mozart’ and ‘Scampers,’ have also received applications in Florida, Colorado, and Washington state.”
But, don’t worry. Mail-in elections are totally legit.
