Mark Spencer, MP for Sherwood, has posted a video of his cat online, as Battersea Dogs and Cats Home launch their first online election poll to crown Westminster's cat of the year.
The Nottingham politician's cat is called 'Parsnip' and the furry feline is up against other moggies nominated by MP's and Lords in Westminster.
To be crowned 'Pur Minister' of cats, the contestants have provided a 50-word manifesto - or 'manifursto' as it is being called - setting out why they think their pet is the best candidate.
Battersea's head of Cattery, Lindsey Quinlan, said of the competition:
"We're really excited about our Westminster top cat competition and hope MP's have great fun entering their cat and the cat-loving public enjoy choosing their 'Purr Minister'"
