Help name Stephen Harper's new cat!
Prime Minister Stephen Harper's as-yet-unnamed new cat.
It’s the capper to a near purrfect spring after winning his long-sought majority: Prime Minister Stephen Harper has a new pet cat.
The Harpers announced the arrival of the newest, furry member of their family Saturday on the prime minister’s Facebook page — and offered the public the chance to name the grey tabby.
“Happy to have a new Harper at 24,” a statement on the site said. “He’s a grey tabby and needs a name, vote for your favourite.”
Early suggestions from commenters included Majority (or Major), as well as Stanley, in honour of the Vancouver Canucks’ run toward the NHL’s grand prize.
Pictures were posted on Facebook, including one of the kitty mischievously holding a string in its two front paws.
Harper is known as a cat lover. He and wife Laureen have participated in the Ottawa Humane Society’s Foster Program, which provides temporary homes for pets in the community who are not yet ready for adoption.
The naming poll will close Monday.
