Stubbs, the honorary feline mayor of Talkeetna, Ala., has died at the age of 20.

The cat's owner announced his death on Saturday, noting that Stubbs lived for 20 years and three months. "He was a trooper until the very last day of his life; meowing at us throughout the day to pet him or to come sit on the bed with him and let him snuggle and purr for hours in our lap," the Spone family wrote in a statement.
