Nixon had Checkers, Clinton had Socks, and now Stephen Harper has Cheddar.
Kind of strange to see the man with the cold dead stare snuggled up with a fuzzy friend, no? According to the official Prime Minister of Canada website, Harper has been fostering cats for years through the Ottawa Humane Society and recently adopted Cheddar the Cat into the family. Not a bad charity to be associated with for a politician frequently accused of being an evil baby-devouring automaton.
Upon further investigation, it seems that this poor kitten isn’t the only cute friend Harper has snuggled to boost his popularity. Other victims include beloved Bonhomme, the cast of Corner Gas and a giant mythical dragon.
In the spirit of sites like I Can Has Cheezburger?, Torontoist invites readers to submit their own lolcats of this awesome photo or its sister image to [email protected].
