A Token of Our Love

Let’s hear it for Hasbro, Cat Ladies!

Did we ever doubt that a cat would prevail as the newest token on the Monopoly game board?

When I saw the breaking news announced on websites this morning, I smiled and thought to myself, “Tell me something I don’t already know.” But I didn’t know the percentage of votes, and I wasn’t aware that, of the old tokens, the Scottie Dog was a fan favorite, earning 29 percent of the vote. I had to throw a dog a bone….

I haven’t played Monopoly in a very long time, and now there is a built-in, meow-y incentive.

Query of the Day: Did you and every Cat Lady you know cast your vote for the cat token?
