Last week, Mr. Nuts was just a regular black-and-white cat with a penchant for making predictions with his litter box. Today, he's an A-lister of election forecasters.
After the news that Mr. Nuts made a bold, smelly prediction that Mitt Romney would lose the presidential race, the Constitution Center of Philadelphia put him on its top 10 list of unusual presidential endorsers.
Mr. Nuts, who shares space with the Michael Ostrofsky family of Fremont, joins Honey Boo Boo, Kim Kardashian, Madonna, Meat Loaf, Gene Simmons, Martin Sheen, Hulk Hogan, Axl Rose and Joss Whedon on the list.
"We showed him the list," says Ostrofsky, the founder of Five Pet Place, which produces luxury cat furniture. "The only reaction we got was when we said Meat Loaf, and we're pretty sure that was because he thought food was involved."
Mr. Nuts uses his designer litter box instead of a crystal ball to make predictions. And he picks the losers, not winners, because Ostrofsky says, when you deal with Mr. Nuts' litter box, you're losing.
Two years ago Mr. Nuts picked the Pittsburgh Steelers to lose the Super Bowl; last year he deposited his vote of shame on the New England Patriots.
This time, Ostrofsky designate the litter box one the right for Romney and the one of the left of President Obama. The scoop? Mr. Nuts did his business in the Republican candidate's box.
Ostrofsky has been giving interviews about his cat's forecasting abilities, but Mr. Nuts wasn't letting his sudden fame go to his head. All that limelight interferes with his naps.
