SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Voters dissatisfied with the choice of either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton for president have an alternative — the Cat in the Hat.

The Cat announced his candidacy Tuesday in Springfield, Massachusetts, outside the childhood home of Theodor Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss.

He also announced his running mates —Thing 1 and Thing 2.

The Republican newspaper says the Cat didn’t speak, but through a spokeswoman said he would be willing to release his tax returns.

The Cat’s platform includes working with Red Fish and Blue Fish to address ocean conservation, working with the Lorax on the environment and working with Sam I Am to address hunger.
