Cat lovers rejoice! Monopoly has added a new cat token to the classic game. 





After a month of voting in Hasbro's "Save Your Token" Facebook campaign, fans from 185 countries chose the cat over a toy robot, guitar, helicopter and diamond ring. The cat received 31 percent of the fan vote.

 

In the vote to decide which classic tokens would be saved by fans, the Scottie dog came out on top, securing 29 percent of the vote. Hasbro will retire its iron token and replace it with the cat. Monopoly games featuring the cat are expected to hit store shelves mid to late 2013.


The addition of the cat and saving of Scottie dog proves Monopoly fans from all over the globe are real animal lovers, and that's a victory for the pet industry.
