With less than two weeks remaining in the race for the Mayor of Divide, Buster the black and white cat leads the chase.

Buster held a little more than a 300-vote lead over a bloodhound named Pa Kettle at the end of business on Thursday. Votes for each of 11 animals in the running are counted when people make donations to the Teller County Regional Animal Shelter in each candidate’s name. Buster had 1,656 votes by Thursday.

The 2014 field includes Buster, Pa Kettle, a donkey, a wolf, a hedgehog and others.

The new mayor will be named at 7 p.m. on April 8 when the 2014 fundraiser ends. The mayoral election format began in Divide in 2010 when Sprite the dog won the inaugural contest. Sprite, who has raised the most money for TCRAS in two elections, was succeeded by Walter the three-legged cat in 2012.
