In other mews, it's time to play Meownopoly!

How can it be a tokin’ cat without catnip?

Tuxedo Cat--all dressed up with nowhere to GO.

The doggie token is banished.

TxT’s opinion about the catnip: It’s GREAT!

If you're a fan of Monopoly then you know that about a year ago Parker Brothers said bye bye, iron, and hello, kitty. The board game that's been around since the 1930s introduced a cat that will replace the iron as one of the tokens, or game pieces. (Don't worry, the thimble is hanging in).

Purists of the board game might not like the move, but game-maker Hasbro let the cat -- in huge form -- roam around London.

The celebri-cat was photographed posing on Millennium Bridge, approaching a Tube station and visiting the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, where at least one dog jumped on its back. And maybe the Scottie dog token will have some competition now that the cat joins the other choices of race car, thimble, shoe, battleship, top hat and wheelbarrow.

Earlier in the year fans from more than 185 countries weighed in on Facebook to select the cat as the new token over a robot, diamond ring, helicopter or standard guitar.

"While we're a bit sad to see the iron go, the cat token is a fantastic choice by the fans and we have no doubt it will become just as iconic as the original tokens," Eric Nyman, senior vice president and global brand leader for Hasbro Gaming, says in a statement.


[font color=green]The cat lover’s edition doesn’t have an excise tax, but $75 for catnip? Yes, my fur is ruffled.

Meanwhile, instead of railroads there is the yarn, box, paper bag and scratching post. The utilities were replaced by mouse and fish. But what really hurts is that the income tax was replaced by litter box maintenance. However, I also think they missed on a mew oppurrtunities by not substituting “Window Sill Cat Perch” fur “Free Parking” and “Go to Vet” instead of “Go to Jail” with a picture of a cat carrier.[/font]
