Good news cat lovers! Move over, Laundromat Lotharios.
Hasbro, the manufacturer who has a capital on things Monopoly®, announced today that after a landslide Facebook vote, one of its more questionable game tokens would be replaced by something a little bit more…en-purring.
Beating out four other token possibilities, including a robot, a diamond ring, a helicopter, and a guitar, Cleopatra herself can breathe a sigh of relief to know that the cat is back on top.
Joining the ilk of the already established car, thimble, boot, Scottie dog, battleship, hat, and wheelbarrow, the cat’s design follows the others in sleek monotone chrome and will be the joy of single 50-something women everywhere.

But don’t be so steamed, clean freaks. The iron token will still be a game piece standard throughout the rest of 2013 as Hasbro rolls out their…pawsomely democratic new edition.
