Curtis Sliwa lost badly to Eric Adams in his 2021 bid to become New York’s next mayor, but he remains a tireless self-promoter and on Wednesday he enlisted two cats for a media stunt involving rats and the man who roundly defeated him.

The problem of rats has literally hit home for Adams, who has twice received summonses for evidence of rodent infestation at his Brooklyn brownstone. He managed to get the first ticket dismissed last month after attesting that he had spent nearly $7,000 on rat mitigation. He was almost immediately hit with two more summonses for, among other things, allowing a “rat runway” to form by his front fence.

The solution Sliwa is proposing is cats, though of a rougher sort than Tiny and Thor, the two domesticated felines he and his wife, Nancy Regula, brought uninvited to a press conference outside Adams’ brownstone. Sliwa said these were just prop cats. He hopes to install feral ones and enlist a volunteer “manager” to make sure they have food and water.
