SPRINGFIELD, Massachusetts — Voters who think presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton fall flat can now choose the Cat in the Hat.

The Cat announced his candidacy Tuesday in Springfield, Massachusetts, outside the childhood home of Dr. Seuss.

He also announced his running mates —Thing 1 and Thing 2.

The Republican newspaper (http://bit.ly/2aeKMUy ) reports the Cat said through a spokeswoman that he would be willing to release his tax returns.

The Cat’s platform includes working with Red Fish and Blue Fish to address ocean conservation, working with the Lorax on the environment and working with Sam I Am to address hunger.

The event served as the official launch for the new Random House book “One Vote, Two Votes, I Vote, You Vote.”
