If you remember back in the beginning of the year the makers of the Monopoly game thought it was time for one of the tokens to go. The took a pole and the token that was given the heave ho was the iron.  The replacement for the iron, by your vote was the cat.  The cat has finally been added to the game, if you purchase a new Monopoly game you will now get the cat.  For some they think that it's great the the dog now has a rival on the board.
