Monopoly-cat-jpg.jpg?format=rsss_2.0

Thanks to a bunch of single old women who love cats the iron from Monopoly has been replaced.

The Scottie dog is about to have a new friend to chase around the Monopoly board.

Following a month-long nationwide vote from fans, Hasbro took to the Today show to announce that it will retire the iron from the game’s iconic pieces, replacing it with a cat.

While some fans were worried about the fate of beloved tokens like the pooch or the race car, neither was ever in much danger of being eliminated. (The Scottie dog, in fact, was the most popular token, with 29 percent of the vote to save it.) Hasbro says the boot, iron and wheelbarrow were always in the red zone with players.

In fact, all three tokens were virtually tied for last place until late Tuesday night, when iron haters pushed the appliance over the edge, sending it to jail without passing Go and without collecting $200. In the end, just 8 percent of voters wanted to save the iron.

Fans were presented with five replacement token options, including a helicopter, a diamond ring, a robot, a guitar, and a cat. But this is was an Internet vote -- the same Internet that can't seem to get enough of our feline friends.

In retrospect, the kitty was bound to win.

The same people who voted for cat are the same people who wanted to make Monopoly a 1 player game as well

The only acceptable pieces to use are the Car, the Top Hat, and the Dog. Even if it is a little Yorkie.

How you can leave it up to the internet and expect any outcome besides a cat is beyond me.

Well that is since a narwhal wasn't a choice...
