Is your pet an aristocat or lord of the hounds? Now they can be. They probably won’t appreciate it, but the Republic of Wynnum has extended its cash for honours program to include our furry and feathered friends.
Now, for the princely sum of $15, you can make your favourite animal a lord, lady or – within reason – whatever title you choose. In exchange you receive a special aristocratic passport for your pet and a certificate of title to hang on the wall.
You can of course also pick up a regular passport for yourself, if you’re not already a citizen, at around twenty passport offices in the republic (listed here), or go online and become an aristocrat yourself, or buy a title for someone else. Becoming a citizen of the Republic and getting a passport does not cost anything, but joining the aristocracy does.
