After international vote, cats have emerged as winners. That's because  Hasbro has announced that a cat will become the newest token in the game of Monopoly.

The company ran a competition on Facebook called “Save Your Token” to elect which tokens the wanted to keep. Visitors then chose between a robot, a helicopter, a guitar, a diamond ring and one shiny little cat.

The iron lost out. The wheelbarrow was a close second. The original 1935 remaining tokens include the car, the thimble, the boot, the battleship and the hat. Scottie dog and the wheelbarrow were introduced in 1952.

The new token options came with back stories. The cat is Scottie the dog's arch rival. This could make for some interesting matches that will surely last for hours and maybe days into family vacations across the country.

On Feb. 15, a limited edition of the game will debut with all old and new tokens included.

Will the cat be your new choice when playing? Will you have to fight over who gets to use it? Tell us below!

I'd like to see a pet friendly version of Monopoly. Jail would be the shelter. Name properties after breeds. (Affenpinscer Ave.) Include tokens that represent pets. Cats, Dogs, Rabbits and others? Keep the theme but change it just enough to accomodate the idea.

It's about time! Took them over 60 years to level out the board.

I'm glad that the cat is the winner! Cats rule, dogs drool! Mac rules, PC drools!
