Move over, iron. After a 76-year run as an iconic Monopoly token, Hasbro just announced the iron will be replaced…by a cat! Joining the other classic tokens, the new feline piece conquered the competition—a toy robot, guitar, helicopter and diamond ring—in a contest on the Monopoly Facebook page. This is the very first time game fans have had a choice in which tokens to add and which to toss.

While we’re a bit sad to see the iron go, we think voters made the right choice. How about you?

P.S. Check out some of the super-cute cats currenty available at the ASPCA.
