Change is coming to Monopoly.

No, your little brother will probably still cheat ("You didn't have those $500s a second ago! Mom!"), you won't land on Boardwalk (ever), and by the end of the game you'll probably be furious ("MOM! STOP PUTTING HOTELS ON ALL YOUR PROPERTY. THIS ISN'T FAIR.")

But at least now you can play one six-hour round of the classic board game as...a cat!

Hasbo announced on their Facebook that, after polling fan votes, the cat game piece beat out a toy robot, guitar, helicopter and diamond ring to officially make it to the game board.

Who knew people on the internet liked cats?!

The Scotty dog was not available for comment at the time of publishing.

And it's in with the new and out with the old: Because the iron, a staple of the Monopoly pieces since the 1930s, is officially getting the boot (also voted on by fans, because, really, have you ever seen someone excited to be the iron?).

Maybe let's circle back on that toy robot next year? We could probably get rid of that stupid old shoe, too.
