SALT LAKE CITY - A typo has changed a group of Utah politicians from donkeys to cats.

Things began with a typo in a headline, which caught the attention of Utah House Democrats.

Fox 13's own Ben Winslow got in on the fun, tweeting: "By resolution (and a typo in a headline), the @utahhousedems are officially the "Democats." Expect A LOT of cat gifs today... #utpol #utleg."

The Utah House "Democats" responded with a side-by-side comparison of Minority Leader Brian King and Grumpy Cat.

The bill in the legislature would outlaw drones from harassing farm animals.

So the Senate Republicans responded to a drone "Democat" picture saying "as long as you aren't chasing our cows."
