A small earth cat
In the Babylon 5 episode called "Day of the Dead," Londo Molari muses on his future role as Emperor of Centauri: "Now anyone can be emperor. I can be emperor. Vir can be emperor! Vir can be emperor. A small Earth cat can be emperor."
Upon watching this episode, amanuensis wisely remarked: "Wait! A small earth cat is emperor."
Humans have recognized feline rulers for many centuries. The Egyptian god Ra, whose symbol was the sun, was a kind of cat emperor. Historically, cats have preferred to sit in the sunlight.
I like to sit on the bottom step, where afternoon sun turns my fur to white fire.

Cats are the natural rulers of this world! Anyone who doubts it should be turned to kibble.
