Cats Rule


Sparkle's Birthday is today and it coincides with Cat World Domination Day. CWDD is like most Holidays. It points out the obvious but gives the rest of the world a day to honor us and remember the brave cats who have gone before. *bows head* Yes, we dominate every day.

Campaign sticker from Facebook
Just the other day Pop was reading me a story about a cat, named Morris (not the 9 Lives Morris), who's running for mayor of Xalapa, Mexico. Morris has a Facebook page and has gotten support from such famous cats as Stubbs, the Mayor of a small Alaskan town who has held office for the past 15 years. As far as FB likes, Morris has left his competitor in the dust: 130,000 to 33,000. Morris' campaign platform includes protesting corruption in Mexico's political system. In addition, any funds he raises will be donated to local animal shelters. There are other non-humans also running in Mexico including Tina the Chick-hen, Maya the Cat, Chon the Donkey and Tintan the Dog.

JJ's campaign poster
In Australia, my furrend Jessie Janie is running as a proud member of their Feline Pawty. Click the link to view their Campaign Central. We know Jessie is a great Mouser and she'll be a great Shadow Minispurr for Sneakiness.

Last year, Catsparella did a comprehensive list of every cat running for office in 2012.

I'm thinking of throwing my catnip smousy into the governor's race in NJ. Governor Waddles is a popular governor but as far as the peeps tell me, he hasn't done anything he's promised. He promised property taxes wouldn't go up and he cut aid to transportation and local munipalities so the peeps taxes have just about doubled since he took office. This has got to stop and I'm just the cat to do it. I'll be exploring how to go about getting my name on the ballot and seeing if I have enough time to do it. I believe I have to get some name on a petition to start the ball rolling. My only obstacle may be TW. If she hasn't got my Zazzle shop running in 4 years, I wonder how she's gonna set up a petition.

The cat lobby—numbers too big to ignore.

Well, you just have to find the right incentive for your human to assist you. It is difficult to work with humans, I think.

Thanks for stopping by yesterday, for my/my human's Gotcha Day pawty!
