Normally, I don’t get involved with politics. I don’t have anything against politics or politicians. I’ve just never been a very politically oriented creature. Keeping my eye on my own two-legged friends and making sure they get all the cuddle-time and attention they need is work enough for me.
But this year I’ve come across a purrfect candidate that I just have to get behind. His name is Hank the Cat and he’s running for the senate in Virginia.
Now, Hank’s beginnings were humble. Being born to a single hard-working feline mom and ending up in a shelter at a very tender age, Hank knows the value of spaying and neutering for all cats. In fact, I feel confident that Hank knows how important the issue of veterinary care is for all of our feline clan. Too many of us never have the opportunity to see a vet. It seems so totally unfair that we cats outnumber dogs as pets and yet vets see fewer of us. That’s a disturbing fact that needs to change.
Take a look at this public service message from Hank. I think you’ll be impressed.
Once Hank gets elected to the senate in Virginia, the sky is the limit. Who knows, maybe he’ll eventually even set his sights on the White House. But, in the meantime, Hank has detractors too and they’re playing hard-ball, not cat and mouse. Take a look at this campaign ad.
Or this one.
You may have noticed that these ads were sponsored by the Canines for a Feline Free Tomorrow Super PAC. Well, I have a few things to say to this group. We cats are here and we’re here to stay. We’re not afraid of you and we know that you don’t speak for the whole canine race either. Some of us have canine friends and family that tell us they feel differently. And when push comes to shove, we’re pretty good at wrapping these two-legged creatures our around unopposable thumbs. Plus the fact that we’re pretty clever. So, if you really want a fight, bring it. We’ll be ready but, personally, I’m betting that your bark is worse than your bite.
