Political Pets Speak Out!Published November 4, 2008
Election Day is finally here! Thank goodness fingernail chewing and high anxiety about its outcome that lots of humans are experiencing is almost over. Being cats in a household where our human companion pawrents are so actively involved, can be incredibly stressful. They constantly watch MSNBC checking for any slight changes in the national and regional polls. They often wring their hands and sigh a lot! They make tons of phone calls, which takes their attention away from us, making sure that their friends are registered and are voting today! They spend a huge amount of time on the Internet, checking voting trends and early voting statistics by the hour! They pace the floors, and worry. I tell ya, life has not been easy living with our humans, lately. Thankfully they remember to feed us on time and clean our litter boxes. But are we the only cats in America who are impacted so drastically by their human pawrents reaction to the political climate these days? Are we the only cats in the country who are upset that they are not eligible to vote? We have lots of questions that remain unanswered, and we must tell ya it would make our nine lives a whole lot easier if our meows and hisses could be heard. We feel strongly that it is very unfair we are not purrmitted a voice! It became so frustrating for us we had to find an outlet to express our strong feelings. After extensive research, done secretly in the middle of the night after our pawrents fell into a fitful sleep, we found a place where we could be heard. We hooked up with Pets for Obama, where over a thousand caring and concerned felines, canines and feathered and finned critters daily interact. This active website created just for pets is a place where we are all joined for a single purpose. We are proud to belong to a group where cats, dogs and other pets understand our feelings and where we can express ourselves openly. While every vote counts for humans, here every meow, arf, chirp and whinny is greeted warmly and makes a difference. Yes we can!! And while we are relieved that tonight our pawrents may be restored to a semblance of sanity and return to the lifestyle to which we have become accustomed, at the same time, we must get serious for a moment and add that during our lifetime we do not recall a more exciting and stimulating election as this one. We are incredibly thrilled and honored to have had the opportunity to witness a historic political event and to be able to share our experiences with you all. We are interested to learn if your pets have also become politically involved! Leave a comment and share.
