So many of you have been asking me why I haven’t made a bid for the presidential election. Given that cats can’t vote, my heart just wasn’t in the running.
Then there came the Cats Rule the World Contest and of course I was asked so I hope you’ll go vote for me and you can only vote once for one cat. Each cat is hoping to rule the world to win money and useful gifts for their favorite shelter. I hope that everything goes to Purrfect Pals, so when you vote, you are not just voting for me, but for them!
Who better than me to rule the world? I have the experience with politics and can give short pithy answers or nuanced versions. I understand how to put my paw down when I want my way. I’m not afraid to get my paws a little dirty. Further, my closet skeletons are very well buried. No one remembers the pooting incident. My ties to the Catstra Nostra and the rumors that I’m the Cat Mother of the organization are old news. Who wants to hear it again? I’ve made no income so I have no tax returns to show.
As ruler of the world, of course, it makes no difference where I was born, either in the US or Siam.
I am running against some other potential talent, but I’m not sure any of them have the experience in dirty campaign politics, many of them being far too nice. As for the others, are they really ready for that 2 PM wake up call?

Congrats on the nomination! Our Odin looks forward to competing with you 🙂
My eyeballs exploded reading the voting information post and it took me a while tofigure out I can’t even vote yet. But I will! I promise!
I really don’t understand why anyone cares about the presidential campaign – THIS one is way more important! Plus we are all cuter.

Fur Everywhere says
We found your blog from the voting post rules and catidate introductions! 🙂
My little Milita is a lynx-point Siamese mix, so I’m sure she’ll bug me to vote for you. 😉 We know Siamese are very demanding (in a good way) and know how to get what they want! We look forward to learning more about you and the shelter you’re campaigning for.

Callie (a.k.a. Trouble) says
But I thought that you ALREADY ruled the world?
CCL Wendy says
You go, Chey! You have to be ruthless (not toothless) if you want to rule the world. And you’re certainly that in spades (which are also good for a little digging, if you can dig it)!

Oh My Cod!!! My girl goes away for a few days, swipes my laptop, and just look at all that’s happened!!! I thought I already ruled the world, now I’m in a race to rule it, Chey’s got a whole new look! Whoa!!! We love your new DO, Chey!
The campaign will be FUN! I promise to keep my claws contained. And sharp.
