Posts Tagged ‘Voting’

Mom was late getting home from work today because she said she stopped to vote.

I smelled food on her.  Didn’t she know we were home starving?

We decided to let you know what we thought of the voting thing that humans do.

I take this voting thing seriously.  I wore my badge all night and was proud of it.

Not me.  I yanked that sticky thing off of me and stomped on it.  Don’t ask my why.  I just had the feeling that’s what I was supposed to do.

That’s the youngster showing up in Steinbeck.  He doesn’t understand the importance of voting.

As long as the gingers win, it’s fine with me.

How can the gingers win if you don’t even vote?  Besides, the tuxedos are winning.

You’re asking mighty difficult questions on my empty stomach.  I can’t think fast enough.

Well, all I can tell you is that if you were running the election, everyone would be eating instead of voting.

There’s something wrong with that?

I give up!  Mom, you try talking to him.

Mom kept telling us that this was Election Day and we should go vote.  Well, if it’s today, why did she vote last Saturday?  She just went off to work this morning and said, “Bye.  Be good and don’t forget to vote.”

Mr Mouse, this was my first election day and I was scared.  I thought I would vote for the wrong thing. They shouldn’t make us young kittens vote on important stuff.  I just pray I did the right thing!  I can tell you that I voted for free catnip for all the kittens and cats in our country.  I also voted for good homes for all the fur people so nobody is hungry or cold.  Then I voted for an extra treat tonight.  🙂

Mr. Mouse, I’ve been through this before but I had to help the little one.  He was scared to put any marks on the ballot.  I think he did pretty good so he shouldn’t worry.  I voted for a little free time for myself.  I also voted for daycare for kittens so we adult cats don’t have to kittensit them all the time while our humans work.  I also voted for extra treats!

Yes, Mr. Mouse.  We did our duty….

…..and so did Mom!

Here we sit.  Just waiting for the time we are old enough to vote.

I don’t know about you, but I’m sitting here just waiting for a treat.

Shakespeare, do you ever think of anything besides food?

That’s pretty much a NO!  Just ask Mom.

Well, I’m wondering why Mom keeps telling us we’re too young to vote.  Are we too young in kitty years or in human years?  There is a difference!  Besides, we’re rather smart and we know what’s going on.

What are you talking about?

I’ve seen signs in yards and I’ve heard lots and lots and lots and lots of ads on TV about these candidates.  Must admit I won’t miss those ads.  Maybe they’ll put more cat food ads on now.  Anyway, I’ve sort of formed some opinions so I think I should vote.

If we vote do we get a treat?

Well, if kitties were running the elections, we would for sure get treats but I doubt the humans even think of that.

Here comes Mom.  She just went to vote so let’s ask her why we can’t vote and if there are treats.

Boys……you’re too young to vote.  Besides, the voting booths are tall and you would never be able to reach.  

That’s discrimination!  They should have kitty-sized booths.

Would that be like a litter box?

Shakespeare, it is impossible to have a sane conversation with you!  I don’t think you should be allowed to vote.  Maybe I should run for office.  I could promise a mouse in every pot and catnip on every table!

The humans are voting today.

So?  What does that mean to us?  I don’t know what voting is.

Voting is when they choose leaders for the country, the state they live in and even the city they live in.

I wonder if anyone will vote for me.

You aren’t running for anything.

I’ll run for food!

No, I mean you have to get your name on this thing they call a ballot.  Then you have to put up signs and appear on TV and radio and talk about what you would do to make things better for everyone.

Well, if I was on that ballot thing, I would promise all the fur people that they would get new food bowls filled with their favorite things and another bowl filled with fresh water.

That’s a good start.

Then I would promise the kitty fur people that they would have nice big fluffy pillows in front of warm fireplaces so they can nap as much as they want.  They would also have an endless supply of catnip.

What about the fur doggies?

They would get bones to chew on, fenced yards so they could run around lots, shiny new collars and rides in cars and long walks with their humans.

What special things would you do for all the other fur critters?  Remember that we have some good friends who are piggies.

Oh yes, they can let me know what they want and I’ll see that they get it.  I know all of them will want new toys and lots of attention.

Where is all the money coming from to take care of all these things?

From the humans of course!  Silly Hemingway…..I don’t have any money!!
