Just too cute!

Like the GOP has had anything resembling substance for longer than I care to think, never mind a new idea?  The Repubs need to get a life ... and Hillary may need to invest in some Meow Mix!

Hear, hear!

On another note: "New Hillary Clinton Ad Features Just Kittens" (The Borowitz Report)

... Clinton herself appears only in the final seconds of the ad, saying merely, “Hi. I’m Hillary.”

The commercial immediately drew the wrath of the Republican National Committee chairman, Reince Priebus, who called it “woefully short on substance.” ...

Just a cat - how insulting that sounds! Someone walking over your feelings with big dirty boots.

I've always wanted my cats to live like cats, they shouldn't be dressed up or treated like humans, but they behave like family so they ARE family!

Kipps did nothave a quiet voice; when he had something to say, he made sure we all heard him. 

When we would take him to the vet, he would wait till we stopped at an intersection, and then holler, "RAPE!  FIRE!"  When we got back home, I'd let him out of his carrier, and he would run into another room hissing and cursing over his shoulder at me.

Kipps used to love to "talk" to anyone who would respond.  One night he came in the kitchen (his favorite place except for dad's recliner) yakking as though something had really annoyed him.  I said, "did you get his license number?"  "Noooooo.  Nawt this time, but it was some idiot kid."  You know you're supposed to stay in the house."  "I doan wannnnnaaaaah!"  And blah-blah.

I once asked him who used to live across the street from us, and ha said, "Howwwwelllll!"  That was amazing because the Howells moved away before Kipps was born.

He got out late one night when he was about 15, and would NOT come back in the house no matter what we did.  I found him in pieces all over the yard the next morning.  I was so devastated (having hysterics) that I called in sick at work.  (And got the usual, "But he was just a cat."  Damn them all.  I still resent that. He was a member of our family.)

Two of my cats - MauMau and Luna - showed that they knew what I wanted AND that they made their own choices.

Like this - sleeping in the wardrobe is not allowed in this house, but it is what Luna wants. So she gets into the wardrobe in a quarter of a second when I open the door.

"Luna, get out of there!"

"I can't hear you, I'm sleeping."

"Get out Luna!"

So she gets out very fast and runs rings around me, to show who's boss.

You never know with cats - are they smart because they understand what you want or are they smart because they make their own choices?

Patricia, Purr-Dee's photos reminded me a LOT of Kipps (the cat who listened to Mother); he was a grey & white tuxedo (Bugs Bunny) cat, too. His former owner had the hots for Tommy Steele, so she named him after the character he played in "Half a Sixpence."
