Thank you so much for all of yesterday’s birthday wishes… but what pleased me even more was how much everyone embraced Cat World Domination Day! As most of us know, we cats have dominated the world for a long time now (some would argue that with a break here and there, we have been in charge since ancient Egyptian times), but yesterday proved that we are owning this truth.
Want more proof? I present the following:
- Tardar Sauce, our very own Grumpy Cat, has signed a movie deal.
- Cats are running for public office in ever-increasing numbers. The latest is Morris, a black-and-white kitty who is running for mayor of the Mexican City of Xalapa. I am looking forward to 2014, a semi-big election year for the U.S. I expect to see several new feline members in the House of Representatives.
- Have you noticed that there is a TV show called My Cat From Hell and books with titles like Outsmarting Cats, but then you take a look at them and realize they are all about changing human behavior?
- Cat video festivals are spreading like crazy! So far this year Boston, Memphis and Austin have all had them. There were two in California. Minneapolis is having its second one in August. There is even a cat video awards show — the Friskies!
- Two words: Lil Bub
Got any more important cat news that shows our world domination?
