As you can see, I am very peeved off! Why? I had to go on some news shows to talk to the media and they asked really stupid, accusatory questions! Fortunately, I was prepped ahead of time, but still, it is the most annoying part of campaigning for Cat Ruler of the World! But I am doing this because I want to see Tabby’s Place and its very special special-needs kitties get the grand prize!
On the first show, the guy predictably played the species card:
Chris, did I ever say anything about dogs that was not a fact? I pointed out that dogs were easily trained to do a human’s bidding. I never said dogs have no value, just that this is not the mark of a world leader. Leaders are able to strategize, think outside the box (without actually going outside the litter box), and think for themselves. These are all feline qualities. I believe in all creatures coming from their strengths. When they go against their natural inclination, it only creates a mediocre result. As Cat Ruler of the World, I am sure I will find a use for dogs, but it will be something they can be trained to do.
And then this guy accused me of using mandatory naps to turn the world into a nanny state:
Bill, you and I both know that mandatory nap times should not be necessary, and it is something that humans ought to do naturally. But you guys are an odd group of beings. If you think something is “bad” or “naughty,” you have to be given permission to do it, otherwise you shy away from it, or do it but feel guilty about it. There is nothing wrong with napping at all — in fact it is good for you, but a misinformed work ethic has cast a dark shadow over it. Mandatory nap times merely allow humans to do what they already know in their hearts is right (we kitties, fortunately, do not need anyone’s permission to do anything). And before you start talking in your Loud Voice again and interrupting me, I’d like to note that you’re in your 60s, right? Don’t you think you could use a little more nap time at your age?
Remember: a vote for me is a vote for Tabby’s Place!
I am Sparkle and I approve this message.
