Guest Post

MaggieScoutHi everyone! We are lucky to have a guest post today from Cat Scout Maggie.

Howdy everyone!  Like most peeps and kitties we know, you are probably getting into the political swing!  Convention last week; another one this week.  There are so many impawtant things for our peeps to think about when choosing a favorite candidate, but I’d like to urge all of you to persuade your humans to check out the humane/animal awareness records of their state and local candidates.

Many federal laws that protect animals and advance animal rights start at the local and state level.  Tell your peeps to check out the voting and legislative records of their candidates.  Did they vote or advocate FOR or AGAINST us and our fellow furry friends?

Voting for animal-friendly candidates will help advance the cause of animal protection and animal rights in your area, and can spread to other areas.  Some states are even considering awarding “personhood” status to animals so that in instances of custody, control or prosecution, animals that have been victimized or abused will have the same rights as humans.  Let’s meow to our peeps to get informed and involved!!  Grumpyvote

Thank mew all!  Please stay cool and well hydrated, especially as the election season heats up!!



  1. The way one treats an animal says a lot about his or her character. Thank you for the reminder to pay attention to the less-than-hot-button issues most people get wrapped up in.

  2. Thank you dear furriend. That is an excellent idea. I will ask for a good way to check their records. Is there a quicker way than googling each one?

  3. Hi Maggie! Thanks for reminding us to check out candidates’ feelings about animal rights……….we are – after all – just as important as anybody/thing else!!!!

    Hugs, Sammy

    1. Ha Ha, I think the Parliamentary System is so much shorter, clearer and easier than our nutty years-long slog!

  4. Great point. I think it’s important to know how any candidate would treat another living creature, especially our furry friends! Their rights are important too!

  5. Great post Maggie! Politicians should be spayed or neutered, that would calm them down a bit and they might actually solve some problems!

    1. Brian, You’ve got that so right, dear buddy!! Sounds like a good “yard sign!”

  6. That is a great post and it is so true, that people that love pets are much better people on the whole. Good idea.
