Tortie Tuesday

It's Tortie Tuesday! It's also Election Day which is very impawtant because it gives us a say in who is making the decisions which affect us. Here in Oregon all voting is done by mailing in our ballots or putting them in specially marked drop boxes around town. My theory of why we do this rather than having polling places is so cats can help in the voting process!
Don't tell Sadie because I think she believes dogs should be able to vote too but cats know they can be just a little too immature...
Did you see that? She stuck her tongue out at me!
What's so funny Sadie?
I think she's proving my point that dogs don't take voting seriously...
This voting process is so not easy around here...
Be sure to do your part in the demoCATic process and vote today!

Happy Tortie Tuesday!

I am definitely going to participate in the demoCATic process today - while the humans go out and vote (they choose to visit their polling place here in California), we cats will play demo-derby with their stuff!

Isabella,

You are such a character, you and Sadie crack me up!!!

We chose to vote by mail too. It's so convenient and less hassle.

We don't have elections today but we can see how important they are! You look exhausted!

We think that dogs should be able to vote, but only if they have a cat adviser to keep them mature!

Isabella, you are the purrfect spokescat for voting. This is the best "commercial" for voting that we have seen and we have seen way too many!!!!!!! Plus, you are just beautiful!!! Oh, the woofie is a cutie!!!

VOTE!

Erika said...

Voted last week in early voting--had hoped it would suddenly end all of the negative campaigning but no such luck. And I agree with Isabella--it is hard work!

Catherine said...

Haha! You are quite a pair! What funny faces you can make, Sadie, but you know your sisfur is right - voting is furry important business! Great job Isabella :)

Isabella, great message for all to get out and vote. The humans here have voted. We do want you to know that dogs are not immature, especially Sadie - she is just getting relaxed and at ease so her voting will be totally nonstressed:)

Pretty cool how you kitties can help in the voting process in Oregon! Love the pic of Sadie laughing, too cute. Happy Tortie Tuesday!

Pricilla said...

Very good points. Goats can't vote either, If I could I would vote for apples.

Grace said...

Oh that was all so funny!

Daisy said...

You are lucky where you live that you do not have to stand in lines. My Mommeh voted earlier today. Voting is important!

I went along with Mom and watched The Xterra whilst she went in and did her stuff!

PeeEssWoo: Hi Sadie - khats! What do they know!?!

Ann said...

lol, the demoCatic process, that cracked me up. Oh, I'm sorry Isabella, we are being serious here today aren't we :)

Marg said...

Isabella, have we told you lately that you are so cute. We love how you are helping with the voting process. Voting is very important. Sadie was a big help too except for sticking her tongue out at you but she didn't mean it. She just wanted to be a part of it all. Take care and glad you are voting Isabella.

TiLT said...

Done! But I didn't get such great furry help :P

Reeni said...

Seeing Sadie roll around like that is funny! I thought only us cats did that! You're such a good helper Isabella! Love, Moon

Splendid Little Stars said...

Isabella, I think in that last photo you are trying to fool Sadie into thinking either that you're settling down for a nap or just trying to be cute. But we know you are trying to paw-tect that secret ballot. Good work!

The Island Cats said...

Haha! Isabella, us cats all know that woofies are silly and we could never trust them to vote!!

Au and Target said...

Haha! This is EXCELLENT!

We'd love to vote but we'd have to change citizenship ;-)

Kathleen said...

Missie voted! Now where did she put that sticker... we likes stickers...

Simba said...

It is going to be an uphill battle to get a dog in line for voting - Sadie is a classic case!

My folks voted!

tahtimbo said...

Too funny!! I love it! Thanks for the smile. Oh, I voted and NO MORE political ads!!!!! :)

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

Our Teri said she liked the way they do voting in Oregon...and was Sadie ROTFL?? Maybe you should tell her Hiss Off!
