I am aware that some folks may not think that writing about politics on a blog devoted to cats may not be appropriate. Even so, because Aki and Edgar Allen Poe are extremely worried about this mid-term election, they pleaded with me to share their feelings, therefore I was compelled to honor their request.
Aki and Poe are very worried that the folks who didn’t vote early or hadn’t voted with a mail-in ballot may just decide not show up at the polls. What they are most concerned about are the humans who have become totally disgusted with all the nasty bickering, the hatred, and the outrageous lies, making them believe that their vote won’t make a difference; so why bother voting in the first place! Aki and Edgar Allen Poe are simply doing their civic duty by reminding those skeptics that EVERY VOTE COUNTS.
It made me very sad when I overheard Aki and Poe saying that they wished they could vote,; especially since they are old enough to vote based on human years. Additionally, because they are highly intelligent and fully cognizant of all the critical issues this Country is facing the feel they should be eligible. They have also been sufficiently educated by all the factual information they get while hanging out with my husband and me while watching our favorite news programs on CNN and MSNBC. Sadly, cats are not permitted to vote. But WE can and WE must.
Aki especially made this little sign to inspire you all, because they both feel strongly that tomorrow’s vote is the most important one you will ever make. To do their part in getting the word out, they implored me to share their concerns and above all, to remind everyone to get out and vote. They urge you to cast a ballot that is aimed to help bring our Country together. You can make that happen . . . but only IF you vote.
