Aww, that's so cute! I've also seen Obama doggies at rallies. There was a seeing eye dog with a 'Follow Me to Change' sign. :) Wish I had snapped a picture for y'all.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 06:27 AM

Obama is the #1 choice of kitties!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 06:29 AM

My orange baby joined the Ron Paul revolution.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 06:37 AM

I am a supporter of Hillary. I like her, she is smart and tough and gentle all at the same time. Kittens, prairie dogs, and all of the other critters will most probably have Mr. Obama as their next President, but I hope that Hillary goes into a position where her ideas can flourish and her creativity is used for the public good. You've run a good race, my dear, and you have my admiration forever. *sigh*

The question is...which candidates have pets, and what are they? Cats, dogs or what? Of course, Hillary used to have the famous Socks, but I'm not sure if he's still with us. The heck with the rest of the election issues, the real question is...will there kittehs in the White House?

I run the Brooklyn office of Cats for Clinton, because they can appreciate an intelligent woman, and smell the opponent's b.s. a mile away.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 06:49 AM

So you're saying that the senator from Chicago has a lock on the Mid-American critters?

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 06:54 AM

lol the kitteh fits into a dog shirt.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 06:56 AM

chats for change

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 07:03 AM

Pawrack Obmeowa!

Fired up! Ready to go!

The McCains used to have a couple of snakes. They have lots of other pets.

Last I read, the Obamas don't have pets but the daughters want a dog.

I suppose cats would tend to prefer Obama over Clinton because the Clintons gave Socks away. I think Socks is still alive, though.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 07:28 AM

Cuuute!!! Are marmies going to be the swing vote? Will we see the candidates courting the marmie (and kitty) count in the upcoming months? That would certainly make those televised debates so much more interesting to watch. "Live from the PetSmart adoption center and hosted by Chris Matthews.."

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 07:31 AM

Socks is still around, yes. He went to live with Bill's secretary who he had taken a liking to in the white house.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 07:32 AM

Uh, my marmalade-colored cat is way too smart to endorse an empty suit internationalist non-American cipher like Obama.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 07:40 AM

Yaay! The kitteh is all "Yes we can! Si se puede!"
I never realized kittehs were so politically astute!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 07:43 AM

Seven Paws, along the same lines, some candidates (Romney) maybe shouldn't have pets ...

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 07:43 AM

Socks (born c. March 1991) was the pet cat of Bill Clinton and the Clinton family. After the Clintons left the White House, Socks was given to Clinton's secretary, Betty Currie..........In October 2004 Socks made a now-rare public appearance when Currie was guest speaker at an Officers' Spouses Club luncheon at Andrews Air Force Base. Socks accompanied her and took part in a photo op. In mid-2006 Socks was in good health and still living with Currie and her husband in Hollywood, Maryland, about 80 miles from Washington.[3]

Socks the cat update for those who care. :D

Just another perk of being unemployed - I'm free to look up trivial cat information!

If I had a kitteh, she would be dressed up in an itty bitty Ron Paul shirt.

Vive le revolution!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 07:58 AM

Awwww I wish we got cool kitteh guest speakers at MY Officers' Spouses' Club meetings!

Very cute picture - now, if it were, say, a kitteh in a McCain '08 shirt... NOW we'd be talkin'!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:00 AM

looks so soft and snuggable wuvwuvwuv

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:00 AM

It's a con, Cats can't read, why else do they lie on my newspaper when I am trying to read.

Hon Glad
 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:02 AM

Hon Glad: They lay on your paper to absorb all of the informations with their tummies. Duhh!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:11 AM

Hon Glad, they soak up the news through their fur!

Hoooray! My kitteh's for Obama, too, even though she's not a marmalade.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:11 AM

Brooklyn Cats for Obama here. My calico endorses Obama; mabye it's the multiracial thing.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:16 AM

My cat would throw herself in front of a bus before endorsing that empty-headed windbag. No, thank you!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:17 AM

...and EVERYBODY knows that marmies know what they're talking about :)

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:27 AM

sorries, but Solomon is still undecided and he's been chatting with Miss Huggums whose all "hilary, hilary"

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:34 AM

Sabrina/Zeldapie, thanks for the info.I now realise my cats are very well read.

Hon Glad
 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:38 AM

Um, why is there a mailorder bride ad on the side of CuteOverload? Creepy.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:44 AM

My cats are definitely Libertarians. They want full control over their own food, and the opportunity to work for their own biscuits. Ron Paul '08 baby. =-D

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:45 AM

I know all peeps are welcome to their own political opinions, but all the talk about Obama being empty headed and un-American is just a bit too much. Empty headed he is not. Before his run for IL legislature, he was a constitutional scholar at U of Chicago Law school. Unlike our current leader, he is a very knowledgable and brilliant man. I wouldn't call any of our leading candidates empty headed or un-American. Even if I disagree with McCain or Hillary's platforms, they do deserve respect.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:46 AM

my maine coon endorses obama. we don't like ladies who get their panties in a bunch and make false silly accusations at debates..only to be pwned a second later. happy voting and kitty owning everyone. btw how in the world do people get shirts on cats? i cant imagine mine sitting still

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:46 AM

That mailorder bride ad is def inappropriate the more I think about it. Ew.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:47 AM

Wow. "we don't like ladies who get their panties in a bunch and make false silly accusations at debates" Misogynist much? I'm not sure what gender has to do with that.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:52 AM

Thanks so much for the Socks update! I'm glad to hear he's alive and well.

Seven Paws
 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:55 AM

Since no one mentioned it, didn't the Clintons also have a dog named Buddy that I remember them adopting during the presidency? I wonder if he was given to someone else too.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:58 AM

Hillary Clinton is in fact, a lady, whiskas. Not misogynist at all to say that a female is in fact a female.

On topic, my orange kitteh fully endorses Barack Obama and he is excited for tonights debate!!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 09:05 AM

We covered the Clinton pets previously, but sadly Buddy was hit by a car when he ran past security at the home. Thanks much, Carrie, for Socks' update. I still have his souvenir postcard on the fridge. I used to tell my kitty "That's your president! President of the Cat United States of America!" He seemed pleased.

There is one youngin here for Obama, but since he's only 4 months old, the others will forgive that. ;)

Respect for all! Florida Brown and Gray Tabbys for Hil!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 09:08 AM

I must get one for MY orangey. Even though he's a Canadian orangey.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 09:16 AM

I thought Hillary wore boxers.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 09:22 AM

How did I know this post would prompt negativity from non-Obama supporters?

There are two things I am increasingly nervous about: 1) Obama becoming president (which I want to happen, I'm nervous about the whole process because I think it's very important) and 2) waiting to hear about a very important job that would require me to move a long ways away.

The other day, I told Bertha that if we move, we were probably going to adopt a marmie kitteh.

So, this pretty much seals it. When I get the job and Obama becomes president, we get a new marmie. Thanks for helping clarify everything, Meg!

P.S. It is possible to be opposed to someone politically or prefer another candidate and express that difference without hate, bile and rancor. I could make a million nasty jokes about Clinton (or Nader or McCain or Huckabee or Ron Paul), but you know what? I have no real desire to. I respect all of them, and I respect their supporters. What I DON'T respect is people who think that name-calling and fear-mongering and self-victimizing is a way to frame intelligent political discourse. Make your point, talk to your friends, keep an open mind, and VOTE when the time comes. But please, please, please, there is absolutely no benefit in expressing how much you can hate or denigrate others. Certainly you're "allowed" to -- that's what free speech is. But it doesn't speak well for you or your candidate, particularly when you do so from the relative anonymity of a largely non-political internet bulletin board.

Thank you. I am Berthaslave, and I approve this message (and so does Bertha, who incidentally is a proud medium hair domestic who thinks that Obama's work in increasing transparency in government is a significant accomplishment that continues to have major positive ramifications on the way we rule ourselves).

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 09:30 AM

P.S. For those of you interested in joining the cause:


 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 09:31 AM

*stands & applauds Candace* Very well said. Let's show some respect to all the candidates, no matter who everyone votes for.

On Topic - I'm LOVIN' the kitteh in the shirt, but, em.....how is it that it isn't splattered in human blood? I tried to put my Tika (striped Tabby RIP 9/1999) in a sweater once and she nearly eviscerated me LMAO!!!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 09:34 AM

...*stands and applauds Berthaslave*


 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 09:36 AM

Politics on CO?

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 09:37 AM

Birds for Nader? Why not? Nader is for the birds! ;-)

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 09:37 AM

Marmies are teh bestest.

RIP Trevor (1977-1993), 22 pound blob of snorgalicious lap cat.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 09:50 AM

Cats think "change" means fresh kitty litter! Oh they love that! Someone should tell the cats, before they get their hopes up for a clean litter box.
