Make play, not war

Let's get one thing straight -- when Mimi swats me on the head, I swat her right back. And when she whacks Farfel, he whacks her right back. Just because she's a girl, she doesn't get special treatment. She can dish it out, and she can take it.

That's the way it is with cats. A smack in the face equals a smack in the face back.

But we only let the fur fly for so long. It's infinitely more enjoyable to play. Or sleep, or eat, or clean behind our ears. Farfel especially likes to clean Mimi's ears, even if she's been beating up on him.

Because as Abraham Lincoln observed, "no matter how much cats fight, there always seem to be plenty of kittens."

Big 3

I prefer my version of the Big Three....

United we sleep

What's all this fuss about unity? This has never been an issue with my colleagues. Not only do we stand united on most fronts -- the bed, the couch, the linen cupboard -- we sleep united as well.

In fact, we agree on the most important subjects -- canned cat food twice a day, cat candy in the morning, catnip at night, and everyone gets a turn on the heating vent.

And there's enough room in the cat bed for all of us.

Coronations? Those are for cat shows. It's more fun to party together, eat together, and sleep together.

And warmer, too...

Support DemoCat Anschel

Would Stephen Harper climb a tree for you? I would. Does Stephane Dion wash between his toes? I do, at least once a day.

These are the qualities you should look for in a leader. The willingness to serve in many ways. And keep it clean.
I’ve held national office as Best Foreign Burmese in Canada, 2007 to 2008. I know what it’s like to serve (and entertain) the public.

I call myself a DemoCat because power belongs to the people. Not just because people know how to open a can of tuna, but because they’re also good to sleep with.

I mean, can you imagine Jack Layton catching a mousie? You deserve a leader who can keep pests under control.

And that would be me, Anschel. Your local neighbourhood DemoCat.
