These cats have their hats, beads, sunglasses, and their awesome selves ready to roll as Mardi Gras festivities heat up, ready for the grand finale on Fat Tuesday.
Are your cats getting ready to pawty big time for the mega festivities in New Orleans. Even if they can’t be in N’aw Orleans, are they ready to rock and roll in at home. These kitties sure are.
They borrowed some of their human’s gear from a few years ago, and can’t wait to CELEBRATE – the last big hurrah before Lent.

Sunday Selfie: PolitiCATS
The PolitiCATS have thrown their paws into the Presidential Race, and as they sprint all paws ahead, Paws for Reflection wants to share their selfies. If you want to check out how the PolitiCATS are taking on the human Presidential contenders, check out yesterday’s post, PolitiCATS throw paws and claws into Presidential race.
This is far from the first time, we’ve seen cats enter the Presidential Race. Morris the Cat, America’s most famous cat of the time, put on quite a campaign in 1972. Though he didn’t win, he placed cats on the podium. Four years ago, cats took the political arena by storm, and Paws for Reflection wrote about the relatively famous contenders in Cats taking political arena by storm – from Stubbs the Mayor, Hank for Senate, to Keyboard Cat for President.
Do you have a cat you’d like to see sitting in the Oval Office. Leave your comments on this fun discussion, and let’s see if we can get some Cat Power and Meow Power into the race.
Cats have been part of the political scene for years, with Morris throwing his paws in back in the 60’s. Four years, ago cats go involved, as well, and Paws for Reflection wrote about that in Cats Take the Political Arena by Storm.

Step over Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. You’ve got some newfound cat competitors, the PolitiCATS. With teeth bared and claws out, they are throwing their paws into the ring, bringing Meow Power in ernst to the Presidential catfight that’s only beginning to heat up.
Cats take center stage over any debate
With the #Iowa Caucus set for Monday, Feb. 1, and the #New Hampshire Primary right behind, (Tuesday, Feb. 9) this round of catfights is bound to take center stage over any debate, making Trump’s comments against women seem angst, and test the Clinton’s honesty when it comes to cutting through the cat chase.
PolitiCATS going full tail-speed ahead
These PolitiCATS are going full tail-speed ahead, creating a flurry of flying fur, in this already crowded race. And they are putting on their most pleasing purr to raise the money needed for sustainability till the end when we get another first – the first Cat President of the United States of America.
Like Republican Presidential hopefuls Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, the RepubliCATS aren’t afraid to throw a hard paw and bare their teeth with a vicious growl. They walk straight up, tales in the air, and stare you straight in the eye. This is no cat walk for them. They’re in it, not to win one catfight, but to win them all, go the distance, and have a cat in the oval office.
If they back down on their stance, they’ll drop down in the pecking order, and that would make their cat life most unbearable, because they want to be the Top Esteemed Cat, not next in line, devastating their PolitiCAT ambitions.
These felines have reason to be hopeful. Cats have taken over the Internet. Could that newfound popularity catapult them to victory in November?
They are all paws up for cat equality, except when it comes to them. Each one believes they only must remain on top, no matter what. Even though they are PolitiCATS, they don’t all think alike, and there are many divides amongst them, so many that they have split into Cat Parties: the RepubliCATS, DemoCATS, IndepeCATS and Green CATS.
For a cats’ eye view of their platforms and how they plan to wiggle their way into the hearts of the American voters, Paws for Reflection had some real cat luck come our way, as we interviewed some of the new found cat contenders for the highest office in the land.
RepubliCATS favor more wealth, leading to more Fat Cats
The RepubliCATS’ pawsome platform favors:
- Cat security at home and abroad, with a strong national cat army made up of the ferals who struggle to maintain their existence each day. Why not bring them to the front lines and out of the alley?
- Equal healthcare, as long as your cat person has the money to fund it. Why give this luxury to those that can’t afford it?
- More wealth for the wealthy. Well, that translates to yummy food and more cat creature comforts for all the Fat Cats.
- Let the low-life continue to struggle to find their next meal, hunting for mice, diving into garbage cans, and begging on street corners. It doesn’t really impact us well-to-do cats much.
RepubliCAT hopeful Little Yellow, who is not so little anymore, comes from a business background. He is Chief Cat at Paws for Reflection, and he is all about maintaining status and getting ahead in the cat pecking order here at home and overseas. He says, ‘We must fight on and defend our borders no matter what the cost’.
‘Cat power rules when it comes to keeping us safe, and we’ll align ourselves with our MEOWing partners, worldwide, to make that happen.’
Sunday Selfie: I’s poses for a selfie. I’s a kitty in a basket.
I don’t really have much to say today, cause I’m too busy napping. We’re gearing up for more Meows and Purrs in the weeks to come.
