Well the election is over and I discovered who cast the ballot for Chey and me. It was Miss Tuxie! She must have slipped out at some point and voted early. She is also waiting to see if Mike ever makes up his mind about a girl friend. It has been so quiet in the house these past few days. No phone calls, very little mail. Just very peaceful, mum and me just snuggling, napping and stuff. Mum stayed up late election night to watch the returns and the final speeches. But she gets mad at the local picture box people who want to show the local stuff when mum wants to see the BIG picture. But happy it is over, she backed the winner and is ready to go for the next four years.
The other thing that has struck mum as we have made it around the Cat Blogosphere, I know our beans come from all walks of life, different levels of income, races, gender etc. But overall it seems we all wanted Mr O to win. That is amazing that so many groups of people came together to support him in his victory.
Mum has moved the campaign button down, but we won't totally delete it. I am proud to have been a part of this election. Chey and I may not have made a dent in the Mericky political scene, but we tried to bring our focus on the issues forward.
Mum is off to visit my shelter tomorrow. It is their annual sale of goodies, so it will be interesting to see what she brings home. Miss Tuxie came from the shelter sale. Also, the shelter now has enough money to start their expansion. Woohoo, lots more room for kitties and other creatures to come.
Plus mum did her part and bought a tribute brick for me. It gives my name and the date I was adopted. When they build the new part these bricks will be outside to show our support.
