President Obama Needs A Cat!

We saw this picture and were shocked.  SHOCKED we tell you, SHOCKED!  There is a rat below the podium!  IN PLAIN SIGHT!

This cant be allowed ta continue...  So we propose a White House cat best able to deal with rodents.

The new White House Cat (afterwards known as "First Cat") should be:

1.  Good at catching rodents.
2.  Reflect President Obama's heritage (Black and White).
3.  Reflect an American heritage itself.
4.  Be both reserved and agressive according to situations.
5.  Be respectful of the White House carpets and drapes and other historical cloths.
6.  Look good siting on red/white/blue clothes (photo ops ARE important).
7.  Reflect The First Lady's interest in outdoor activities.
8.  Be a darling around The First Kids.

To that end. we suggest that the new First Cat be like this:

What do you think? 

American Shorthair, Black/White, sturdy and solid, great catcher of mousies.  Laid back.  Civil. Non-political.  Generally friendly without being fawning.  A real Moderate.  Non-aristocratic.

We agree. There should always be at least one cat in the White House! Plus, stroking a cat is shown to lower stress levels so Mr. Obama could benefit that way as well.
Cats are great ambassadors and we think LC would have made a terrific one!

I have tried to audition for the part but he won't let me...


(And while I am political, imagine the good advice I could give...)

Millie said...

I absolutely agree!

LC would have been a fantastic First Cat! Of course, she was a First Cat at your house and in your hearts.

Another thing about B & W cats...If the First Cat was a Tuxie, they would ALWAYS be formally attired...a bonus we're sure.

We thinks that would be the purrfect First Cat. And yes THERE SHOULD ALWAYS BE A CAT IN THE WHITEHOUSE.

LC would have made an amazing First Cat!

Bennette is thinking she wants to apply for the job...has her tuxedo on all the time and would give all mousies a run for their mousie money.

There might be all kind of rodents in that town...hehehe!

We totally agree! And, say, where's that useless woofy when you need a rat taken care of anyway?

umi_e said...

YES! we agree with you :D

Great idea!

Derby, Ducky said...

Excellent choice! There must be so many tuxie's in shelters that could step right in and take over. Rid the White House of vermin.

That rat is shocking! Definitely the acquisition of a cat is in order. Or maybe two. Gotta keep that dog in its place too.
