Happy Presidents Day from COTUS


Hi Everyone, COTUS here.

That's *Cat Of The United States* in case you're a little slow with the acronyms.  Today we're celebrating Presidents Day here in the US. It's the day we honor past POTUS's.  It's supposed to be George Washington's birthday too, but he was born on February 22 so go figure.

According to Glogirly, there's no mail, you can't go to the bank, and some of the lucky dogs that work for the government actually get the day off. There's big sales on cars, sofas and mattresses too.

Doesn't sound like much of a holiday to me.

So how would things be different if COTUS were in charge instead of POTUS?


The oval office would be PINK.


Money would get an extreme makeover.


$100 would be worth a LOT more.


We would ALL have loving and safe forever homes.


And we'd be kind to each other. Even the small orange boys.

  4. Happy Purresident's Day to you. Our mom is one of the lucky ones that has the day off.

  5. Yeah, I'd vote for Katie. But we're Canadian. Up here, it's "family day" in some provinces (those are like your states). We in British Columbia (that's a province), had our family day last Monday. Not all of our provinces have the same statutory holidays or necessarily have them all on the same day, even if we call them the same thing. We think that Katie would make a great COTUS and Waffles could be a good Secretary of State. We'd better let Glogirly be VP because we think that the USA could use a better set of brains.

  11. Oh golly gosh!! I thought that said something else for a minute!! *adjusts varifocals* Wondering what you and the orange boy were ... errr ... doing, Katie!

    Being in touch with my pink side and of course it goes so awfully well with my tuxie handsomeness, I concur with your colour scheme wholeheartedly :) The ornge boy does clash a tad, though!! ;)

  16. I'm surprised Waffles Too wasn't on a Penny. All other currency should have Katie's picture on it!

    1. Excellent point. The only reason he's on the quarter is because I couldn't find a good image of a penny to work with. It's ok though. I'm on the $100 bill. It's all good.
      heh, heh.

  18. Well, it's official: KATIE FOR PRESIDENT! We like your way bunches more!

    ReplyDelete
  19. LOL, I almost fell off my chair laughing. Yes, I can definitely see you going into politics. Love the kitty money!

  20. now that is what I say would be a purrfect world!

  21. too cute!! don't forget Presidents' Day is for Abe Lincoln too! His REAL birthday was February 12 :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Now there's something to celebrate! Even if the government has to change famous peoples' birthdays to accommodate a calendar of federal holidays, we think they could at least do these small things.

    ReplyDelete
  23. You have my vote, Katie. Would our head of household, the cat, be allowed to vote if you were running things? What would the age limit be? I don't think kittens should be given the vote right away. Who knows what they'd put on the ballot!

    1. Agreed, Miss Dorothy. Kittens can't be trusted. At least that's MY experience.

  26. Katie for President! Waffles Too for Secretary of Interior! You can just keep him in the national parks :)

  27. OK, It's a movement- Katie for President. Waffles for Secretary of the Interiors. Spitty for Homeland Security. Brian for Health and Kitty Services....
    Humans have been messing things up long enough. Give Cats a chance.

  30. Katie, I think you just made a case for an emergency election with only cats in the running! And you the frontrunner of course!

  31. We would vote for you for sure!!

  32. Happy Presidents Day Katie and Glogirly!

    We are adding a new addition to our family- a kitten! It's exciting and I will probably need a lot of advice from fellow cat owners like yourself!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love this. As an amateur historian, I'd like it if people, like you, thought of this day in historic terms and not as just a day off with great sales. Happy President's Day, friends!

    ReplyDelete
  34. In't the Cat Ruler ABOVE the POTUS? I always thought so. I think I should be Veep. W2 is beginning to look a lot like W1. Hope you didn't forget ole Abe Lincoln. Corporations didn't like giving their employees off 2 days so they combined the 2. It's always about screwing the working class. Hope you can do something about that.

  35. you have our vote :)

  38. Allie: Extreme Oval Makeover ... in PINK!
    *gush*

    LOOOVE!!

    Maxwell: uhm *clears throat* I agree with you Miss Katie, that if there were a COTUS we'd all have forever homes. That's something I can put my paw behind for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  39. We think Cotus would be lots better. Maybe the UK could follow suit and we would have His/Her Majesty The Cat.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh, we think we would like COTUS better than any POTUS! :)

  42. Darling Katie! This is a most exciting post. Seeing you behind that desk in the Oval Office--well, it was INSPIRATIONAL! I say you lose the little orange brat and install me on that couch and we're in business. I think being First Gentleman would suit me. Plus, I'd still have time for my Pope duties.

    ReplyDelete
  43. We want all those changes! the Oval office would look so good in pink! And green papers and coins featuring some of our most famous cats??? that would rock!!! We especially like all of us having homes and being nice to each other. ;)
