A:  Yes Nelllie I can be impartial in disputes between cats and dogs...'cause my typist aka Mom 
is the one with thumbs and she loves doggies just as much as kitties and is very good at seeing both sides of a dispute.

What is your pawsition on Mommies who are slackers at blogging? We see lots of our furriends complain of this. It seems to be epidemic purrportions! - Yours very truly, Prancer Pie. XOXO

A:  Prancer, as needed, wet noodles will be distributed for all K9's and Felines to whip the 2 leggers into shape!! And of course there is always the annual performance review we can do on our peeps. We can tell the world they are slackers!!

Can we have the humans sleeping on the floor thing as OPTIONAL at the doggy or kitty's request? 
Casey

A:  Casey most definitely sleeping arrangements are up to the individual.  I don't plan to be a micro managing Mayor. MOL

Will you be following in Fwankie's pawprints and get your own little kitty da way Fwankie got Ernie??
Amber
A: Amber the answer to your question is a big fat NO!!  There is not enough room in this house for more than one Diva at a time.  Plus, as much as I hate to admit this...I really enjoy being an only cat with two human slaves.  I am Madi and that is how I roll.

Mayoral Candidate Madi: Answers to questions

Mom and I thoroughly enjoyed reading your questions yesterday and answering them as truthful and honestly as we could



I rested my eyes and put on my virtual thinking hat so that I could give you the very best answers to your questions.  

Q:OK OK here's one, chicken or beef?
Blessings,
Goose
 A:  Very Tasty Question Goose: chicken, beef, bacon, salmon, tuna, turkey. However now that I think about it...I've never met a slab of meat I didn't like. MOL

Q: What is you stance on vermin particularly squirrels? Are you for them or against them? 
Best wishes Molly


A:  MOL!! Molly around my parts we believe in live and let live with squirrels; however, I have once exception....DO not come on my porch in plain view shaking its bushy tail in my face.  That is like waving a red flag at a bull
  Q Mmm we are just curious How many cat bloggers. We only know a few. I think you as a MAYOR of Blogville will help us doggie bloggers to connect with cat bloggers. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar


A:  Sugar what a sweet question and statement!!  Well our very first blogging friends were dogs than lo and behold I found just as many Cat BFFFs!  There are at least a cat blog for every dog blog.  My mission statement as Mayor is to unite all animals of all species together in one happy cyber city!  You have given me an idea...maybe we'll have a meet and greet day every so often.

  Q:  We have a question Madi... How many times a day should we have scritches? Can we possibly overdo scritching? :)xx Princess Jasmine


A:  Jasmine a scritches each and every time Mom passes me are a requirement.  Sometimes she as she passes she says Hello Kitty and gives me the bestest scritch between my ears.  She says it feels like velvet there.  ABSOLUTELY NO POSSIBLE TO OVER DO SCRITHES EITHER!!

 Q:  Miss Madi, we have heard a nasty rumor that there may be a nip shortage this coming year. What would you, as mayor, do to advert such a shortage? 

Purrs,
Cindi Lou & The Kitty Krew


A:  Miss Cindi Lou don't worry your purrty little head about that nasty rumor.  The very first day as Mayor, I, Finn, my Commissioner of Parks will building  a nip station on the corner of each street in Blogville. Nip will flow freely 24/7.


Q:  Will you be tossing any treats or toys from your debate podium? If so, I will be there!
Lovies, Miss Mindy


A:  Miss Mindy first of all yes there will be pressies and treats for all.  I'm a firm believer in proper diet and exercise so for every treat you eat you must do at least one lap around my podium!!


Q: As Mayor, what will you do to foster improved canine/feline relations in Blogville? f
Casey

A:  Casey this is a good question.  One of the best ways to foster good will between K9s and Felines is by education and social interaction.  This past summer the Cat Blogosphere and Blogville (K9) joined forces for one of the best Olympic Events ever.  OMDs we had felines and K9s interacting in each others events and OMCs what a find opening and closing ceremony 
with everyone pawticipating.

Q:  Under your mayorship, may we expect more treats in Blogville?
Finn

A:  YES, and all treats will be free of calories for those of us
who have recently been accused of being Phat!

 Q:  As mayor, what will you expect from the MadSnapper as Official Photographer? do i have duties? or do i just wing it. well that is 3 questions but since you appear to spend a lot of time in sun puddles you should be able to answer all there.

A:  Yes Mad Snapper there are 3 questions but that is ok as Mayor I will always be at your beckon call to answer any and all questions.  Now for yours 
1.  Mad Snapper will be expected to be a snapping fool 
2. Her duties will include vary from day to day and change from minute to minute
3.  Most times she will be flying by the seat of her pantaloons unless there is an official
Mayoral appearance.

Q:  As mayor - will you require all humans to start sleeping on the floor so their animals can have the entire bed to themselves? 
BLUEBERRY 


A:   OMDs Blueberry I think having the humans sleep on the hard, cold floor is a grand idea.  I will set it into motion as soon as I become mayor.  ALL HUMANS HAVE TO SLEEP ON THE HARD, COLD FLOOR W/O COVER ON FRIDAYS AND SATURDAYS. AND THE K9s and felines get the soft comfy warm bed.

Q:  Will you work to find ways to preserve and enhance the character of the Blogland, and insist that any redevelopment projects reflect our values by incorporating building principles and fulfilling our affordable housing obligations.  Redevelopment should fit within the context of the surrounding neighborhoods. Would you encourage Advisory Planning Districts to participate in the planning process so that local neighborhood voices will help us make better decisions? And one more questions....with you as Mayor will you make certain we have more treats at the Town Hall meetings?

Remington



A: YES
 OH MY DOGS REMINGTON YOU ARE A MAN WITH A PLAN AND HAVE CLEARLY BEEN INVOLVED IN 
CITY PLANNING AND HUMAN RELATIONS.  YOUR QUESTIONS ARE FOOD FOR THOUGHT  AND WE WILL EAT THEM UP AND DIGEST THEM INTO OUR PLATFORM.
Each Town Hall meeting will be catered by your most gorgeous lady love Sasha..she is our official Chef and Jazzi is Commissioner of Tacos.



Q: What is your official position on spaying and neutering aka whoowhoo-ectomies and bobble-ectomies? 
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

A:  Sarge my official position is that no K9 or Feline should never spray and all should be neutralized!!


Q: We just want to know if you are going to be an honest mayor. Surely you wouldn't try to fool us with any promises, right??vWhat do you promise for a better blogosphere??
Marg's Pets


A:  Mom says I am as honest  loud as the day is long.  She always knows exactly how I feel about any particular situation.  I promise that don't hold back anything you will always know how I feel about things and as you know I'm a cat...cat's expect purrfection in their lives so YES blogosphere is already a wonderful place but we will strive for more interaction between species.

As Mayor, what will you do to thwart using the USPS to redistribute rodents... especially rodents who carry curses and/or explosives?
Tank

A: Tank thank you for asking this most important question.  Around these parts when mailing something via USPS, we are asked if the package contains anything dangerous, hazardous or perishable........Since each of those words describe rodents who carry curses and/or explosives they are not redistributed via USPS.  However, my Dad has a buddy who uses a humane trap to catch them in his yard then he releases them at the place he used to work.  MOL

As Mayor, what will you do about the 'Somedoggy and Somekitty' problem plaging blogville households? These doggies and kittehs break into OUR houses at all times of the day and night, reeking havoc ~ then WE INNOCENT puppers and kittehs gets blamed!

Also, what is your postition on a chewie/nip in every bowl?
Ruby


A:  Ruby OMDs this is a very serious problem here in Blogville.  First of all my mayoral cabinet consists of a Top Cop Sarge!!   He has two + years of top cop experience so rest assured this problem will be addressed as soon as I'm sworn in as the official Mayor.    My position on chewie/nip in every bowl is that our bowls stay full of chewies and nips 24/7 and should our peeps fall down on the job we will be allowed to give them 20 lashes with wet spaghetti noodles.

Q:  Now Miss Madi what is your polysee on energy? I myself support sun power, think it can't be beat. What about you?? MOL
Abby and the Crew At Manx Mnews

A:  Abby you bet your long white whiskers I have a polysee on energy.
I'll share it with you!  Some days Mom doesn't have enough energy beclaws she doesn't get enough coffee.  I've tried and tried to tell her if she would just join me in a sun puddle for about 10 minutes a day
she would have more than enough energy to run her battery.  So as you can see I 100% agree with you
I support SUN POWER!!

I have answered all the questions we rec'd up until 6:41pm DLS time on Tuesday Oct 23, 2012.
Any questions left after that time will be answered on
Thursday, October 25, 2012
Thank you all for such addressing such impawtant 
issues
Sincerely,
Madi(son)D. Cat
I'm running for Mayor and I approved this 
mess.

Madi's Musical Monday


Happy Monday dudes and dudettes!
So here is the scoop on this video
 ****************
  On the weekends Mom and Dad listen to oldies on the radio.
Saturday Mom walked into the family room to find my tail swishing in time with the song

"Never on a Sunday" 
(except it was Saturday MOL)

 This is our first attempt at taking a video with the iPad then
posting it on the blog...Lo and behold it worked.  She actually recorded the entire song but we rec'd a message that it was too long to send via email so we shortened it. 

ENJOY!!
