Cats for Equality
cap, captain miss america

Okay, here is how we are going to do this thing:

This is Catman:

This is George Cattington:

This is a, um, carrcat? A what! I don’t know, that’s a stupid name!

Do you want a cat that is also a thing? Of course you do! Here is what to do!

CALL or EMAIL a New York State Senator who is undecided or unconfirmed on the Marriage Equality bill. here is Maureen Johnson’s post with all the details, including how to approach a phone call. Send me your message confirmation if you email, or let me know the result of your call, and tell me what thing or person (or place, I guess) you would like a cat to be. I will draw for at least ten people, and then we’ll see how I am doing with keeping up. If you’ve already done this, that counts, too.

You know you want a cat that is a thing! Also you want everyone to be allowed to get married. Weddings and cats for everyone!

I think you should draw same-sex marriage cats and send those along to your senator.

Like you, I thought Grisanti was the most likely swing vote, but I could not resist the image of the Statue of Liberty, so I also emailed Senator Ball. I hope it helps. I'll send the confirmations when they come.

Can I be totally egotistical (which is very catlike) and request a catified portrait (assuming I'm not the eleventy gazillionth person whose already replied)?

Go for it, what do you want your cat to wear?

I like groovy embroidered hippy blouses from India, and these are my glasses: http://www.framesrx.com/framedetail/282117.htm

Thank you, this is a very kind use of your talents (I was planning to email Senator Grisanti last night even before you offered art!).

Excellent, I will cat you tonight. May not have a scanner for the weekend but I'll get them up on Monday if it's not possible before then.

Yay! Of course, Marriage Equality is the thing (I can't help but think that it's a good thing, a step in the right direction even if it doesn't make it this time, and I hope it does, that it's a PROactive, PRO-marriage bill, not something like the Defense of Marriage act. But Lanza saying "One of the hallmark issues for our country is that faiths need to be respected." is just heart-wrenching. It's not, they can't, they...


But gay people within those faiths don't!

I totally want to be Maureen Johnson when I grow up. /random

Aw! Thank you! Tell me what you would like your cat to be.

Thank you for inspiring me to write some of these Senators! <3

(Er, by your wonderful letter, that is. The cat pics are cute but less my motivation!)

I TOTALLY want a cat who is also a thing! Or also a person! But I want more people to contact their senators even more. So I will TOTALLY claim one, but only if you have time after NEW people contact.

I will draw you all the things as cats! Or cats as things!

As I'm sure you figured "catrott" is even worse than "carrcat," but the cat/thing itself is adorable!

Haha yes! I could not come up with a reasonable name for it BUT IT IS A CAT AND A CARROT AT THE SAME TIME.

gotta love the spread of tags on this entry.
