Is that a surfboard or a ballot? …

Penelope Kitten is carrying a cat surfboard (a skateboard without wheels) and is wearing a wet suit and snorkel.
Marcy looks up from her sunspot.
Marcy: What are you doing?
penelope kitten (squeaking): heard there’s a big blue wave coming. gonna catch it. gonna hang ten.
Marcy: It’s not a blue wave. It’s a red tide.
penelope kitten: that’s in florida.
Marcy: Yeah. It stinks.
penelope kitten: i’m hoping for a blue wave.
Cynthia looks up from filling out her mail-in ballot.
Cynthia: Penelope, you can get a blue wave if you vote blue. Marcy, you are correct – the red tide is in Florida and it does stink but if you vote blue the red tide has a better chance of going away.
Hamlet (interjecting): But if I may please interject with an important question – what happens if the blue wave and the red tide commingle?
Marcy: You get a Purple Rain.
penelope kitten: oh. i don’t think prince would like that.
Cynthia: No. So – Go Vote!
Penelope Kitten rounds up her old posse – Business Cat, The Intern, and the Canvassing Twins in a last minute “get out the vote” campaign.
She brings along her surf board.

Thanks for the PSA kitties.
Mail-in ballots for all in California, is that correct? Wonderful! No reason not to vote. You can sit quietly at your kitchen table, ballot before you, and research all candidates and issues and make thoughtful decisions. If only it were that easy everywhere.
Keep that wet suit on, Penelope. The blue wave is going to be powerful and you will get soaked.
Loved the Squirrel Den art!
We have mail-in ballots or you can go to the polls. We are bringing our mail-in ballots to our polling place tomorrow.
“You get a Purple Rain.”
VOTE! VOTE BLUE!!! WE CAN DO THIS!!!
(And that RBG graphic is amazeballs.)
All fingers and paws are crossed! Ballot is filled out and ready for drop off tomorrow!
I always love hearing from Hammy!!! And, these Squirrel Den cat shirts are awesome!! We just need a Beto-Cat 🙂
