I'm sure that my cats know nothing about politics. They don't know the difference between a Trump and a Clinton, and they were never asked to cast a ballot for one party or another.
But that doesn't mean that they haven't been impacted by this election.
I'm sure my cats have heard the yelling coming from the pundits and the candidates on the television. I'm sure they've heard me yelling back at some of those pundits and candidates. And I know they've heard my husband and I discussing the impact of this nasty election and what it means for our family.
So I can't help but think how happy they must be today, when all of that is over. No more debates. No more voting. No more of all that. Sure, planning progresses. But the yelling part? That's probably done. I'm sure they're happy about that. And they've been trying to soothe me by enticing me to nap with them and listen to them purr. I haven't been able to do that quite yet, but I'm trying.
Today, regardless of whether your side won or lost, I hope we can all take a few cues from our cats in order to repair the damage this election season has done.
Let's all stretch. Let's all breathe. Let's all nap. Let's all come together.
In that spirit, I'm moderating comments a little differently for this blog. Please: No discussion of candidates or parties or who should have won or lost. We've all had enough of that (I know I have). Let's keep it happy.
And if you need more happy, visit some of the other blogs in this hop from BlogPaws. Such fun stuff this week!
