Mitty or 'Mitt'?

Oh, my Cod, what's happening?

Mitty heard about Mitt Romney and now wants to be called "Mitt" instead of Mitty. He thinks it makes him sound more mature and red, white and blue cool. I told him it doesn't make any difference and just keep his shirt on about growing up. What's the rush?





Mitt(y) says he's become quite capable. He can take responsibility for pests (not real mouse)






and organization, two qualities needed in any political campaign.






Now, me, I was fascinated with Mr. Santorum only because I felt like splashing on holy water every time I heard his name. It sounds like "saecula saeculorum" which means "forever and ever." Sounds like politics to me!






Anyway, you'll always be Mitty to me. Cute as can be and twice as intelligent as any Mitt out there. I say, Mitty, if you want to get into politics, start your own pawty. Call it the Surprise Party and we'll vote for you, hehe!

***We've received an interesting range of responses to whether or not Mitty should be Mitt. Mom Julie and I are in complete agreement with efurrybody else that Mitty should keep his name and would be a great candidate for the Surprise Pawty. In no way did we want to infur that we were putting our kibble behind a certain candidate. The poor little tacker's getting caught up in all the hoopla and is just being silly. (look at dose toofers!!)

Mitty, even though we're Canadian kitties, politicians are politicians, no matter what country. We think it's better to NOT be associated with any of them!

So we say stick with "Mitty."

And if you really must delve into politics, well, we think you'd do better than the humans who, at heart, really are only out for their own power and wealth, certainly not interested in the Highest Good of their fellow countrybeings or the welfare of the planet.

Oh Mitty, you are too cute for words. We think you should stick with Mitty. It just fits you better. Besides, politics are not any fun so don't get involved, that is for sure.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Random Felines said...

This is dangerous, Tom, if you get me to talking about politics. I think Mitty should change his name to Barack cos when you first mentioned Mitty, all I could think of was that "flip-flopper." in fact, I thought he was named for him. Your comments on Santorum were precious! My bad!

Whisppy said...

We don't think it's wise to get involved in politics, Mitt(y)...and we think you look more like a Mitty than a Mitt. :)

Cat said...

Mitt or Mitty, you are adorable!!!

Sparkle said...

I would be careful about the Mitt moniker, Mitty - some of my human's friends refer to the politician as "Mittens," and that definitely does not sound like a very grown up name! And don't forget - he was the guy who got flack for tying his dog to the roof of his car for a trip!

Maybe you should wait until after the election to see if you want to be Mitt or Mitty!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Surprise Pawty! I'd vote for him! hee hee!

Mitty you are such an adorable kitten! Love that first picture, shows how little you are. So much to learn in the world, isn't there?!

Mariodacat said...

ha ha Mitty - you are too cute for politics. Besides, it's a mean, nasty job. You are too nice to be doing that kind of work.

Sweet Purrfections said...

We still like Mitty for such a cute kitty!

You do know Harry Spotter is running for President on the Paws or ? slate? The announcement is on the CB. It would be nice to have another candidate representing the paws community. So go for it, Mitty!

sagechronicles said...

I agree--another party would be the best and Mitty would get my vote! Who couldn't love a tongue like that!!

Old Kitty said...

Awww me and Charlie vote for Mitty to keep Mitty cos it's a thoroughly cute name and so so adorable too!! Take care

Well Mr. Mitty Mitt, we all think you are da bomb! We hope you and Tom have a great weekend dreaming up some good kitty PAWTY ideas!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Well, Mitty, Mitt is a Mormon and while we approves of Ecumenism, you might have to find yourself a temple or sumfing if you really wants to be Mitt. I think you should stay Mitty cuz it rhymes with Spitty and that's the best reason of all!

rumpydog said...

Personally I don't care too much for the name Mitt- reminds me of an oven mitt, and every time Jen tries to bake, she sets off the smoke alarm! Better stick to Mitty.

We love LUNA said...

We say you should stick with Mitty! You've got Mitt beat by a mile! :)

Abby Normal and Stygia said...

I think you are perfect, whatever your name is... of course, as a cat, you are privileged to respond only when you desire and to the name you prefer. For instance, my sister Stygia prefers "Worm" as you may know.

I also wanted to stop by and make a belated thank you for the birthday wishes you left on my blog! Hope you are having a great day.

Purrs,
Abby Normal
