Congress: As Told By Cats

Between this weekend’s news and today’s news, I think it’s time for a little levity to go along with our afternoon tea. Yes? I don’t like cats, but I respect them, much like the ancient Egyptians did because they were good at sensing evil. Or were vessels for evil. One of the two. Whichever Wikipedia entry was more accurate.


How we think Congress spent its August recess:


ugh. Remote so far away…


How Congress thinks it spent its August recess:


"Syria for Teh Dummies"


How we view Town Halls:


"We paid for this petting, and we’re going to get all our pets in, by Gawd, by Gawd!"


How Congress views Town Halls:


"From whence did these barbarians come?!"


How Congress would really like to treat Angry Birds:


"In muh belly, bird"


How Congress really acts around Angry Birds:


"I’m just gonna go sit over here. Wut?"


How we think Congress responds to its constituents:


"Yeah, I’m going to need you to not do that."


How Congress thinks it responds to its constituents:


"I tolerate this. I tolerate you people."


How we think Congress responds to constituent requests for pictures:


"We call this the ‘Chuck Schumer’-I love all cameras"


How Congress would like to respond to constituent requests for pictures:


"We call this the ‘Harry Reid’-"Away! Stinky Tourist!"


How we view media coverage of Congress:


"POLITICO CAT-likes to troll Congressional Cats"


How Congress views media coverage of itself:

Cat Trap

"You bring this on yourselves, kids."

How Congress views its bickering:


"With the media and their respective bases, egging them on to fight to the death!!"


How we view Congressional bickering:



"Oh, you!"
"No, you!
"Nap time?
"Nap time."

  • Craig Phillips

    I love cats!
    They taste just like chicken!

    • suehimel

      Quoting Phil Robertson?

  • travelingon

    Awww, I like cats, especially that cats you find Michelle.. I’m curious, do you find the picture first and then the caption, or do you have the caption in mind and then hunt for a picture.

    • mich mccormick

      Both, really. Sometimes I’ll be humming along across my favorite sites and see a gif that I like and save it for later. Or I’ll excerpt something from a fav movie, like the ‘Ghostbusters.’ Above all, it helps to come up with a theme. Today’s subject of ridicule was Congress. Then I imagined how funny it would be if cats illustrated Congress’ behavior.

        That one .gif with the poor cat having its "space" violated by all these bothersome puppies is a classic.

      • travelingon

        You are good at what you do.

  • freneza

    I bet whoever owns that very cross looking cat is happy he can’t talk!

  • Steve_Flesher

  • section9

    Magnificent, Michelle, as usual.

    • senator20526

      I was wondering what my title was…..thanks…

  • CharterOakie

    But I’m curious how it worked out between the cat and the eagle.

    • socon

      That eagle looked like it meant business!

      • Polarbearpapa

        If the eagle meant business…the cat would have never seen him coming….

        • socon

          It looked like the eagle was sizing the cat up to see if it could take it. lol

          What do you think the eagle was doing?

          • senator20526

            That eagle was thinking if the cat was dinner or supper..

            • socon

              That’s what I thought.

  • hope4palins

    I loved the "How We View Media Coverage of Congress" because Cat A swats the tail of Cat B who promptly turns around and swats Cat C. Classic. Ditto the one where the pigeon starts the fight then gets out of the way to watch. Ditto the poor soul who is just trying to hang on as the trampoline is being rudely moved about (in the cat’s view of course). As for the Eagle, I chukcled at how the cat tried to be casual, but the fluffed up tail told the story. The Eagle owned the fence, knew it, and the cat just had to deal with it. They are unusual creatures.

  • John_Frank

    Hilarious. Thank you Michelle.

  • ZH100

    Excellent! Thank you, Michelle.

  • OldPat
