Australian Politics, Budgets and Disaster Movies

"I'll be looking at the budget very closely." - Mr Bumpy.
Hello out there in the Bloggosphere,

I know the election is still a long way off.

But there's still things happening that a savvy politicat like me has to watch.

For example, it's budget day today. You can bet I'll be looking at that very closely.  I'll be especially looking to see if the humans have yet decided to provide subsidised catnip for poorer cats, and funding for education in caring for cats properly.

That second point, educating humans in caring for cats properly is extremely important.

My humans are a good example of poor education in cat care.  Would you believe Mum moved me last night, when I was settled down comfortably and sound asleep? All because Mr Woof was crying about not being able to get into his bed. She's actually got a degree, a couple of them in fact, but her education completely skipped over the point that a sound-asleep cat should never be bothered.

That story gets worse.  Would you believe when I woke up this morning, my Friskies dish was empty?

The other thing I want to watch closely is all these other new parties in Australian politics.  Unlike the Feline Pawty, some of them seem a bit strange.

The latest one is Clive Palmer's United Australia Party.  Mr Palmer is the super-rich mining magnate who bought a high class golf course and resort, and stuck a life-sized animatronic dinosaur in it.  He wants to fill it with more dinosaurs and have his own Jurassic Park.  He's also building a replica Titanic, the Titanic II. I think Mr Palmer likes movies, but maybe he doesn't watch them all the way through and see how they end.  Anyway, my point is that if the latest force in Australian politics likes to reproduce disaster movies in real life, maybe Australia needs the Feline Pawty even more than I realised.

I'm off to have a long nap, so I'm ready to give my full attention to the budget when it's announced tonight.

Until next time we meet in the Bloggosphere,
I remain,

Mr Bumpy,

Supreme Feline Overlord,
Feline Pawty Prime Minispurrial Candidate
