Feline Pawty

Campaign Central

Everything you need to know about the Feline Pawty's campaign for the 2013 Australian Election


The Pawty's primary policies are:

  1. Free availability of catnip (the shop shouldn't be "sold out" of nip plants)
  2. Getting catnip-flavoured Temptations treats in Australia
  3. Respite care for elderly dogs who fret when their humans are out (so cats don't have to deal with them)
  4. Homelessness - no-one should have to be feral, when there are enough humans in Australia for every cat to own one. In addition all cats should have access to sufficient Friskies, stinky fish and clean drinking water, clean litter, and treats occasionally.
  5. Making Chasing Jingle Balls an Olympic event
  6. Education and training for all humans to make them better servants to cats.
  7. Bathing of cats is banned.
  8. Naps are essential
Individual candidates will have some of their own policies with regard to local issues.
