Campaign latest and a bit of a nap!

As you can see, Austin and Tigger are taking some time out from the exhausting election campaign. Well, Tigger has not really been helping, but he’s been napping extremely hard in the background and that of course complies completely with policies 1, 2 and 3 on Austin’s election manifesto.  

If you want to know why Austin is resting up, it is because he and his energetic campaign manager, Nellie - The Cat (who is not really) from Hell, went to visit his shelter yesterday, Freshfields Animal Rescue. If you haven’t already see the excellent write up, then click here to go to Nellie’s headquarters to read about what occurred. It’s a must read!

Our next post will include an interview with Lesley Tarleton, where she discusses current challenges and opportunities for Freshfields. Well, not so much an interview, more of a chat really!

  1. We're excited to learn more about Freshfields!
    Nellie's post was wonderful. Such beautiful countryside and such beautiful animals!

    We'll be sure to tune in.
    Ok, you may go back to your naps now.

  2. Austin - it truly is impressive just how well you can run a campaign while so aggressively napping!! And Kudos to Tigger too!! Great job!!

    Nellie did such a great job with the Freshfields post and it is wonderful that we can be part of something where we are helping so many animals.

  3. You kitties deserve a nice long nap for all that campaigning!! If I were your human, I'd throw in some treats too, MOL.

    I have a fun little quiz up today, hope you can come by!

  4. I don't know about this trusting a tux business, Austin. Because a tux is trying to usurp my throne! Errr.....technically not mine but Angelina's throne...but I'm occupying it now. If you can help me put this little tux in his place, I'll vote for you. Deal? har har har *evil laughs*

  5. Are you sure Austin and Tigger aren't plotting something? You're lucky to have a proper manager in Nellie.

  6. dood...hope ewe both haza grate week oh end, we will take a ponee, dont forget ta eat much trout, nap often, & dreem mice :)

    peace out N rock on

  7. You guys have been really busy with your campaign and have definitely earned your rest.

  8. Great that you and Nellie vissited the Shelter yesterday so we all could see all the different animals that lives there.
    I hope they all will find new and loving homes !

  9. I'm looking forward to the chat and hearing more about Freshfields!

  10. I love your slogan "You Can Trust A Tux" very nice!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  11. Austin, does the Tux-Trusting extend to little orca whale type female tuxedo cats? We need to know!

  12. Can't wait after all it's all about the shelters, isn't it. Since Austin has his tux on, he should come to our pawty. I think that Brian's, who's done the least amount of electioneering is gonna win after we work our bums off.

  13. Austin, you deserve a well earn't rest..You and Nellie have been working so hard..Keep ya strength up buddie :) xx00xx

  14. Yup, you had better rest up Austin. You have a very busy week next week campaigning. So have yourself a good nap and Tigger is right there to support you. What could be better. Take care.

  15. Austin
    You are a fabulous campaigner!!!

  17. That Nellie is a good one, and I think she is not from there too! Isee what you mean about Tigger!

  19. The campaign sure is heating up, Austin! We've enjoyed learning more about all these terrific shelters. We wish they all could win!!

    Just got back from Freshfields. Want to hug them all - but since I can't the next best thing is voting for Austin! (Your devoted election crew's work will pay off!)

  21. The competition sounds really interesting good luck!

  22. There can never be too many Naps, Austin. I'm behind you 100% on that front, Pal. Looking forward to a post-election pint! (Will you still want to hang out if you become Ruler of the World??)

  23. Zee and Zoey-Deb Barnes first lines got mom really laughing! That was good!

  24. We never met a Tux we didn't Trust!
    Great job Austin, Freshfields is lucky to have a supporter like you!

    Harry, Dexter and Tipp

  25. It's always about the napping. Think about how much work you can get done AFTER you've taken a refreshing nap?

    (this is entirely Sammie's philosophy, by the way).

  26. Austin it is good to demonstrate the greatness of the napping plank in the campaign. Good that the campaign is going well

  27. P.S. You know, if Katie wins, I might be able to have her set you up with your furry own Brass Ones. Just sayin'.

  28. My cats think they are king and queens so they don't need no election campagne !

  29. Hey wait, is Tigger staying for real now? I seem to notice him more often than not. And Pink Boy... err, Austin probably doesn't show it but I'm sure he enjoys the company.

    About the campaign, to show my support, I will visit Nellie's blog and read about it. I saw the picture of "Mom and Dad" in their post.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  30. Wonderful story -- just got back from reading! Go Austin!


We LOVE to hear from you! :)
