The Pet Presidential Candidates
Thunder T. Jump
Mr. Jump is a proud businessdog with a history of success building dog houses and kitty condos. He plans to improve the economy by reducing taxes on milkbones and requiring all dogs to work for their biscuits. Mr. Jump supports increased taxes on foreign pet food and limiting government control of pet health insurance plans.
Mr. Thunder T. Jump wants to “Make American Dogs Great Again!”
Mr. Jump yaps a lot, and it can get him in trouble. He is in hot water with both cats and chickens, key constituencies, due to his inflammatory tweets. Recent news stories have emerged about his hoarding of bones and his habit of nipping cats. Border collies support his hard line on unlicensed dogs, but it has cost him support in immigrant communities like Satos.

Belly Rub Party
Secretary Missy RinTinTinTon has dedicated her career to fighting for puppies and kittens. She has worked tirelessly making sure that all pets can afford to live a happy life with enough kibble and biscuits and a warm bed.
Secretary Missy RinTinTinTon supports responsible trade that favors American businesses, equal rights for all dogs, cats, birds, and farm animals regardless of their lifestyle choices, and reformed universal pet health insurance.
Missy’s Campaign has been plagued with scandal since news stories broke that she allegedly stole cake off the kitchen counter. Leaked stories allege that the cake was to be served for a birthday party for Henny Sanders. Secretary RinTinTinTon’s long term campaign manager resigned when these allegations broke.
Her campaign slogan is “Pets: Stronger Together” and #Imwithmissy

Mr. Gary Buttons
Cats for Freedom Party
Mr. Buttons is running for the Cats for Freedom Party. He stands for less government regulation, more individual freedoms and freedom of religion, more free-trade, and removing threats to civil liberties to dogs and cats alike.
When he is not fighting tooth and claw against wasteful spending, Mr. Gary Buttons spends his time climbing the highest chairs and counters.
Mr. Buttons has come under fire for his lack of political experience and knowledge. When asked about his opinion on the Friskies recall scandal, he had trouble remembering that Friskies is the largest brand of cat food in an awkward and embarrassing media flub.
His slogan is “Meow Free!”
