Ask not what your cat can do for you-ask what you can do for your cat.

Tired of politics as usual? Despair not: Rita Mae Brown's intrepid feline co-author, Sneaky Pie, is taking time off from her busy schedule writing bestselling mysteries to run for President of the United States. It's never too late to start! With help from her friends-the irascible gray cat Pewter, the wise Corgi Tee Tucker, and Tally, the exuberant Jack Russell-Sneaky crisscrosses her home state of Virginia hoping to go where no cat since Socks Clinton has gone: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. After all, who better to get the economy purring again than an honest tabby with authentic political stripes? Sneaky has an animal-friendly agenda to unify all Americans-regardless of whether they walk on two or four feet or even if they fly.

Human candidates have had their chance in Washington, and nowhere does it say in the Constitution that the next president cannot be a cat. Vote Sneaky!

A United Front, with Tails

"When in the Course of human events." Sneaky Pie took a breath. The cat paused in her reciting. "There's the fatal flaw right there! Human. The Declaration of Independence limits itself to a species that has weak senses and is highly irrational."
"Well, there's nothing we can do about it," Pewter re- plied to the sleek tiger cat. She had just found the perfect spot of sunlight to relax in. "Why get worked up over it? " But the gray cat's political apathy did not at all slow down the now-worked-up Sneaky Pie. "Leave these hu- mans to their own devices and eventually laws will be passed forcing us to wear clothes."
"You can't be serious." Pewter's voice rose sharply. "Underpants? " Awakened by the talk, Tally, the Jack Russell, roused herself. "Underpants. I'm not wearing underpants."
"Oh, I can see you now, a lovely floral pair of silk panties with precious lace." Pewter licked her lips, a hint of malice enlivening her face.
"Panties! Panties! Never." The pint-sized dynamo ran in circles as if chasing her tail.
"Sit down, idiot," Tee Tucker, the corgi, commanded her housemate.
"I am not an idiot." Tally sat, but not before baring her impressive white fangs.
"Dogs forced to wear silly outfits is not so far-fetched," said Sneaky Pie. "You've listened to the presidential de- bates. One Bible-thumping fellow thinks if gay marriage is passed, humans will want to marry animals. Making us wear clothes might just be the next step after that." Sneaky imagined the future with such a president.
"Gross!" Pewter spat out.
"Sex. Sex. Sex!" Tally jumped up, running in circles again.
"Sit down, for Christ's sake. You're making me dizzy," Tucker again commanded.
"Underpants, sex." The pretty little rough-coated Jack Russell raised her eyebrows. "This is just too weird." "That's my point." Sneaky Pie walked over to the distressed dog. "If a human running for president wastes everyone's time yammering about deviant sex, politics has gone truly off the rails."
"Zoom!" Tucker moved her head as though watching a speeding train, lowering her voice. She asked her three friend animals, "Have you had deviant sex? "
Sneaky Pie swatted her right on the rump. "Of course not! Among us, let's raise the tone, please!"
"Sex! Sex! Sex!" Tally shrieked in opposition.
"Will you sit down!" Both cats shouted at the young un- spayed female dog.
Tears came to Tally's soft brown eyes. "I don't want to wear frilly underpants. What can we do? "
"How about a Declaration of Independence for animals? " Pewter sensibly suggested. "People revere Thomas Jefferson's writing on humans' so-called inalienable rights, or they pretend to do so, anyway."
"Pretend is the operative word. Believe me, if he came back and tried to run as a candidate today, they'd throw him out of Convention Hall," Tucker declared.
"Back to my original thought, there's nothing we can do about it," said Pewter.
"Pewts, if these humans destroy their political system, it's going to affect us one way or the other. We are Americats, after all."
Tally jumped up in excitement, then sat right back down when she noticed all the others giving her the evil eye. "I'm an Ameridog."
"Doesn't sound as cool," Pewter scoffed, casually licking her front paw.
"Still counts." Tally took on a belligerent tone.
"She's right. We're all Americans." Tucker seconded Tally. "Yes, you are," Sneaky conceded. "Okay, the clothing and sex sickness among humans is bad enough. Even worse, their drilling, logging, mining could wipe out where we live. Chemicals, especially from some kinds of mining, leak into the soil, then into the water supply. It doesn't look good."
"Logging's okay," said Tally, now sitting herself next to Pewter, then leaning on the large cat. "You can always grow more trees."
"Tally's right again." Tucker sought to praise the excitable dog.
"Perhaps," said Sneaky, "but humans cutting
