A mother’s work is never done, and mothers never get all the thanks they truly, richly deserve. This image bears a striking resemblance to the job my mother had to do, and she did it magnificently, courageously, and lovingly.

Thank you to the greatest Mom in the world — mine! Happy Mother’s Day! I love you!

Simon’s Cat by The Elephant's Child

Simon Tofield is a British animator who obviously has a cat.  Or perhaps cats, plural.  In any case, he appreciates idiosyncrasies of the species.

We, at American Elephants, have two cats, who sleep next to the keyboard.  We do not believe in the dog/cat argument which is nonsense.  Sensible dogs and cats get along just fine.  We love dogs too, and horses, and bunnies and  birds. We even enjoy watching the raccoons through the window, but not close up.  They hiss when they don’t like you.

Pet Owners Prefer McCain by American Elephant


I never trust a person who doesn’t love animals. Unless they were attacked as a child, beaten with dead animal carcasses, or something similarly traumatic, there really is something deeply wrong with them. A new poll by “the-news-service-that-shall-not-be-named” and Yahoo News lends new political perspective to that belief.

According to the poll of 1,759 adults, pet owners prefer John McCain over Obama 42 to 37 percent. Dog owners prefer McCain by nine points, cat owners prefer him by three.

Conversely, the heartless, animal-hating minority of rat-bastards that don’t care enough about anyone but themselves to own a pet prefer Obama by 48 to 34 percent.

As far as the candidates go, the McCain family has an English Springer Spaniel named Sam, a mutt named Coco, turtles Cuff and Link, a black and white short-hair named Oreo, one ferret, three parakeets and a bunch of saltwater fish.

The Obama family has no pets, but Barack has promised his daughters a dog, “after the election.”

Looks like my instincts were right.
