Cory Concession Speech

My friends, we have come to the end of a short journey. The worlds cats have meowed, and they have meowed loudly. A little while ago, I had the honor of visiting Coco's blog to congratulate her.
(hissing)

Please.....

To congratulate her on being elected the next President of the Cat Blogosphere! This is a historic election, and I recognize the special significance it has for Feline-Americans and for the special pride that is ours today.

I urge all cats... I urge all cats who supported me to join me in not just congratulating Coco, but offering our next President our goodwill and earnest effort to find ways to come together to find the necessary compromises to bridge our differences (floofy vs. slinky) and help restore our prosperity, defend our security in a dangerous world (against vishus deer and evil squirrel), and leave our kittens a stronger, better blogosphere than we inherited.

I want to thank my team. My momma Ellie who supported me and was with me all the way. To my Grete dog for heading up my not-so-secret service team. To my PR team of MZ &A (you know who you are). To the Creek Cats for their loyal support. And to Chey for providing inspiration, to let us all believe that Yes Cats Can!...even if we choose not to! A special thank you to all the kitties who participated and to Misha who came up with the idea.

Thank you so much, for without all of you this would not have been possible.

Play time! I'm free to be a kitten cat once again!

Oh, my mom said that she is so proud of me that she's getting me a REALLY BIG PRESENT! I should be getting it VERY soon! I wonder what it is???

Well that was a lovely speech, largely because it mentioned me... Still I am not sure I want to recognize any president. After all, I am my supreme authority. I wonder if all cats think like that? No wonder humans have gotten the better of us!

What a nice speech! It was an honor to be your opponent. Now I can go back to snoozing!

Cordial Cory,

What a kind and gentle concession speech. I am a little teary eyed. It's late, and all us cats want to snooze, but I couldn't go to sleep without a long distance headbonk to you. (Teri said it's really called bunting behavior)

Your furrend,

Coco

You are very gracious in your concession speech, Cory! We're not sure we'd be so nice!

Hm, well, if THIS was the present then I hope you'll like it :-)

Ever the gentleman (even to the bitter(sweet) end...). True grace, class and charm.
Such composure and self assuredness. We tip our hats to you Cory... on a well run race.

PS this new blog format is the cat's meow; just so purrty.
