Disciples of Otis,
Brother Oliver here. It’s been a bit of a rough morning for the Otis for POTUS campaign. The Leader was very excited at the beginning of the day, declaring it to be “Stump Speech Sunday” and then setting off to use His superior oration skills to woo the crowds and gain the support of undecided voters. Since there is only one undecided voter in the house, Leader Otis headed straight up to Kitty Valhalla to kick off His speaking tour by winning the heart and mind of Thomas.
Seeing as I am kind of the de facto campaign manager for Leader Otis, I attended the stump speech to see how it went. The Leader was very impressive, and His arguments in support of the Tabbycats party platform were extremely compelling. Still, He was talking to Thomas, so you can guess how the speech went over. Yep, after Leader Otis completed His speech, Thomas simply looked at Him and said, “I doubt it!” Leader Otis was completely deflated. He slumped down onto the shelf on which He had delivered His speech and brooded.
So we’ve hit a speed bump on our road to The White House, but I’m going to try to give Leader Otis a big pep talk and get Him back out there on the campaign trail. If the Guardians let us out into His Outdoor Domain later on, perhaps He can try his speech again on the Limbo Kitties. I should have known better than to let Him kick off the campaign by speaking to Thomas. When it comes to convincing a kitty to trust you, that little boy is one tough nut to crack!
So Sayeth Brother Oliver
