Hot Accessories for Your Patriotic Pet
Published on December 01, 2013
In case you missed it — say, due to being buried in a cat box during the last year or so — we’re in the midst of election season. Folks across the nation are preparing to belly up to the ballot box this November, after months of hand-wringing over whom they’d like to see in the White House next January.
In the meantime, we’ve got yard signs and buttons to help us show support for Barack Obama or Mitt Romney. But what about the four-legged members of your family, who are surely as invested in the election as their democratically responsible owners? Well, there’s a collar, food bowl or sweater for that. Below, take a gander at some of the hottest political accessories made just for your pet.
Warm Woolies Keep Tails Waggin'
This toasty Obama Dog Sweater is perfect for the chilly months of election season. It's made for dogs of all shapes and sizes, right here in the good ol’ USA.
You won’t find any “official” Mitt Romney pet merchandise out there, but fortunately our friends at CafePress have us covered. Here’s a cool “Peace, Love, Mitt” hoodie, or, for feminine four-leggers, there’s the “Woman for Mitt” version. Both come recommended by Seamus, who knows the value of staying warm on long campaign road trips.

Threads For Quadrupeds
The world is Fido’s runway in this stylish Obama Dog Tee, adorned with the president’s logo and cute little dog bones. The shirts are 100% cotton and quite democratic, as they’re made for dogs of all sizes and shapes.
A Fine Feline Accessory
Who knows if our fashion finicky cats would pick this out for themselves, but we think this “I Meow for Michelle” cat collar is quite chic. It even comes complete with a jingle bell!
Not only will your friends and neighbors know where your pet lives, they’ll also know which candidate he supports with these engravable pet tags. Tons of styles are available, including this traditional flag design or flirty Ann Romney.

A Refreshing Election
Your political pooch can cool off after a long walk down the campaign trail with a drink from this simple, blue dog bowl.
Tender Vittles of Victory
Cats are especially familiar with making their opinions known, and this small Romney 2012 food bowl certainly helps to make a statement. The heavy stoneware vessel holds up to 26 ounces of freedom food.
