Hank the cat and Mac the dog are here to help!  »

Virginia, you want a representative who won’t fuck with your rights and will fight for animal justice? Vote Hank the Cat for Senate. As a kitten, Hank was rescued from a kill shelter by Animal Allies of Fairfax Station, Va., and has grown into a happy, healthy cat who looks quite dashing in a tie. Remember this face come November, Virginians—finally you’re getting a senator who can wear whiskers!

Another animal coming to the aid of humans is Mac, the San Francisco Police Department’s drug-sniffing dog! He got an award last week for his work in the seizure of “over $3.75 million worth of drug money and over 500 pounds of cocaine, crack, methamphetamine, MDMA and heroin.” Way to enforce the law, pup! Mac is a three-year-old English springer spaniel who has been with the SFPD since July 2010. Also of note: He is totally adorable.

Imagine a government where animals replaced the jerks. What if the Republican candidates for president were rescued animals! What would they be? I consulted with Laura and Megan, and we say Rick Santorum would be a snake (or a weasel!), Newt Gingrich would be one of those turkeys that attacks people in their cars (or bedbugs!), and Mitt Romney would be an ostrich, or maybe just an ass.

Happy Veggie Kids: Mac!  »

Hey people! Welcome to a new Vegansaurus series: Happy Veggie Kids! Are you tired of people acting like it’s child abuse or something to deny kids meat? OMG, the babies, they need the bacon! Without it, they will be pale and sickly weaklings! I, for one, am over it. So let’s show the world what happy and healthy little veggie kids are out there!

I have some great interviews with great kids and I’ll be rolling them out periodically. First kid up: Mac! Look at that face!
Mac is a three-year-old (almost four!) vegan living in Ottawa, ON, Canada.

Vegansaurus: What is your favorite food?
Mac: Hot potatoes.
[Mom note: He loves oven fries, mashed potatoes, pierogi, tater tots, latkes, anything potato!]

What is your favorite kind of birthday cake?
Lemon one with the pink icing like for my birthday last year.

Why are you vegan?
So I can be like you, Mommy. And because it’s nice and fun.

Do you like being vegan? Why?
Yeah because all the food is so yummy.

Is it ever hard to be vegan?
No it’s always soft to be vegan.
[Mom note: Ha!]

What do your friends think about you being vegan?
They think it’s great to be that.

What is your favorite animal? Why?
Cow because I want to hug ‘em.

Do you like pink dinosaurs? Can you draw one for us? We would love it!
Yeah that would be cool!
[Mom note: but he doesn’t know how to draw that, he says]

Yay! Thanks Mac! Our first happy vegan kid. Plus: how cute is he? Those cheeks! Email me if you want your vegan or vegetarian kid to participate!
