How low can they sink? Palin's friends say she hates cats.

What a weird article. If they were real friends for a start, they wouldn't be doing interviews about her. And all the article says is that she apparently doesn't like cats. I can't believe they even bothered with a story

Maybe someone will post a youtube link of the actual interview from Good Morning America on ABC. I can't because my computer is so slow it can't even load the youtube home page.

I saw the part where the one says she doesn't like cats. Well there goes the relationship with the current Canadian PM. He and his wife foster and do rescue.

Good lord, the only thing said in that article is that some of her friends don't agree with her politics (which is their right) and that she hates cats. My parents hated cats and that doesn't make them bad people. Everyone has their preferences. What does that have to do with politics?

As for the friends, not all friends agree on politics. That doesn't mean they aren't friends, they just have different beliefs and ideals. If her friends said they would vote for her JUST because they were friends, I wouldn't respect them at all.

How odd...
When I watched the video, I heard the first gal say. "Well, she doesn't li...she doesn't care for cats, very much."
The other gal said, "Oh yeah, she's afraid of my cat."

That's a little different than, "She hates cats."

I saw the same thing, and I have to agree. When I think "hates cats", I think of someone out trying to run them over.

Not caring for cats, or not wanting to be around them, is a far cry from hating cats.

As far as I'm concerned, that's the only GOOD thing he's got going for him so his like of cats unfortunately isn't enough to tip the scales to balance. With any luck on October 14 we shall have a new PM. I'm keeping my fingers crossed anyway.

As usual, much made out of nothing - I love how innocent things said can be turned into horrible accusations.

With any kind of luck, she won't have the opportunity to have any official "relationship" with him. More crossed fingers here.

This isn't an issue that anyone will vote on. It's more of an interesting aside. What a couple of self-styled "friends" say isn't exactly a postion statement from the candidate or her party.

It IS very appropriate to thecatsite, however. It's not often we get a position of cats from any candidate! I like finding out whether they have pets, etc. I'm not into using that as a reason to vote or not to vote for anyone.

This isn't just a Huffington Post thing, it was from an interview on ABC. The interview is really just a promotion piece for the big interview of Palin by Charles whatshisname? Gibson?

Maybe she's allergic to cats or has a phobia or something.

I can't even imagine a life without my sweet Gray One in it.

Yeah, maybe she says she doesn't like cats because she's never been around them. I've known several people like this and once they get one they love them! I mean whats not to like??

Besides John McCain has several cats (...and everything else) so it evens out I suppose....

With all the nit-picking and lies that have been told about Gov. Palin it's hard to tell anymore what's supposed to be taken seriously and what's just mentioned as a possible matter of interest.

My father always said he "hated" cats. That's not really true, though. He's highly allergic to cats - within 20 minutes of being at our house, even having just cleaned and the (only 2) cats were locked away at the time, he couldn't breathe.

But the main reason was that when he was younger, he had a black cat on the farm where he grew up. When it died (an accident, but he was the cause), he was so devastated that he swore he would never allow himself to hurt like that again, so would never allow himself to be close to another cat.

Now, I'm not saying that's the case with Ms. Palin, I wouldn't assume to know. But there's more than one reason why someone says they don't like/hate cats.

I have a friend that lived near a group of feral cats when she was a toddler. She was horrified when she saw the family eating rats.

One day a mean uncle picked up a kitten and threw it at her. The kitten grabbed on with his/her claws and the toddler thought the kitten was attacking her. She was so traumatized that she is still afraid of, and dislikes cats.

People can have their reasons, I guess. Me -- I love cats! They're all so adorable. I so glad that I've had them as part of my live for the last 35 years.
