Doing a search on Caturday for "Obama cat" resulted in the above. You can peruse all of the offerings for pets here. I'll just stick to the marketing aspects. I find these designs to be boring. I think it's a good idea to market pet stuff, but this reeks of so much phoning it in. What was different about the 2008 campaign, which started in early 2007, was the grassroots feel and the spontaneous generation of catchy art and design à la Shepard Fairey. Maybe I'm too much a fan of the quirk, but how about an Obamapaw?
