I made the finals of the "I is for ....." at I am the Indian Princess cat.
Some posters there said my costume is offensive and this makes me sad, as I did not intend to offend.
Will you please vote for me by tomorrow at midnight? Thanks, Ko

I voted for you Ko. Right now you are in first place.

P.S. I think your costume is cute, not offensive.

Hi Ko. Being a catster friend, I saw you last night but was having trouble voting from home. Mommy voted from the office today though.

I love your outfit and am surprised so many people are making bad comments. Good luck.

Hey Ko, we voted for you! And it looks like you are doing great!

1st. Ko 27% 700
2nd. Chloe 25% 650
Silly 11% 272

As for the costume being offensive. I don't think it is the costume that is offending people Ko? But rather what you named the these part refering to Native American's as "Indians" is offensive and rascist.

Good luck!

Update: Ew, Mumsie and I just read some of the comments, which are assinine. Don't take it personally, you didn't mean to offend.

Hi! Thanks everyone, Ko here. And Trixie, we did submit the picture with two other suggested captions-"Indigenous Purrson" and "Indigenous Pet". The contest is "I is for..." and will be included in a children's book, and that is why we think "Indian" was used..because it is easier to pronounce, and certainly not meant to offend anyone.

Yeah - I can understand. I mean in Canada here, we still call it the "Indian Act", yet individuals are offended by it? [change it]. But in all honesty, to attack you is a bit worthless. I mean who are you that they are holding on a pedestool to be politically correct? [attacking the wrong person]

We're just kitties!!!!shrug

Personally people can be total idiots.

I have always been known as Apache, the Indian Princess. I am proud to be me - and if someone thinks it is not politically correct - that is silly.

Are we changing the Words to 10 Little Indians too? One little, two little, three little Indians, four little, five little, six little Indians - seven little, eight little, nine little Indians - Ten Little Indian Boys.

Mom grew up singing that song and it still makes her smile.

We love your Indian Costume - and of course we voted for you.

Silly Humans - they need to learn from us Cats - we have no silly politically correct standards. We like each other for who we are.
