Straw CatThe media frenzy has finally settled after Dancing with the Stars’ politically infused 11th season. Speculation is now abuzz about casting for Season 12. Lindsay Lohan, Portia de Rossi, Cheryl Cole and Christine O’Donnel (on Sarah Palin’s suggestion) are rumored to have made the short list.

I don’t watch the show, but I’d like to add  two contenders to the list.

My star cats love dancing with straws. These kittens cut their new teeth on pretty pink plastic and have polished some serious moves in the process. They’re naturals, I tell ya. Let’s cast the cats, rename the show Dancing with the Straws, and root for some non-partisan talent. What say you, people of This One Wild Life?
