|In This Election, It's Running Cats and Dogs|
A fund-raising drive is capitalizing on the intense interest in politics this year with a campaign that elaborately mimics an election, as a pair of candidates vies for voter approval with video clips on YouTube, signs, posters, bumper stickers, brochures, buttons and profiles on social-networking Web sites like Facebook, Catster and Dogster.
Catster? Dogster? Yes, in this campaign, the candidates are named Spike and Biscuit rather than Barack and Hillary or John and Mike. On the campaign's Web site as of early Sunday evening, Biscuit, a female cat, and Spike, a male boxer, were tied at 50 percent apiece in a result evocative of the race between Senators Obama and Clinton.
