Thursday night was a memorable evening for politics. After 16 years, Jon Stewart hosted his final episode of The Daily Show. And, after eagerly awaiting a formal get-together for months, we finally got to see the GOP’s top presidential candidates talk it out.

Among the debate’s thousands of interested viewers were a number of non-voters. Cats and dogs tuned in to the Donald Trump-led showdown in surprising numbers to see where the candidates stand on important issues like fire hydrant protocol and catnip legalization.

While celebrities were Tweeting away about the debate, these pet politicos opted for Instagram to express their feelings about the GOP’s first battle. While the animal take on the proceedings was mixed, one fact was clear after everyone’s closing statement: The Trump your cat hairstyle is set to make a triumphant return.

See this lovely look and the other furry reactions below.
