There are a lot of #CatsAgainstBrexit

Because cats have opinions too.

On Thursday, June 23, the E.U. referendum vote will determine whether Britain will remain a part of the European Union. Both sides have lobbed arguments about the economy, immigration, national identity, and more, but you know what hasn’t been considered yet in the debate? Cats. 

So Lilian Edwards started the hashtag #CatsAgainstBrexit to show the world where the nation’s felines stand. And, sure, why not?

The Daily Dot has reached out to Edwards about the inspiration behind the hashtag, but she has not responded as of this posting. But as such a hashtag would suggest, cats appear to be firmly anti-Brexit, presumably because they believe remaining a part of the European Union will help keep Britain’s economy strong. 

Cats are also generally not as nationalistic and don’t believe immigrants are ruining Britain’s culture.

However, there are cats that appear to be firmly pro-Brexit, worrying that remaining in the E.U. will mean more immigrants will continue to flood Britain’s workforce and drive down wages.
It’s unclear what the nation’s dogs think of Brexit. Better ask the queen.

Who's winning the #Brexit Twitter war in the U.K.? It's hard to know exactly
As the U.K. prepares to vote whether to leave the European Union, tensions over the impending “Brexit” vote have reached a fever pitch. A bizarre stand-off between a pair of dueling floatillas on the Thames River in London earlier this week bordered on the ridiculous, but a fatal attack on an anti-Brexit MP the following day by a suspected neo-Nazi who yelled “Britain First” in the midst of his assault, turned the mood deathly serious.
