Australian Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd's Cat Tea Party

(Click here to watch if video doesn't load)

Kevin Rudd, former Prime Minister, and current Minister of Foreign Affairs in Australia has briefly taken his focus off of politics to wage a battle of another sort: He's trying to win Twinings Australian Afternoon Tea Challenge, where one lucky winner will walk off with their own custom blend.

In order to dog out the competion, Rudd enlisted the help of his cat, Jasper, and pup, Abby, to stage an impromptu tea party, in hopes of convincing the masses that his blend, described by The Herald Sun as a mix of Russian Caravan, Irish Breakfast, and Ceylon Orange Pekoe, is the top choice of furry friends everywhere (for the record, there's no actual proof they're even drinking tea from the cup).

As Rudd also mentions in the clip, above while trying to get Jasper to sample the tea, another bonus of taking home the prize is that 10 cents from every tin sold will be donated to the RSPCA.

Good luck, Kev! You have our vote!

What a cat-tivating idea! :) It's nice to know that cats have some sway, even in the realm of politics!
