In a time when the conservative right unleashes a barrage of relentless attacks against Obamacare, Get Covered America calls on its feline friends to help increase healthcare enrollment by attracting attention online. Media consultants think that anything with cats gets a bump in views, and in this video, Get Covered America isn’t holding back – cats, dogs, birds, bunnies, a turtle, a hamster and a goldfish – drop in a beat and they’ve got the whole kit and caboodle.

Both proponents and Obama-haters can agree that those uninsured are actually getting help under the Affordable Care Act, as indicated in survey after survey. And advocates won’t stop going the extra mile to reach audiences who probably love their pets – more than politics.

In fact, more Americans probably listen to their pets than pundits – and Get Covered America is banking on that theory in this latest PSA.

This menagerie reminds us of the time when Jim Carrey calls out all of his animal friends in his Miami apartment in 1994’s Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Ace does them one better with his spider monkey sidekick, otters, iguanas, macaws and even penguins in the ice box. What a classic.
