Straw Hat Thursday


Oh gosh!  It’s Straw Hat Day in the blogosphere and I’m celebrating by posting my straw hat photo (don’t I look dashing?) here and in the Tabby Cat Club where you’ll see all kinds of fabulous tabby friends in their hats today!


Mom helped me locate this hat I’m wearing…….tons of swell hats pop up when you google “straw hat” but I needed just the RIGHT one with the RIGHT band on it and I think this one says “SAMMY”……all over it – don’t you??


Here’s the famous Maurice Chevalier in his straw hat……we look a lot alike don’t you think::::


When I found out about Straw Hat Day the first place I checked to see if I could find the Purrrrrrrfect hat was my favorite Cat Hat shop on Etsy.   Have you ever seen this site?   These are all homemade and any cat who’s a fashionista really needs to get familiar with this amazing shop…………….she’s got hats for EVERY occasion……..I have friends who wear the berets and they look fabulous in them………one of these days Mom will fork out the money and get me one of these because – well – don’t we all deserve an amazing chapeau (that’s HAT for those of you who don’t speak French!).    Here’s the link to Scarborough Fair………cat hats and other “headgear” for the discriminating cat (and a few dogs)!

Mom was going to post some updated pix of our gardens since things have grown a tad since we first planted them (of course), but rain off and on has kept her from heading out in the WET grass with her camera to snap photos.  You’ll just have to stay in suspense for that little treat.

That’s about it for today – the BIG EVENT is the Straw Hat Day and can expect to see a lot of them around the blogosphere – these things spread like wildfire you know…….the Cat Blogosphere is a magical place!

Grab a straw hat

and have a PAWSOME Thursday!  


P.S.   Today is the birthday of one of my dearest friends, Queen Nellie!!!

  1. Say Sammy, you look a whole lot more dapper in yours than I do in mine mol. I don’t think The Staff likes me to be honest, the stuff she’s put me through this week!! Happy Straw Hat day, buddy 🙂


    • Poor Austin – but the fact you were the First Right Guesser on my Teaser should have lifted your “post-vet” spirits a bit! I think you look FABULOUS in your hat………so there!

      Hugs, Sam


  2. Oh, my, Sammy – you are SO handsome in your straw hat! Enjoy the day!
    Hope the rain lets up, so your mom can get new pictures of her flowers to share with us.
    Love, Sundae


  3. Sammy you look like the one and only gentle-cat! That’s the look for a picnic at Downton Abbey, I’m sure. I like Etsy, there you can buy fabulous things, mostly pawmade and nearly every piece is unique, that’s sooooo great!


    • Hi Easy! I do look rather “Downton Abbey-ish” in my boater don’t I? I hadn’t thought of that but those were “the days”……..Etsy is great – so many totally cool things there including our pal Coccolino’s Mom’s bed and blanket store!!

      Hugs, Sammy


  4. Ya lookz so much like Mistur Cheevallea……RRAWR!!!! 😉
    Sowwy me gott carried away….guud greef!!!
    We must pop over n wish Penelope a Happy Birday too…busy Fursday in Bloggie Werld!!
    Lub ya Sammy frum Nylablue n Sherriellen Mum xoxoxo


  5. Dapper my friend, simply Dapper. I wandered over to that Etsy page too. Wowie Cat-zowie, me thinks we should start to sew up some of our own 😉 Quite a talent there. Petals and Blossum don’t even like a collar though, so I’m certain a hat would be out-of-the-meowsome, LOL They are not as co-operative as you Sammy Sugar-Pants (I just made up that last part cause you’re so sweet) xoxoxoK


    • Say – I think I like that nickname Miss Boomdee! Sammy Sugar-Pants…..yep – it works for me! I’m the same way about “clothes” although I have put up with an amazing array of things for the ten seconds it takes Mom to take a photo….socks, scarves even a sweater once. What can I say – when I’m sleepy I’m cooperative! HAHAHAHAHA Don’t you just LOVE that hat shop though???

      Hugs, Sam


  6. Oh Sammy, very dashing indeed!!!! You look superb in your straw hat! Happy Straw Hat Day!!!

    Woos – Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning


  7. VERY handsome, S. I could hardly tell which one was Maurice and which one was my friend Sammy. Mom bought me a hat at Petco, and I wore it last night when she Instagrammed my #idolselfie to American Idol. They didn’t show my picture, though. I think JLo was jealous of my hat….

    Love and licks,


  8. Sammy, you wear a straw hat better than any cat we know. We bet you can do a mean soft shoe as well. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo


  9. Happy Straw Hat Day my dear furrend and me must say yous does wear it well! Purrhaps better than Monsieur Chevalier!
    Thanks or the birthday wishes!


I wanna know what YOU've got to say!!
