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!!!  





OK….you asked for it….Mom got me this silly visor with sunglasses THING and I’m trying to humor her by allowing her (just barely) to take my picture in it!  Of course I’d never sit still long enough for her to put it on me – SOOOOO – Daddy picked me up, put me on his shoulder, Mom stuck this “thing” on my head and whammo – I tried really hard to avoid the photo taking deal.

As you see – THEY won, but I did manage to squirm so much that one of the pictures is blurry and the others are – well – not so hot!  LOL

Sam in his visor and sunglasses!

How's a guy supposed to look dignified in this hat???

And here are the other two pictures I allowed (just barely) Mom to take…….LEMME DOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWN!!!

Sam looking like a real dude.........

Dad I can't believe you helped Mom do this to me!

Daddy’s punishment for helping Mom carry out this injustice was for me to dig my claws into his new yellow polo shirt……LOL……it’s only fair if you ask me.  At least I didn’t  cause bodily harm – just a couple of minor holes.  Let that be a reminder to you that I’m a CAT not a DOLL to be dressed up and paraded around.
Blurry but you get the drift...Sam's not thrilled with his new hat!

At least I managed to squirm enough to cause a blurry picture! HA!

Last but not least…..and notice that I was so wiggily and Mom was in a big fat hurry to take this picture that it’s a bit blurry……you know what?  I look pretty good in this thing don’t I…..rather debonaire and cool – like I’m ready to go out and play a game of tennis or something.  Maybe I made too big a deal out of this whole “hat thing”……
I bet the young lady cats in the neighborhood would be impressed if they could see me in this visor.  Quite the dude. 
OK…..I officially forgive my parents for ganging up on me and taking these pictures.  Besides, they seemed to find it quite entertaining and anything I can do to make them happy, I’ll do!  After all, that’s what they do for yours truly…………..
So what do you think folks?  Am I quite the dude or what?
Happy Sunday (and I do mean SUN)…………..
