Straw Hat Cat-Style

Straw Hat
I wear it when it’s hot,
I wear it even if it’s not.
‘Tis my favorite hat
I always wear it when I go out.
When I am in the sea,
Or even when I am not
I will always be seen
With my favorite hat.


When I wear my favorite red vest
Together with my favorite blue shorts
My favorite hat will look its best
Though it’s still good with any clothes.
I am my hat,
My hat is me.
If I am to be without my hat,
Then who would I be?
Until the rightful day
That my promise be fulfilled
I shall keep it safe
On the top of my head.

---Lawrence Basallote



Do you know that today is Straw Hat Day? I didn't, until I got an email from my furiend Ann Adamus from the blog, Zoolatry, inviting everyone to pawticipate!

Here is info about Straw Hat Day directly from Ann:
"As "bestest" we can figure out, Straw Hat Day has been celebrated for about a gazillion-bazillion years mebbee (well, at least since like the 1920s) ...
when the men put away their wooly winter hats and donned their summer straw chapeau in honor of the warm weather!
(and who isn't ready to welcome warm weather this year?)
And no reason at all that the ladies can't do the same!
Around the pet blogosphere, Straw Hat Day has been celebrated since furever."

Cody I think you look fantabulous in your straw hat....I think straw makes a perfectly comfy hat - airy, classy - purrfect for a couple of mancats like us!

Hugs, Sammy
