straw hat


We ladies of Kitties Blue are all gussied up for Straw Hat Day. We’ve been having lots of sunshine lately so these lovely hats will protect us from getting bad sunburns.* Plus, we think we all look extraordinarily pretty.

If you are wondering where Mauricio has gotten off to, you can see him below with the love of his life Allie (Friends Furever). They are the caretakers of the new Catnip Greenhouse, provided by Troop Leader Sammy (onespoiledcat), for the Cat Scouts Worldwide Wildcats. This afternoon will be the grand opening party for the greenhouse. Scouts will be bringing catnip plants for the greenhouse. Allie and Mau have dressed for the occasion, with appropriate straw hats.

We’ll see you tomorrow for Athena and Marie’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. And don’t forget we will be having another guest host for our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. You’ll want to come by and see who it is and enter your own selfie.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

*  If your cats go outside and enjoy lying in the sun, you should put sunscreen on their ears and nose, especially if your cat has white ears and a pink nose. These areas are easily sunburned (solar dermatitis) and your kitty can develop skin cancer (squamous cell carcinoma).

You look fabulous in your hats. Allie is having such a good time working in the greenhouse with Mau!! At least she didn’t inherit Mom’s black thumb.

Allie is devastated she missed straw hat day, but our mom has been out of town and we’ve been dreadfully deprived. Can you tell?

Happy Straw Hat Day! So far I’ve managed to dodge wearing a straw hat because my human forgot to pull it out. I’m still embarrassed over the cowboy hat debacle!
