Straw Hat Day marks the point in the year when you should put away your day-to-day felt hats (until the Felt Hat Day on September 15th) and start to wear a straw hat to keep cool.
We don’t know why humans celebrate this day. Hardly any of them even wear hats anymore. Do baseball caps count? Lots and lots of people (even our dad) wear those. I don’t think any of them ever put those away.
No matter, the mom thinks we should all don straw hats today and cavort in the grass. As she is still in the process of recovering from that scorpion sting, we decided to cut her an itty-bitty amount of slack and pose for this photo.
Now that y’all have seen us, we’re taking these things off and turning them into chew toys. If your human has shamed you in this same way, we hope you follow our lead.
HAPPY STRAW HAT DAY!

Now that was a lot of straw hats to fit and color coordinate! Smashing job Miss Janet
Whoa! 7 straw hats is a lot of work. I fought tooth and claw not to wear mine. Hope your Mom gets to feeling better.
we didn’t know that there’s a straw hat day. but our human dad and mom wears them for gardening 🙂
Happy Straw Hat Day, dear ones. You look fantastic! 🙂
This photo is great!! You all look so adorable in your straw hats! We are glad that the weather is warmer and worthy of straw hats instead of felt ones! We know you all must be too.
Hope your mom is feeling better after her encounter with the scorpion.
We don’t wear hats, we might play with a hat.
Happy Calendar Cat Day to Lisbeth and Astrid.
You all look so cute in your straw hats. We hope your mom is feeling better.
Our mom didn’t dare! But you are all looking mighty cute! We are purring your mom is doing better today. Did you feel the windows rattling?
you all look so delightful in your hats and what a great backdrop!
Wow, what a great photo. We love you guys and all your hats. You did a fantastic job here.
LOVE it – you all look stunning in your hats. It’s fun isn’t it. Tell mom to take care of that bitey – it can be serious.
You all look great!
SERIOUSLIES, we are ever so glad our human is still wiped out from the conference. She didn’t have two brain cells left to rub together – which meant NO straw hats for us! (of course there’s this teensy little problem we have: she came back to a computer that was deaded – and we did NOt have anything to do with that, honest!).
Oh and she wanted to thank you for the brilliant idea (that she totally missed) of mentioning the woofie at BlogPaws who received the K-9 Kevlar vest so that he can patrol with protection! That post was written 2 weeks ago and if she had a computer at home (or the photo of the K-9 cop woofie here at work) she’d add it. Maybe tomorrow…? Anyways, FAB idea!!!
How are you feeling??????
Don’t you ALL look so cute!!!
Happy Straw Hat Day!
We got the same treatment. Great idea! Lets really sharpen our claws on these hats
Y’all surely do look great! Happy Straw Hat Day from the Cat in the Hat!
Aw, you all look cute!
My gosh… You all look so GREAT in your hats!
Mummy Janey wears hats…she doesn’t mind teethy marks in them (unless she just hasn’t found them yet).

I do love all the frolicking in the hats on the grass, you do look pawsome!! I do hope your human will recover quickly from that nasty sting!!
Oh My Heartsie Girl

Good Morning Kitties Blue….What a wonderful picture of all of you in your summer hats. Ms Lisbeth you look very fetching. My siblings and I don’t do hats but after seeing how cute all of you look I think mom may make us do it too. I’m keeping a low profile to day.

Oh the ignominy of it all!! I was hijacked and be-strawed as well! There will be treats big time to make up for this traumatic week …… MOL

Whee think you look furry fancy in your hats!

Aaaaw yous all look adowable. ☺
Luv and Hugs and Kitty Kisses ♥♥♥
I don’t do hats, so I sort of ignore this day. My human used to wear hats all the time when she was hanging out at rock clubs several nights a week! That was a long time ago… but she still has a lot of the hats.
Our human wears hats all the time! She’s just walking down to Main Street but she acts like it’s the Easter Parade! Says no one would recognize her without one of her hats! We sleep on them. In fact, we’re going to tell her to pull out a few photos of us hanging out on her hats! Thanks!
Oh you are all so cute!
A scorpion sting? Yikes! I hope she is okay!
