It's the little things...

like a little hat for your cat!
I picked up this gem of a prop when Ivan and Elycia were out a few weekends ago at the junk store. Upon finding it I immediately knew one of my kitties would have to wear it. Finally I remembered to take it out of the car a few days ago and here we are now!

Doctor Octopus is the best sport. He's almost always willing to put on a silly outfit for me and pose, which I obviously take advantage of. This little brat purred the whole time the hat and sweater were on. He's so precious!

  1. Sweet. My cat would NOT have tolerated such indignity; she would have stalked off and ignored me until dinnertime.

  3. Amazing! My cat Monty doesn't have much hair on his ears and they are forever getting sunburnt. I always suggested that we needed to get him a boater - I never knew they actually existed. Love it.

  8. Oh Kaylah! This has made my day! I just don't know how you manage it! My kitty Olive would not have that on for two seconds. The Doctor looks very dashing indeed! All he needs is a little row boat and a lovely Spring afternoon.

  11. Kaylah,

    Your cat is simply adorable!!!!! I just adopted two kitties the other day...my Queen of the house Kitty was not very happy needless to say. I think that she will get over it. I will have to share some pics soon.

  22. I am pretty sure this just made my day!!!!! And how fabulous is your cats name? LOVE IT! Seriously though, you are so lucky your cats enjoy hats...I got mine a pirate hat last year and I'm pretty sure I got dirty looks from him for a month after Halloween!

  23. He is loving it! I can't stop laughing. I just love seeing your cats and their little antics.

  24. I. AM. DYING.
    You're so lucky to have a complacent cat to let you do silly things like that. Maybe once I have four I'll have better odds of having an easygoing kitty. I CANNOT imagine Scarlett or Jasper letting me do this.
    BUT IT'S SO FREAKING DARLING. I love the Doc.

  44. You need to start adding him to your "What I Wore..." posts. Even give him his own category like "Catfit of the Day". ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  45. That's really cute - he looks kind of Amish!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Amazing! One of my cats loves when I dress him up (the best outfit being one of those silly tuxedo t-shirts), but I don't think he'd tolerate a hat. Perhaps it's time to find out. :)

    ReplyDelete

  55. I agree with Iris, he needs his own, "what I wore..." or they do. :) he is so cute, I wouldn't be able to get either of my cats to dress up, but the doctor sure looks dashing.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oh my gosh!!! That is the freaking cutest thing I have ever seen!

  57. OMG Kaylah - You have to watch these on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/user/klaatu42#p/c/040AC7C9087AC9CD/2/7ltcWcwnPfY
    You would love these little videos, he makes the animals talk and it is sooo funny! This is not a plug for anything, I just thought of you when I was watching these cuz his cat Jupiter is soo funny. He says that if you have an animal that moves it's mouth he would make a video with your footage too, I want to do that with my kitties too.

  58. K, this is the best thing ever. He's a natural born model!

  59. ohhh if only the hat had little holes for his ears to poke out!

    ReplyDelete
  60. He is a sturdy fellow to put up with such a thing!! But he does look rather darling!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  61. this is kind of random but i thought of you and Brooke(apriltwoeighty) today.

    my cat, orea, has sensitive skin so i tried a new unscented natural liter called "worlds best cat litter". its THE BEST LITTER EVER!
    it is made of corn and has an odd smell but it is definitely not as strong of a smell as regular liter and no real dust. it IS however a little pricey but yaknow, its our kitties. they are worth it.
    i just wanted to recommend it to you from one cat lady to another.
