Belated Dress Up Your Pet Day

Yesterday was Dress Up Your Pet Day, and since I haven't attempted to dress up a cat in years (in other words, since a trio of torties took over my life), the holiday passed me by. Then I realized I had the purrfect photo to share from my last non-tortie, Angel Sashi.


Sashi was a classy and dignified older lady who was in my life during the height of the Red Hat Lady craze. That was the inspiration for this photo, which has become a favorite...it lives permanently on my upright piano where I memorialize beloved pets that have crossed the Rainbow Bridge. (Notice the cats in hats on the blanket behind her, too!)

Mudpie gives dressing up a big four paws down. Maybe one day I'll slip a cowgirl hat on her head while she's sleeping...

I love the red hat! Some kitties wear things, and some just don't! You work with what you've got, right?

Sashi wore that hat well!

Sashi looked so cute (but very much a lady). We had a cat, growing up, we could dress in doll clothes. My cats, today, would not tolerate it.

Angel Sashi had style!
Now, I'm envious of that red hat, and will search for hats for Da Boyz...I've asked my mother who both knits and crochets, but she isn't interested in making any cat hats...LOL!

Oh, what a precious and priceless photo this of your sweet Angel Sashi! My grandma was part of the Red Hat Lady craze, and I absolutely love how Sashi wore it. Purrs!

I have a red tribly. I love wearing my hat because it gives the finger to those who think you should be quiet and boring.

How cute! Olive is a big no-no on dressing up too. I've never even tried.
