My Otis—A most fascinating cat!

Poor Otis. He’s a boy cat but I’m guilty of forcing him to model lady cat hats for my own selfish amusement.

So here’s the thing. He has this toy fish that was on its last legs, so instead of throwing it in the trash, I thought I’d combine it with some netting and sequins and other baubles to create a “lady cat fascinator.”

For those of you who don’t really know me—I assure you that I’m not some batshit crazy cat lady—I simply like to have some fun once in a while at the expense of my poor, beloved cat.

I wonder if he’s swearing at me right now in cat-speak?

So without further ado, here is my baby boy, who is thoroughly pissed off and trying to escape me (and his new hat) in every photo.

Honestly, it’s not as outlandish as some of the fascinators I’ve seen women wearing in photos at that Ascot event in England! (haha)

This photo is most representative of the many photos I tried to take of him. He just refused to keep still!

    😂Very amusing! I’ll never forget the time my dad put underwear on our dog for our amusement. He ran around like crazy trying to get them off😊. My aunt had a ragdoll. They are such beautiful cats!

    Sometimes you just have to risk feline anger for amusement! I have three myself and AM on the verge of being that crazy cat lady! I’d take pictures to show off, but you obviously know how well that works!

    Oh my!!! Poor, poor Otis. But it is funny though. And I know he keeps coming back for more. So he can’t hate it that much. Just so darned cute!

    I can understand his annoyance. I would not want to go out wearing a lady’s hat either! A female model would be much nicer and maybe more appreciative!
