Cat and Human Wear Hats for Causes: Blue Bobble Hat and the Pussyhat Project!

Hi all it's Cody!! If there is anything that Mom loves, (keep in mind I said "if there is anything MOM loves), it's HATS! Mom LOVES HATS! In the winter Mom wears a hat nearly every day (inside AND out!!) Mom has loved hats since she was a little girl. She has tons of hats! Of things that Mom collects fashion-wise (and I use the term "fashion" loosely), Mom collects hats, tennis shoes, reading glasses and sunglasses. (Yeah, she's a strange one but you probably already knew that!)

Unfortunately, Mom thinks that because SHE loves hats that I do too. WRONG! I don't! But....when I heard that my furiends over at Basil's Blog were having a blogging tour to raise funds for kitties in need. I had to purrticipate.

The money raised will help kitties at the Burton Joyce Cat Rescue (where most of the kitties at Basil's came from), I told Mom I would be more than happy to purrticipate. You can read the details on Basil's blog right here.

I received my hat from my furiends over at Timmy Tomcat and Mom was chomping at the bit to put it on me.....oh was she excited!! Me? Not so much, but if it helps kitties, then I am all for it!

FROM BASIL'S BLOG: WE'RE RAISING FUNDS BECAUSE IT IS A DONATION DRIVEN RESCUE AND WE LIKE TO HELP WHERE WE CAN.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO SEND A DONATION,

or if you want to be a 
part of the tour
 PURRLEASE CONTACT US AT:

deardrbasil @ gmail . com

And if you live within the Nottinghamshire borders purrlease consider having a look at the cats they have up fur adoption, and aftur meeting us who wouldn't want to adopt a beautiful kitty from there! MOL

'ADOPT DON'T SHOP'


ALL MEW NEED TO DO, IS FEATURE THE BOBBLE HAT* ON YOUR BLOG AND THEN SEND IT ON TO ANOTHER WILLING PURRTICIPCANT.  THE MORE BLOGGERS WHO FEATURE THE HAT THE MORE MONEY WE RAISE FUR THE KITTY RESCUE.






We will be sending the Bobble Hat on to the next kitties on the tour by the end of next week! Hang tight!!!

Now, because I had to wear a hat, Mom decided that she would join me. The next hat is the infamous

PUSSYHAT PROJECT
GLOBAL OUTREACH

The Pussyhat Project was about making a powerful visual statement at the January 21, 2017, 
Women’s March on Washington, D.C.  But there’s a whole lot more to this. At its core, this project is about:

1. Creating a concrete, accessible, thoughtful way for those who cannot attend activism events in person to be heard and represented

2. Developing meaningful, respectful connections among people who care about women’s rights, and

3. Creating a framework for community and personal agency from the local to the national level.

And we have just begun to achieve these goals. Because of the hundreds of thousands of people involved in the Pussyhat Project so far, the Pussyhat has grown into a symbol of support and solidarity for women’s rights around the globe.

Mom wanted to get involved and desperately wanted a Pussyhat to show her support but: 1) Mom can't knit to save her life 2) Mom had no clue where to go to get a hat. Thankfully that dilemma was short-lived! Mom and I were reading our friend Ducky's blog and saw that Ducky's Mama was making Pink Pussyhats!!! Mom immediately contacted her and asked what she had to do to get one. All Mom had to do (that she would do ANYWAY), is make a donation to Planned Parenthood, and then Ducky's Mom would make her a hat and send it to her!! Mom was thrilled!! Here is Mom in her Pussyhat!

Mom rarely lets anyone see her
with no makeup
and she was too lazy to put it on
Hence the sunglasses!

Mom would like to give a HUGE thank you to Ducky and his Mama for this most pawesome hat!!! Mom and I LOVE it!!!

She was having a serious talk with him while wearing the hat and he said "It's hard to take you seriously when you are standing here talking in that hat." MOL!

  28. Both of those hats are fantastic and so are their causes. I am not a hat person, but I started donating to Planned Parenthood in "honor" of Mike Pence.

  29. Whoot! What a great way to show off that hat, Cody!! And we think your kitty hat if great too, Caren!


    We thought were supposed to get that hat next?? Hmmm, we wonder when it will show up here...or did our name get misplaced off that list of pawticipants?
