The Evolution of the Lion (in slightly screwy chronological order)


I have always loved the "Big Cats" Tigers, Lions....as you can see by these photos I am rather obsessed with Lions headgear, (as well as "Roary" the Detroit Lions mascot who is shown above right, visiting me on my birthday a couple of years ago). Now that I live in Detroit and am a fan of the Detroit Lions, there is nothing I love more than when I run into interesting and fun "Lion" headgear!!

The DOG Lion Mane  by Joy4Pets  (labeled 2017 above), was won on the Pet Blog Lady  blog this past summer! (What is a Dog Lion Mane doing on a CAT blog? LIONS ARE JUST BIG KITTIES!!!) When I entered the give-away, my intent was to win the prize for Dakota to wear. When the Dog Lion Mane arrived I was ECSTATIC that it would fit HUMANS (specifically ME!), as well as Dakota! The quality is AMAZING and yep I have already worn it to a Lions game!
I was waiting to post it on the blog hoping the Detroit Lions would make it to the playoffs  AND have a playoff game at home. While their poor play lately has made it rather unlikely that they will earn a playoff spot, even if they do, there won't be a home game and who could let such a great Lion mane go to waste? Certainly not me! (Dakota is thankful there will be no home game and Cody is thankful the mane is too big for him, but I LOVE it!!!)

  1. Hilarious, Caren! Dakota looks like he wants it OFF. LOL. Yes, we bet Cody was happy it didn't fit him. :-D

    1. MOL!! Thank you! You are right, Dakota was NOT amused! No worries, he didn't have to wear it long at all lol. Cody completely lucked out on this one!

  4. You really dodged a bullet on that one, Cody! And routing for the Detroit Lions isn't much better than routing for the Cleveland Browns, Caren...yuck yuck yuck...

    Have a fabulous day. My best to your wonderful mom. ♥♥♥

  19. Hopefully Dakota's roar is worse than his bite ;)

  20. Finally, the truth is out...EVERYONE secretly wants to be a cat. And I'm not fooled by Dakota's expression, who wouldn't want to walk in the paw prints of a feline for a bit? I must see about having the male human find one of these for our female human.

  28. Now that is a mane and a half! Thankfully us cats are too small for such things.... and if anyone suggest they do a cat size one, they might just have a few more sleepless nights than they do when I bring a mouse home MOL
