This is my kitty Ivy. She is such a trooper! I plopped this mouse hat on her head and she immediately pawed it off. The second time I tried it, she sat there, like a moron and let me take a blurry picture because I was laughing hysterically.

I called my husband up to come help me with it, because I couldn't put the hat on her fast enough to take the picture with a steady hand due to laughter. She finally conceded and kept the hat on for a few seconds longer...enough for me to get this shot.

I won't lie.... I am slightly disappointed at where this placed. :(

At least it got a few laughs... :)

Love this, really great lighting and super cute... the only thing I think I would have liked to see more is the cats eyes, I think that would have really nailed it

Such a funny picture - and great title.

Of course it's best that his face is obscured as he now has no street cred in the neighbourhood - but hey-ho.

Hah. This is excellent. Just saw it now. I can't believe how your cat allowed you to do this! Most that I know would have scratched my hand off. Had to add it as a fav.

Photog notes added! Sorry, I need to get better at doing that when I enter. :)

Thanks for all the kind comments friends! I really thought this one would do better. I guess the people that voted low...don't have cats and don't know how hard it is to photograph a cat in a hat. :)

I want photog notes!!!!! What's the back story here. How'd that shoot go? Or were you taken to the hospital immediately after...????

Brilliant. I'm also dismayed this is didn't finish higher.
