The Legend of the Bobble Hat

The Legend of the Bobble Hat

Stunning Keisha has agreed to be part of the "Wurld-Wide Tour of the Time-Travelling Bobble Hat." This was a complete surprise to us when the hat turned up in our mailbox. We'd thought about signing up for it since it is for charity and then never followed through. TW is like that.

Then the hat arrived in our mailbox. What to do?

Knowing that Parsley & Smoochie from Bionic Basil will donate £2.00 [£1.00.each] to the Burton Joyce Cat Rescue in Nottingham, U.K.—where most of Basil’s gang were adopted—made it an easy decision. We'd play along cos the more places the bobble hat travels, the more money the kitties raise. The Burton Joyce is a donation-driven rescue where every little bit helps.

We’re not sure where we will be sending the bobble hat from here, but I decided to pass the hat around so to speak and let our stuffies wear it. Don't forget to hover over the images to see my reactions.

First fat cat Nicky got to try it.

Then Plush Autumn took a turn.

Finally it was HHGutt's aka Plush CK's turn. Being a real ham, Gutt decided to show both sides of the hat.

He thinks it was made for him but he's gonna have to let TW mail it to the next cat on the list.

If you would like to be a part of this fundraiser, you can let Basil know at deardrbasil at gmail dot com. Once you receive the hat, all you need to do is feature it on your blog, notify Basil and send it to another sucker participating cat. The more bloggers who feature the hat, the more money Bionic Basil will raise for the kitty rescue. If you don't want to feature the hat, or don't have a blog, and would like to send a donation to help the rescue, contact Basil at the above address.

Wearing the bobble hat is not mandatory. Just photographing it and sharing it on your blog will satisfy the requirements. Nonetheless, TW had to try to get it on my head. The first time she tried was a real disaster, as you can see from the lead image. I preferred it as a pillow.

I posed with Gutt in the hat but refused to wear it myself. Cod knows where this hat has been and how many cats have worn it.

This was the best the peeps could do. They nabbed me during yesterday's EZ like Sunday with Pop. Fortunately they gave up before there was any blood shed.

So now that you've seen us all wearing the hat, which of us wears it best? Don't just say me cos I will be taking names. Maybe I should say who wears it second best after yours truly?

Summer at sparklecat.com said...

I wonder if I could get Binga to wear it...

The Menagerie Mom said...

Whew, I'm glad you let the peeps keep their blood, CK. I was afraid for a second there at the end. The hat does look great, though, with all of these lovely models. Of course, you're still the most stunning model of all, CK.

Ouch CK guess you didn't like the hat! I had a blast putting it on Cody lol! catchatwithcarenandcody

Jean Neilson said...

haha I think Fat Cat Nicky wears it best and he has the best expression while wearing it.

Basil gave mom a bobble hat while she was visiting so we will be trying the hat out to. It is for a good cause.

C.K., This is why the Bobble hat fund it's way to your house. You left this comment on our blog (You know, I kinda would like to do this. I’ll get HHGutt to wear the hat and it’ll give me a fun blog post. I’m gonna let Basil know. Getting TW to mail it to the next person might be the hard part), and so our petretary took matters into her own paws and added you to the bottom of the list. Hope you had some fun with it. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

Lesson Learned: Always have plush kitties on hand to do the modeling stuff. Still, you looked...well...stunning in the bobble hat. This is a great cause! Apaws! Apaws!
