The Ballad of the Red Beret

Hola kitties! This post has been hastily put together. Pop installed our new modem today, which of course caused some minor problems. Then TW watched the game. Seems everything comes before The Cat but I'm sure you're wondering about the new red beret.

The Ballad of the Red Beret

The WLF was first formed on Twitter around 2010. "The Whiskas Liberation Front (WLF), known on Twitter as #wlf, is an international collective of socialist cats and sympathetic members of other species (including the odd human and at least one tortoise)." Last week a new #WLF group was formed on Facebook and I was rewarded with an ultra-cool red beret! Our original Mad Hatter is gone—bows head—but life goes on although we still pay homage to her.

Years ago, I axed our Mad Hatter aka the lovely Jessie Janey for a Tupac head scarf rather than a beret cos I was ghetto. Yeah, I know he tied his in the front. This looks so much more revolutionary.

I'm still ghetto but those berets are so cool. I just had to have one and the new Mad Hatter obliged me. I'm honored to wear this beret and to be a member of the WLF.

I was wondering if the #WLF was ever going to migrate to Facebook.

Great to know the #wLF is on FB and Dash is there with them. I hope to see some of them in Twitter where they started off.
