Halloween Cats in Hats!

October 20, 2010

I don’t think we’ve mentioned lately how much our kitties love wearing hats!  :-)

If you don’t believe us, just look at these happy faces from previous Halloweens when all three of them posed in their favorite witch hat!

See. Don’t they look like they’re having fun?

(We’re both animal lovers so we want to assure you that there is never any cruel treatment to our little furkids to get these photos.  Please don’t call the authorities on us.)

Since we no longer host costume parties or have little kiddos to dress up, we sisters just get a kick out of showing off our little furkids in their Halloween costumes, their Christmas outfits, and their New Years Eve hats.  We actually don’t need much of an occasion in order to torment them with photo shoots.

No, we aren’t crazy cat ladies (yet)!  I know we aren’t the only ones who like dressing up our pets. I was in Petco today and couldn’t believe all the cute outfits for little doggies!

Does your pet have his/her Halloween costume yet? If so, we would LOVE to see them!

Just for the pure fun of it, we thought we would have a little Parade of Pet Costumes here on BigSisLilSis for Halloween. And this parade isn’t limited to just kitties; it’s open to all pets: dogs, bunnies, guinea pigs, birds, reptiles…you name it.  We want to see it!  Cats in Hats, Masquerading Mutts, Doggies in Dresses, Incognito Iguanas…you get the idea!

If you want to join in on the fun, just snap a photo of your pet in their hat or costume and email it to either BigSis (BigSis at BigSisLilSis dot com) or LilSis (LilSis at BigSisLilSis dot com) by Thursday, October 28th and don’t forget to mention your pet’s name.

We’ll post the parade here on Halloween, Sunday, October 31st!  :-)


Cats in Hats: Christmas ‘Caturday’

December 19, 2009

Today, I’m sharing with you one of my favorite TomTom Santa photos. I did publish this one last year, but just in case you missed it, here it is again. Doesn’t he look festive?

BigSis still hasn’t been able to convince her two little furkids to pose in their new Christmas outfit she bought for them this year.  Since there’s only one December ‘Caturday’ left this month, I thought it might be fun to invite our readers to share any Christmas photos of their kitties dressed up for the holidays.

If you have a photo that you’d like to share and would love to see posted on our final December ‘Caturday’ next Saturday, just send it to me as an attachment in an email to lilsis at bigsislilsis dot com. Make sure the photo is already resized to no larger than 450 x 340. I know this isn’t much notice, but if I have the photos by Wednesday, December 23rd, I’ll promise to have them up on Saturday the 26th!

Come on…it’ll be fun. Don’t tell me that BigSis and I are the only ones who dress up their furkids in Santa Hats and Reindeer Antlers! :-)


Caturday Christmas Cat Memories

December 12, 2009


My little 20 pound Warren Bitey…what a funny cat he was.  Lots of people thought he was mean, but he really wasn’t.  He was actually very sweet, but insecure and fearful, which he sometimes showed as aggression in scary situations.  When he was a kitten, he was really a biter but we worked through that with the Tellington T-Touch.


He’s been gone for a year and a half now, but I think about him a lot.  We were buddies for almost 17 years, and I miss him.  One of my favorite memories of Warrie was the Christmas when he was my Christmas card cover boy.  No kitty could wear a Santa hat like Warrie.  I need a kleenex now.



December ‘Caturday’ with Santa TomTom

December 5, 2009

How ’bout we kick off this month’s series of ‘Caturdays’ with a early Merry Christmas wish from TomTom? Can you tell how much he loves his new Santa Hat and scarf?

"I better have a nice present under the tree after being put through this!"

Here’s what happened after the photo shoot was over.

Hopefully, we’ll get to see some photos of BigSis’ little furkids in their Christmas hats since they wouldn’t cooperate at Halloween!  :-)


Our Chicken Hat’s Gone Cheezy!

November 1, 2009

So, I thought our Chicken Hat Fashion Show was unique to our little family of kitty pies.  Remember when we tormented featured the furkids in the cutest-ever chicken hat?

Now, I find out that the Cheezburger cats are working the chicken hat too!  ^..^  I guess we started a trend!  I swear we were first!

As cute as our cats are, they don’t seem to enjoy modeling as much as the Cheezburger cat does.  Maybe modeling school would help?


Cats in Hats for Halloween

October 31, 2009

Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween from TomTom

Happy Halloween from TomTom

When I saw this little witch hat at Petco, I couldn’t resist buying it for TomTom. Can you tell how much he loves it? :-)

This is actually the only photo I was able to get with his eyes open. He gets so humiliated when I put a hat on him that he won’t even look at me! It’s probably a combination of humiliation and anger. (He’s probably sitting here secretly plotting how he’s going to get back at me for making him do this.)

If you’ve been reading us for a little while, you know that both BigSis and I can’t resist the temptation to stick little hats on our Furkids! We just have a little thing about “Cats in Hats”! :-)

Since BigSis’ furkids didn’t want to cooperate this year when she brought out the pirate hat, I decided to repost their photos from last Halloween when they were both witches.

I love the witch hat with braids! It looks great on Gaby!

And it looks cute on Ashy too!

We hope everyone has a Happy and Safe Halloween! Don’t forget to set your clocks back an hour at midnight tonight!


Cats in Hats Plus 2 for Fun

February 28, 2009

Happy Caturday!  Thanks to ICanHasCheezburger, we can start our weekend with a laugh or two!  You KNOW by now how much I love me some Cats in Hats:










These two kitty pies aren’t in hats, but they crack me up…look at their cute little expressive faces.



Enjoy your weekend, friends!


Cats in Hats: Happy New Year

January 5, 2009

So, you want more Cats In Hats, Big Sis? Here’s a

Happy New Year Wish from TomTom!






Cats in Hats: Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

December 14, 2008

Rudolph, the red-nosed Reindeer

had a very shiny nose.

And if you ever saw him,

You would even say it glows…

Okay, maybe his nose doesn’t glow, but he sure is CUTE! I should have put a red nose on him!

This was my warning that the ‘photo shoot’ was OVER!

One more photo and Rudolph might BITE!



Cats in Hats: Santa Claus is Coming to Town

December 1, 2008

TomTom isn't looking too festive!

“Oh, You better watch out,

You better not cry,

You better not pout,

I’m telling you why;

Santa Claus is coming to Town!”

Doesn’t TomTom look like he’s in the mood to sing Christmas carols? Nope, I didn’t think so…He better get in the Christmas spirit, though, because he’s got more Christmas hats to model for us!

BigSis, we can’t wait to see Gaby & AshyPoo in their festive hats!
