User Topic: how do I get my cat to wear a Santa hat?

Update: I got it! Picture, as promised, on page 2.


I figure this is more of a fun topic than an Off Topic, although it is a serious question.

I bought a tiny Santa hat off eBay that I want to put on one of my cats and then take a picture of her in it for my Christmas card.

(Yes, all right, YES, I am *that woman* who is such a crazy cat lady that she wants to put a Santa hat on a pet. Yes.)

So, anyone ever have luck doing this with a cat? It should arrive in the mail by Tuesday; I'm thinking I should try to put it on her early and often to get her used to it before the picture.

Anyone willing to answer, who doesn't think I'm totally insane?

ETA: If it works out, the caption is totally going to be Santa Claws Is Coming to Town.

I suggest xanax for at least one of you.

Maybe slip it on when the cat is sleeping?

Have you ever seen a ticked off Betsy Ross? I have. One of my sisters dresses up her cat (who is not amused).

I think it depends on the cat I have a little black cat that if I tried to put a hat on well it wouldn't be pretty she would kill me BUT I have a gorgeous all white ragdoll male cat that I put reindeer antlers on for pictures and he was fine about it

Ok, in all seriousness...

Get a second set of hands. One person places the hat, the other quickly snaps pictures. Rinse and repeat until you get a usable shot.

Plan B: get a great picture of your hat and Photoshop the hat in place.

This is hysterical. I love it.

I have thought about pics of my greys on a holiday card with the inscription, 'Have a grey-t holiday season!' but my family mocks me so I've never done it.

You have inspired me .

I have an evil one eyed, one eared cat that is Satan in a fur coat. I got a free wizard hat for him one year at Pet Food Center and managed to get it on him and get his pic taken by having someone else hold him while I snapped as quickly as I could. It's an awesome pic!

AN, You should totally do it!

welcome14, Do you still have the pic? Any chance you'll share the cuteness with us?

Do it, AN!!!

hb, you could try to put it on the cat while the cat is asleep, then wake the cat a LITTLE and try to get a pic. Other than that, photoshop is probably your best option.

I love all the suggestions. I was thinking Photoshop at first, but I don't know how to use it.

AN---do it! If mine turns out, I will post a pic here. You should too.

And believe me---everyone mocks me too. Believe me.

I should hurry up if I want to do it for Hanukkah since Hanukkah is on Thanksgiving this year .

But maybe I'll just do it between Hanukkah and Christmas for a Season's Greetings type of thing.

This is my beloved Kraken. I can't take credit for dressing her, it was a 3 person mission to outfit her to match her nickname and I was not involved.
