The birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel) is March 2.
More than 20 years after Seuss’ death, dozens of his colorful, zany creations are still adored by children and adults today, but maybe none more than The Cat in the Hat.
The mischievous baby sitter is obviously a favorite among felines. So, in celebration of Seuss’ big day, we rounded up 11 kitties getting in the spirit by donning caps just like the literary cat.
If you couldn’t tell by the hat, this pussycat is the sheriff of this here kitchen.
Tama was the feline station master at Kishi Station in Kinokawa, Japan. As part of her very important job, she put on her train cap every day. That alone sounds like a Dr. Seuss story waiting to happen.
This kitty picked a hat they could grow into.
Even “The Cat” of the Internet, Grumpy Cat, isn’t too famous to pay homage to The Cat in the Hat.
It’s hard to be a convincing pirate when your face is so dang adorable.
PUTTING ON THE RITZ
This kitty is using Dr. Seuss’ birthday to workshop her Kentucky Derby looks.
AHEAD OF THE TREND
This hispter cat claims he was wearing hats before it was cool. Way before The Cat in Hat made it a big deal.
This is the tomcat your mom warned you about.
Hats are great accessories for shy kitties.
This feline went for a more literal interpretation of Seuss’ titular cat character.
