        So, I see Jingle and Flatcap are going head to head.

          I like Jingle's real-cat cat. It would mean a person wouldn't have to shop for a hat or spend on it. The person is having to maintain the cat anyway, and why shouldn't the cat be making itself useful?

          The job as hat should appeal to many cats. I once had a cat who absolutely loved to sleep on my head. If I lay down to sleep, the cat lay on the pillow resting precisely on my head.

          And it would probably never be in danger of blowing off your head. I note how the cat's paws/claws seem rather firmly anchored on the human head... might not always be ultra-comfy for the human but at least that cat is trying hard to stay put.

            Many years ago I had a wonderful cat, Thud, who slept draped across my head. I still miss that cat.

              Thud is a great name for a cat. Wish I'd thought of it for the cat who loved to land with a thud on my bed every morning. She'd perch on a high dresser several feet away from the bed and make a leap onto my bed. She realized that she'd land with so much impact that I'd have to wake up. And feed her.

                    Those are neat-looking hats. And hats are important! I've often heard that if your head is cold, your entire body will get colder faster. And hats keep our heads dry if its raining or snowing.

                    They can be hot though. For years I had a wide-brimmed straw hat for wear on hot days, to keep the sun from beating down, but I found I hardly ever wore it just because it was so hot. But it did a great job of keeping the sun out.

                      When I lived in North Dakota I learned to wear something heavy on my head during the winter..... and something heavy on my feet, my hands, my back, my legs.

                        I doubt that I could have stood North Dakota. Even in Chicago there were days when I wore two pairs of gloves and tied a wool scarf over the bottom half of my face. The boots had to be pretty substantial too.

                          I have been considering a new cap in a summer-weight cloth, but I haven't taken the plunge yet. I know two makers who work with straw for summer caps, so I might give that a try someday. Right now, I have two 8-dart caps in a lightweight wool, but those have leather sweatbands and are lined with cotton, so they do get a little hot.
