Caption This! The Cat in a Hat

This cat is looking sharp in a hat, as it strikes a pose for the camera. What's it thinking?

Patch readers, you're up!

We need your wit, creativity and animal psychic abilities to craft the perfect caption for the next edition of our pet photo caption challenge! 

What's this cat thinking as it shows off its dapper look?

Suggest your caption in the Comments section below. Comments will close at 9 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 5. The winner will be announced Thursday, Dec. 6. 

The author of the winning caption and pet owner will receive a Patch-branded version of the photo, with the caption inserted. 

Congratulations to last week's winner, Joel, with the winning caption to Caption This! Who Says Dogs and Cats Can't Be Friends?

If my mom sees this picture, I'm out of the will.

Have a photo you'd like captioned in future editions? Add it to our collection and your pet will be featured in weeks to come!


  1. Any animal will do. Dogs, cats, horses, lizards, birds, guinea pigs—you name it, we'll take it.
  2. Limit of 4 photos per person (or family), per month. 
  3. Submission is ongoing. Post your photos whenever you have them; the more photos, the better.
