CAt iN the Hat

We’ll let the cat out of the bag (or in this case hat). To be CANdid we wanted to highlight Dr. Seuss’ cat’s iCANic hat in our display. We were able to fit all but his tail and bowtie inside his hat. We’re hoping the cat keeps to his words when it comes to his hat of cans: “I will hold you up high… but that is not ALL I CAN do!”. Our display should be unCANny to the real thing.  Apologies, we CANsidered there were too many puns… We CAN’t stop.. As they say, when the cat’s away, the mice will play. Happy 2021!
