Patriotic Pets Celebrate Flag Day

Patriotic cat is not amused (but I am).

Happy Flag Day! Check out these patriotic pets posing in all their red, white, and blue glory. And really, what better way to celebrate America than putting funny hats on animals?

I can’t say I recommend trying all of these at home; I’m pretty sure my cat would try to scratch my eyeballs out if I attempted to put a little hat on him.

    This cat is very clearly patriotic and adores Flag Day. Also very clear is the fact that he is going to kill the photographer in about 15 seconds.
