MOVEMBER MANCAT MOUSTACHE MONDAY!


Movember is a movement, started by men in Australia, to grow moustaches during the month of November to help bring awareness to cancers that particularly affect men.  This movement has grown worldwide.  You can read more about it 'HERE'.

The 'Mo' (slang for moustache) and November come together each year for Movember. 

The funds raised through Movember’s US campaign benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) and LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

We were turned onto the Movember movement by Milo and Alfie of "The Cat's Meow", who themselves sported moustaches on their November 1st post.

Domino begged her brothers, Dante and Dylan to step up, as the manly mancats they are, and show solidarity with her boyfriend Milo and his brother, Alfie -- and more importantly, to support the entire Movember movement by spreading the word.

Dante and Dylan are quite moved by Domino's selfless request and have grown magnificent moustaches -- beyond the call of duty.  Of course, Dante is quite floofy already, so shaping some of his luscious furs into a moustache posed no problem.  Dylan's fur is also quite lush, although much shorter, and so his moustache is consequently more trim.

Here's Dante's furry contribution to Movember:

With his suPURR long handlebar moustache, Dante reminded me of a rather hirsuite Looney Toons character.


That Yosemite Sam's a real pistol, isn't he?
Dante just looks harried (or is that HAIRied?)!


And here's Dylan with mo' 'MO':

Dylan's blond moustache reminded me of a very famous outlaw ...


... or at least the hunky Robert Redford who played Sundance in the flick.

We're hoping that you'll remember Movember this year and efurry year, with Dante and Dylan to remind you that you can be just as handsome as they are.  Even if you just pay 'lip service' to the idea and help to increase awareness of men's cancers, you've done a good deed.

How FURtile is your upper lip?  Sorry, ladies -- we didn't mean you!

Dante and Dylan have purrfect moustaches! Dante is way more handsome than Yosemite Sam...but I think Robert Redford is giving Dylan a run for it!!!! Of course Dylan is more handsome to all of us lady cats...mom is still thinking about it!

Wendy, the snake came from our local Global Pet Foods store. Nicki seems to be the only one who will play with. Go figure. Good thing it was only $5. LOL.
