It’s “Take Your Cat to Work Day!”

Monday, June 22nd, 2020

Hi everyone!

It’s Monday again (Booooo!), so I thought I’d write a post that is a bit more fun today!

Today is 22nd June, so that can only mean one thing! It’s National Take Your Cat to Work Day!

I’m not quite sure where this “National Day” came from, but it sounds like my kind of day!

I’m a big fan of Ty cats (Beanie Babies, Beanie Boos, Classic, you name it!) and seem to have a growing collection of them. Here’s my latest little cutie who “just needed a home”…

Little Zip here is helping me out with the website today!

Interestingly, Zip has had four different facelifts in her lifetime! This is the latest, and most common, version with white paws. The very first Zip had a white face and magenta whiskers. This was followed by another white face version with pink whiskers. Later, she was changed to an all black cat, then Ty finally settled on the version pictured above with the white paws. The earliest magenta version is the one most sought after by collectors.

Pictured below is a small selection from my Beanie cats collection (from the right, Jaden, Kiki, Peachy, Zip, Kiki (Mini Boo), Nip and Mambo). I have more cats in my collection, but sadly due to lockdown and them being in a different location at the moment, I’m going to have to wait a little while longer to reunite them all!

Does anyone else have a specific type of Beanie they prefer to collect? It could be a kind of animal, or maybe Beanie bears, or even a specific tag generation you have a preference for? Leave a comment below!

    I prefer teeny tys, although I have a soft spot for the little attic treasure with a little Mac and hat!

    I just like collecting the odd ones, or the ones that pique my interest. For instance, The End Bear is oddly sobering and joyless for a beanie baby. I also keep a look out for the dragon beanie babies and the bird ones, as those are also pretty cool.
