Cats Wearing Fruit On Their Heads

Once we decided that we needed a Mascot for International Scurvy Awareness Day, we thought long and hard about what sort of mascot it should be. We quickly ran through and eliminated all of the obvious choices:

  • A friendly guy in a giant Lime costume
  • A friendly guy in a giant Lemon costume
  • A friendly guy in a giant Orange costume
  • Basically the entire "Fruit of the Loom" logo lineup

In the end though, the answer to our search for a mascot was quick and irrefutable:

Cats with Citrus on their heads.

Think about it - When was the last time you saw a cat with Scurvy? We're willing to bet that the answer to that question is "Never". So for that reason, and because seafarers afflicted with Scurvy were known as "Scurvy Dogs", we have decided that our mascot will be the Scurvy-Free Cat.

So if you have a cat, why not give them the gift of biodegradable head gear and Email Us a picture them wearing it so we can add it to gallery?
