In the photos, Baskin is sporting a black COVID-19 mask with the phrase, “Hey all you cool cats and kittens,” paying homage to the opening line to most her YouTube videos.
And of course, she was sporting other cat gear!

Just one day after the announcement was made revealing the new star-studded cast of this season’s ‘DWTS’ — Carol was seen entering the studio for rehearsal with a red tiger print shirt!
Apparently, the shirt is a for the animal sanctuary ‘Big Cat Rescue’ and she added an animal-print backpack too. But, if you look real close, Baskin’s shoes have little faces of cats on them! Full-blown cat lady!
On Friday, other celebrities were also seen entering the studio in L.A. including AJ McClean.

According to reports, Carole originally turned down the opportunity to appear on ‘Dancing With The Stars’ blaming her lack of experience on the dance floor.
But, her daughter, who also works as the President of her animal sanctuary urged her to give it a chance.
“I want people to see what a fun and kind person my mom really is,” daughter Jamie wrote.
After deciding to go for it, Carole promised to give it her all, saying, “I’m going to put my heart and soul into winning the Mirror Ball because the longer I can stay on the show, the more the plight of big cats will be kept in the public eye.”
She continued, “I’m hoping that seeing me go way out of my comfort zone will encourage everyone to call their Senators and House members in support of our bill at BigCatAct.com.”
BTW — ‘Tiger King’ star Joe Exotic continues to sit in a prison cell after being charged with a murder for hire plot involving Baskin and several other animal cruelty crimes.
This season’s ‘DWTS’ starts on September 14 on ABC, and will feature Carole Baskin along with Kaitlyn Bristowe, Nelly, Nev Shulman, Charles Oakley, Vernon Davis, Jesse Metcalfe, Anne Heche, Johnny Weir, Skai Jackson, and ‘Real’ host Jeannie Mai.
