Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! May you find a pot of gold or a bag of cat food. 

Happy St Pat's Day? Not With Costumes from the Dollar Store!

I usually dress in Haute Couture, and am not a Hot Mess! But in the spirit of those who drink green beer and sing silly ditties about leprechauns, I agreed to share these silly photos with the rest of The Tabby Cat Club, as you may also be coerced into wearing something embarrassing today, too!

So here I am, wearing a bow tie as a hat! HaHaMeow! And that curly thing next to me, with the Shamrock on it? It's a WIG!!

Yes, I wear wigs, but this one could be used as a bathroom scrubber--then I'd never have to wear it again! Although...I think that little curl right in the middle of my forehead is kinda cute! But you can tell that even the 'jewelry' that adorned me wasn't enough to make me smile!

And just in case you kitties didn't know... Move over, Saint Patrick! It's St Gertrude's Day, too! She is the patron saint of cats and gardens...something we all love! 

  🌼 =^..^=  

Here's hoping all you tabby cats have a day filled with the "Wearin' o' the Green" ...Catnip that is! 

Hello From the Shamrock Patch

Happy St. Patrick's Day from Ducky and Angel Derby!

Phew, I did it!!!!

May your troubles be less
and your blessings be more

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day Everybody.....
Remember today to wear something GREEN or else you might get pinched!
That's right - it was something my Mom was told when she was a little girl so she's ALWAYS made sure to wear something green on St. Pat's Day.  
Why is that a tradition?   Here's what we found out courtesy of Mr. Google!
"Forgot to wear green on St. Patty’s Day? Don’t be surprised if you get pinched. No surprise, it’s an entirely American tradition that probably started in the early 1700s. St. Patrick’s revelers thought wearing green made one invisible to leprechauns, fairy creatures who would pinch anyone they could see (anyone not wearing green). People began pinching those who didn’t wear green as a reminder that leprechauns would sneak up and pinch green-abstainers."
I don't want to get pinched so I'm not taking any chances!
AND neither is my little brother Teddy!
Before you go, how about a piece of lucky Irish cake???  Or just one bowl of good old Irish stew?

Have a fabulous Saint Patrick's Day everybody.........
From Sammy O'Kimmell and his brother Teddy O'Kimmell

Lá fhéile Pádraig sona dhuit!

I made a scrapbook page to celebrate St. Paddy's Day. Many years ago Scylla and Socks got to go on an adventure in Ireland for St. Patrick's Day. Scylla wanted to share some photographs they took on that trip.

(Scylla meowing) MoMo took this picture of me and Charybdis when we were in Ireland. We were riding in a St. Paddy's day parade.

And here is a picture Asta took of all of us. Socks looks huge. It is nice to remember happier times when Socks was here. If you want a blast from the past you can read about out trip here.

Hope everyone has a Happy St. Patrick's Day. ~Scylla & Chimera from ATCAD

Happy Dr. Seuss Day!

 Prancie here, I am posing with my favorite Dr. Seuss character, the Grinch.

 Joanie  here, I is posing as The Cat in the Hat.


Today is not only Dr. Seuss' birthday but also Read Across America Day, so I sure hope everyone will take a few minutes out of their day to read something fun to their cat(s).

I wrote a poem to celebrate (and for Angel Sammy's Thoroughly Poetic Thursday).

The Lorax

Today is a day to celebrate reading.
It’s not something I do, but I hear it is pleasing.
It is known as Read Across American Day
And celebrates author, Dr. Seuss’, birthday.
I never met him but heard he wrote good books.
I think one was maybe something for cooks.
That book was called, Green Eggs and Ham,
And features a character named, Sam-I-Am.
He even wrote about a cat wearing a hat.
Can you imagine something as silly as that?
Today I am a dressed as a guy called a Lorax.
He seems to be a well-known environmentalist.
“I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees.”
Is a famous quote by this guy and now me.
For this reading day, the Lorax I’ll be
Instead of ginger tabby, Cooper Murphy.
If you can, go read a book and hug a tree.
You’ll feel great mentally and physically!

I even dressed for the part.

Best of all, my big brother, Mauricio, baked a cake in his Cat Scout Bake Shop for me to bring and share with you. Enjoy!

Happy Dr Seuss Day Lets Play

Shush, You will and carry the plates
to give me my fill

I will hurry, fast as I can, to help
your belly complete its plan

Timmy Tomcat - Sam I am
Miss Fitz - A Grinch as Only She Can

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

Dr. Seuss Day!

One of my favorite days of the year!!

Thank you Dr. Seuss for all the years of wonderful fun books!!

Dr. Seuss Day!

This is a favorite day of mine
Full of fun for cat, dog or goose
Why you ask, well I'll tell you now
Because we celebrate Dr. Seuss!

Sammy and Ted
Two brothers are we
One's at the Bridge and the other is ME!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss
