Meezer St Patrick Monday

Happy St Patrick's Day, my loyal and adoring subjects!

Please enjoy these photographs. Ordinarily, I would never dress as an Irish Dancer but the human gave me two pints of guinness prior to the photoshoot so I was in a surprisingly jovial mood!











Here are some facts about St Patrick:

1. At the age of 16, St Patrick was captured by a rogue band of siamese cats and taken to be a human slave.

2. He was a slave to several generations of siamese royalty, before returning to his family at the age of 6.

3. Legend credits Patrick with banishing snakes from Ireland although facts show that it was actually his pet cat, Paddy who drove out mice, not snakes.

4. Legend also credits St Patrick with teaching the Irish about the concept of the Trinity by showing people the shamrock, a 3-leaved clover.

5. Legend is clearly wrong. St Patrick was actually preaching the benefits of catnip, ensuring he always had a steady supply on hand.

So there you have it - the truth behind the legend of St Patrick.

Have a wonderful day and try not to drink too much guinness!

Ta ta for now

Looking good, Yao-Lin! But I am a little bit disappointed. Because I did not get any Guinness before my photo-shoot. I think I got cheated. I need a new photographer.

Wow, Yao-lin, that's quite an outfit! Terrific Irish Dancer's dress. What was the Guinness like? Our humans aren't fond of it.

A little drop of Guinness makes everything better! You look great in your Irish Dancer dress!

Wow, that Guinness must be potent stuff to have you feeling so happy, Yao-lin!

Is that a DRESS you're wearing, Yao-Lin? I think you must have had more than a bit of ale!

Yao-lin, you look very dashing in your Irish costume!

Thank you for the info. on St. Patrick. My Mum's Grandma & Grandpa came from Ireland to Canada and they have all the facts wrong, thank you for clearing that up for me and my Mum.

Yao-lin I am pleased that you were able to put so many misconceptions to rest.

You look great in that outfit by the way.

You look terrific! It can be good for PR for royalty to dress and participate in the garb and parties like commoners. I think you look great!

Happy St. Patrick's Day. I learned a lot about him from you.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Adan*Michico said...

This is so classic~!!!!! You are very cute~~ Sorry I have to use this word, I know you prefer dashing or great~~ But this outfit is so cute on you~!!!!

Isis said...

While it's a very pretty dress Yao-lin, it's a girlycat dress! Honestly what has your slave done this time? She's messing with your mancatliness as well as dosing you up on Guinness and 'nip! ;)

Monty Q. Kat said...

Hmm...maybe if I give HeBean some Guiness I can try on a new shirt...

Irishcoda said...

Yao-Lin, that is such a beautiful dress! Glad you had a nice St. Patrick's day and thanks for stopping by to leave a comment. Glad to hear your mommy enjoyed our puzzle!

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

Did you wear that dress before or after Baby Mao? Because if it was sloppy seconds well...ewwww!

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Wowie, that's some outfit! You better be careful with that Guinness!

Eric and Flynn said...

It's amazing what a drop of Guinness will do. Just be grateful she didn't give you Carling!

Jimmy Joe said...

Hmmm, yeah, there are funny pictures of my momma after she's had a couple of pints, too, buddy. Quite frankly, I think a kilt might be more your style. But you always look stunningly handsome, of course.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe
