Inside Buddy Foster's World

It Isn’t Easy Being Green

You may think that the life of an adored, pampered kitty is a bowl of catnip but, to reiterate today’s title,  it isn’t easy being green.

There is apparently a day each year  called St. Patrick’s Day, and the  purpose of this day is to gather whatever items of apparel of the colour green one has stowed away, dress, drape or derange the household pets with them, and then take photos to be shared on the internet.


On Halloween I posted a rant against pets in costumes on this blog but Mommy did not take me seriously. She has since festooned me with ribbons at Christmas  and encouraged a Dressophile Your Cat contest. (Although that was fun, wasn’t it?)

I have discovered that Beau and Casey’s family also seem to enjoy St. Patrick’s Day. Whether or not Beau and Casey share this sentiment is questionable.


Does Beau looked impressed?



Is Casey amused?


Do I look like a happy catter?



Okay. I admit, this is gorgeous.

I have an announcement.

I, Buddy Foster, proclaim that from this day on, whenever St. Patrick’s day is celebrated for people, cats shall have a special day called  Catrick’s Day. On this day any cat who is subjected to green attire shall be given extra treats and shall be allowed to sit, walk or sleep on whichever piece of furniture they wish.

Mommy has agreed and let’s hope that Beau’s and Casey’s people do, as well.

Cats of the world, demand your special day!

    Buddy, you are such a gorgeous cat, especially with all your Catrick’s Day finery!

    Here’s to Catrick’s Day! Loki & River (Buddy’s Doppawgänger) definitely approve. And Buddy’s tartan looks smashing with those green eyes.


I'd love to hear what you think of this post.
