What Doctor Octopus wore // St. Patrick's Day attire

Saturday, March 17, 2012

I am so SO so excited to share these photos with you today. There are only two of them, but sometimes less is more!  I've been planning this for a little while and definitely think this is Doctor Octopus's most hilarious outfit yet. I literally laughed until I cried the first time I put it on him.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hope you're having a fabulous day! Whatever your plans are, be safe!
xoxo

 As always, no kitties were harmed in the making of these photos. Doctor Octopus has no qualms with wearing clothes, is the most patient kitty ever and is always rewarded with lots of treats and snuggles (not that he doesn't get tons of those anyways!)

    1. I made it. I spray painted a black felt doll hat from the craft store and cut the beard out from orange faux fur fabric. :)

  5. Whenever I see these I laugh but at the same time they make me really sad. I can not even explain how much he looks like my kitty that passed away a couple years ago, Enzo. They seriously could have been twin brothers. Same facial markings, same brilliant blue eyes. WE once put him in a rain slicker and hat from a stuffed animal I had. It was the funniest thing ever. My husband and I died laughing as he ran around the house in it. He didn't have the model gene like DR Octopus has. I was going to post pictures of my two kitties that passed, and my puppy that passed away in my "about me" in my blog - I was debating and didn't know if that was too morbid. But I miss those little buggers. Maybe I'll change my page up this weekend and do it up. If I do - I'll leave you a comment so that you can see Enzo!

    Sorry this became a little bit morbid with deceased pets! Happy St Patty's day to you and your pose of 4 legged friends!!
