President's Day! - The Dainty Squid

President's Day!

Monday, February 18, 2013

It's President's Day, a kind of silly holiday where the mail doesn't run and I'm left wondering if anyone actually celebrates or if it's just a silly excuse for some folks to get the day off. Well here at The Dainty Squid headquarters we're celebrating in style and by that I mean I dressed Doctor Octopus up as the 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln.
Hope you all have a wonderful Presidents Days, whatever that may entail for you! 
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. Most of his costumes I find on ebay but I made this one from some faux fur from the craft store and a doll hat.

  29. No mail today? Then... what was... I guess I didn't check the mail on Saturday haha. The second photo is hilarious!

  30. I'm pretty sure Presidents Day is an excuse. I didn't have to go to school today, so I'm pretty down with it.

    Though I may not celebrate a day for the leaders of the USA, I will always celebrate a day when a cat is wearing a costume and isn't trying to rip it off. =D

  31. Aww, this has made me want a cat even more! Although no cat I've ever owned has let me dress it up! I did manage to get a photo of my mum's dog in a Santa hat a few years ago but that's the extent of my experience in dressing up animals...

  33. Niiiice! Abraham just had a birthday too :) I celebrated President's Day by dressing up in red, white and blue. I also wore an Obama pin but I did not get the day off work.

  34. That is just so adorable! I need to find one of those for my dog - his name is Abraham Lincoln - we call him Abe, but that would just be perfect!
