Just in time for St Patrick’s day, Paddy O’Possum is stopping by for a pint, with his friends, Brunswick and Stewie. Paddy is a good natured fellow with a bit of an identity crisis; he is often mistaken for a rat.

That’s o.k., Paddy, we love you anyway & if it makes you feel any better, my cats are scared of you & your friends. So have fun, enjoy the all-you-can-eat cat chow on the deck & please watch out for cars. Erin go bragh, Paddy!! Ireland forever!!
