On March 19, 2012, I caught the feral tabby boy who'd been hanging around the yard for months in my drop trap. On March 20th, I transported him to All About Animals Rescue, for neutering and a rabies shot. While in line with other TNR people, I told them that I'd named him Patrick O'Malley, because of his green eyes, and fur colors that matched a freshly poured pint of Guinness Stout. Everyone assumed it was also because St. Patrick's Day had just been celebrated, but we'd been called him Patty O' for a while by then.

Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day!
