Happy Birthday St Gertrude, patron saint of cats!

The 17th of March is celebrated in many countries as St Patrick’s Day (and in even more countries, it’s celebrated as my birthday, haha!) but did you know that it’s also the day of St Gertrude of Nivelles? More to the point, did you know that she is the patron saint of cats?! No wonder I’m a crazy cat lady – I couldn’t help it, being born on St Gertrude’s Day! Now my birthday’s nearly over for this year, but here’s a little present for all you cat-loving readers instead.

Yep, a man who’s prepared to wear a harness around his waist to ensure a cat’s comfort. You’re welcome.
