These Cats and Dogs Have All the St. Patrick’s Day #Inspo You Need

If you’re lucky, the pet photo you post on Instagram on St. Patrick’s Day will be a pot of pure gold under the proverbial rainbow.

But why leave such an important moment to chance? We scoured Instagram for ten magically delicious dogs and cats, donning seriously easy-to-steal ideas for the greenest day on the calendar (remember to wear some, too, or you’ll get pinched!)

From a ‘Pet-Me-I’m-Irish’ cat hoodie to a simple pose next to a box of Lucky Charms, any of these looks will make your followers totally green with envy — and isn’t that what social media is all about?
