DANTE PREPARED

From August 2014, here's Dante in the front garden.

Dante has planted himself by his favourite weigela bushes which are in their second bloom at this time of year.


And August is the time when Dante typically floofed up to the max in preparation for the winter months.  He always like to be prepared well in advance --  like the good boy scout he was.


"Just in case yoo finds yoorself in the middle of snowhere"  he would say.

DANTE: THE POWER OF PINK

In these pictures from August 2010, Dante was definitely in the 'pink'.

 He never felt better than when he was outdoors in his garden.


And it was a purrfect foil for a creature of his august stature.



Here's to the power of pink!

DANTE ON THE DOUBLE!

More from August 2010, here's Dante X 2!


There's nothing quite like a double dose of Dante, is there?  Bestill my heart.




And, you can always ask for more.

DANTE DELIGHT!

These are pictures of Dante in August 2010.  He is standing underneath the tree in the front yard with the light filtering through the leaves overhead.

There's a definite aura about him. 


It must be his sunny disPAWSition.

DANTE OFF KILTER!

This is Dante in the front yard in July 2010.


 He's wearing his bright orange shirt with black stripes and 'trim'.


"Fanks fur sayin' dat Mama.  I feels very trim wen I'm in it."

Yes Dante, it's quite slimming indeed.


But then, so is his kilt!

DANTE: TIGER BEAT

Here's Dante in the summer of 2010.

He was out on the front patio wearing his tiger shirt for a photoshoot and he stopped to pose beside the green garden cat.  I thought it was a rather interesting juxtaposition and the red shirt and the red flowers were also quite pleasing to my eye ...

... as well as to the 'eye of the tiger' which Dante wore on his back.



Dante was a beautiful cat but he could also be super cute.  


Don't you just want to pick him up and cuddle him?





But one should always be mindful that inside every kitty, there still exists ... 


... the heart of a wild cat!

DANTE IN SUMMARY

Dante's in the front garden in July 2014.

He and the garden cat have both spotted something of supreme interest.


Why, it's summer, of course!
Nothing could 'bee' more interesting that that.

DANTE: INTENTS AND PURRPOSES

From July of 2013, here is Dante for all intents and PURRposes.


 Yes indeed, when Dante had his mind fixed on something he was always very 'intense'.




His attention never strayed from his PURRpose -- whatever is was at the time.



And in this case, his PURRpose was twofold!

DANTE OUT BACK!

These are pictures of Dante in the back yard in July 2015.



Dante is nestled beside his fafurite tree.  He and the tree were besties in, what I call, "the outback".

"Dis furiendship is TREEmendously rewardin'!" Dante was heard to say.


"Is so much fun jus' hangin' around togethah."

DANTE: PATIO REFLECTIONS

These are some pictures taken of Dante on the front patio in July 2016.  They are, in sum, what I call "Patio Reflections" because Dante seems to be deep in reflection.







Then again, purrhaps he was just rather sleepy!

DANTE: CATMOUFLAGED!

In these pictures from July 2014, Dante has gone inCATnito in the garden.

 He is so integrated, that he has actually become part of it ...


... until you go underneath to get a glimpse into his cloistered world.  
Then you can see the true Dante -- a cat who is as beautiful as his surroundings.

He was truly heaven-scent!
