DANTE: LION ON THE GREEN
There's nothing like the sight of bright red fur against the deep green of the grass! It's a sight that will never cease to warm my heart. Even before Dante, I had another piece of fine feline red fluff named Tommy, and my best memories of him are when he was roaming around in the back yard, his red coat visible amongst the greenery, at only a glance.
We reseeded our lawn last year, and it has grown well in some spots and not in others, so it's overall appearance is rather scruffy and untamed. The cats love the long grass, though, as it helps them to feel like the lions they are, maneuveuring through the tall stalks of the jungle. It gives them more camouflage, although Dante tends to be a beacon of bright light from any vantagepoint.
So here's my Dante lion, lying on the green for all to see!
