DANTE: PURRTRAITS OF A MAINE COON










I managed to get some supurrlative pictures of Dante yesterday. He stood in the same spot for quite a long time, but there was a brisk breeze which ruffled his fur from time to time to change it up in a whimsical way.

Also, the blossoms from the crabapple tree in our yard have begun to drop their petals which added yet another ethereal touch to his purrtraits. The petals, like the wind, are fleeting, but it’s precisely that synchronicity which creates something special.

Every once in a while I get a shot of Dante which I consider to be just shy of purrfection. I was fortunate to capture such an image in this photoshoot. I’ll leave it to you, the viewers, to determine which one that may be. You can expand your view by clicking on any of the pictures you find purrticularly “see-worthy”.

When chance allows me to catch a great kitty pic, I always like to use it as my desktop background on my PC for a time. There’s nothing like a hugely “biggified” picture of Dante to brighten your day – except maybe the real thing, which I can admire (and touch) any time I choose. And for this, I am truly grateful.

You are definitely big and furry. I'll bet you need to be brushed a lot like my housemate Missy.

I love seeing Dante's red-furredness... buffeted about by the wind! You can see how his ancestors could weather a n'oreaster!
