FRONTIER FRIDAY: DANTE IN THE OUTBACK!
Today is Friday, and Dante is busy in the "outback" -- out in our back yard, that is!
It does indeed appear to be a wilderness of untamed flora. I'll make no excuses for it as I happen to like it that way (up to a point). Once the kitties are knee deep in tall grasses, it's good to whack it down to a reasonable size again.
Anyway, Dante loves his hinterland -- he has hinted as much. Dante, himself, is picturesque against the woodiness and sprouting vegetation. It is home, not only to himself and his two furblings, but to a myriad of wildlife.
Witness the third-to-last picture where Dante is hunkered down attempting to camouflage himself against the evil eyes of the malevolent squirrel. The two lock gazes, but Dante is still in the face of such villainy, and the moment passes. The sniper squirrel does a quick hit-and-run on a peanut and is gone in a flash of furry fleet feet.
In the end, Dante stands tall and unashamed, and lives to fight another day.
