DANTE, DANTE, DANTE!
I think Dante needs his own spurread in a magazine or purrhaps his own calendar! Certainly "Playcat" comes to mind -- is there such a publication?
Is there anyone out there who knows how one would proceed with getting Dante published in some manner? I suppose it's something many of us covet, in the Cat Blogosphere. Kitty fame. Or some semblance of it.
Dante does indeed already have modest fame. Like Melvin of the Mouchois blog, Dante has appeared on the popular website "Cute with Chris", many, many times. In fact so many times that some followers are all up in arms because Dante has monopolized so much of Chris Leavins' time, energy and webspace.
Chris even made up the Dante banner, which is the first picture in this current post, and left it up on his website for a couple of weeks in June. He said Dante could just take over his website! (Sounds good, but that statement was laced with sarcasm.)
Beginning on June 17th in purrticular, Chris devoted an entire day to posting pictures of Dante. Never mind that he was pretending he was sick and tired of Dante, and that I was driving him crazy by sending in so many pictures. Chris really loves Dante under all of that comedic arrhythmia!
Chris topped it off with a rant about Dante in his last webcast on June 22nd. So Dante is a little bit famous, indeed more infamous at this point in time.
Dante also appears on the Homepage of his breeder's website at www.lacocoon.com and is listed as one of their Ambassadors, as well. If you look at the Maine Coons on this site, you will note that Dante is not the exception in terms of good looks, in fact, he is the rule.
So while Dante has never been shown at Cat Shows, he is still being shown, but from the comfurt of his own home. He has never been judged, except lovingly.
That love is unCOONditional! And that, after all, is more impawtant than some fleeting thing called FAME!
