Just since last week, the big tree in our front yard released most of its leaves, which now form a blanket of yellow and rust on the still-green lawn. Only bits of grass still poke up between the fallen leaves.
This is the time of year that provides perfect CATmouflage for Dante. He blends in with his surroundings in a way that isn't possible in any other season. If he buried himself in the leaves, he would be all but invisible.
Only the lighter fur in his mane and tip of his tail somewhat delineate his form against the background. Of course, when you see his face, he distinguishes himself from everything else around him. Even when his fur turns him into a Blender Cat, his face, itself, is still outstanding.
I can just hear ladycats swooning all over the world, can't you?
Tell me, Dante -- do you think it's time that daddy raked up all the leaves, or do you like having a cloak of invisibility?
