It's a relatively warm, and very sunny late October day. I put Dante in his sailor shirt for a little something different. Doesn't he look so mancatly in his stripes of blue and white?

In the first shots, he is backlit by the sun, so his aura is shining all around him. Due to this, in the third picture, Dante's lynx tips are also highly visible. He could challenge that pointy-eared Spock any day! Maybe, he's actually part Vulcan mancat instead of Maine Coon! Anything is possible.

Later on Dante moseyed on over to our neighbour's garden to enjoy the waning greenery, sniff out the remaining scent of squirrels who had passed that way, and ultimately to catch some beams from the radiant sun. Then, a sudden breeze blew by to "shiver his timbers". It ruffled his ruff all around him, but a Sailor Mancat is used to handling a bit of a ruff time -- so this is nothing compared to the roughness of the seas.

Dante, the Sailor Mancat takes his responsibilities very seriously as you can see by the expression on his face. He wants everyone to know that it's good to eat spinach, as long as you're not a cat. Every Sailor Mancat likes a fresh piece of fish now and then, just for the "halibut"! Lean protein makes for a lean, mean, fighting machine of a mancat. And Dante fits the bill (except for the "mean" part -- he's really just a pussycat!).

Vulcan Ears!

Having a ruff time!

And for an extra added bonus, on this Mancat Monday, is a very short video of Dante, the Sailor Mancat blowing in the wind.

Mama asks Dante: Whatchya doing?

"The answer my FURiend is blowing in the wind,
The answer is blowing in the wind."
