It's Sunday and a little rainy, so Dante's inside posing in repose. He's quite accomplished that way, you know.
For this photoshoot, because it's indoors, I had to use the flash.
Of course, the flash sometimes produces the laser eyes, so this is what we have here. However, I think that is more than offset by the cute upside-down pose, in repose.
I got a comment the other day about not being able to notice Dante's classic tabby markings easily. Well, you certainly can see them in this picture on his head and on his forelegs. Biggify it if you want to see them even better.
Dante actually has the tabby stripes all over his body, of course, but with his fur being as long as it is, you can't see them -- they've all grown out into this massive collection of floof.
I was struck in these pictures by the contrast between the deep red of his top coat, indicated here by his tail and the top of his head, and the pale fur on his underbelly. Dante's breeder told me that he had some red dilute in him.
I love the variation of colour in Dante's fur. Every picture seems to reveal a different combination of fire and cream.
And with that, let's leave Dante off to dream!
