THURSDAY IN THE GARDEN WITH DANTE

Thursday's come around again, and today we find Dante in the front garden.  It may be small, but it still requires some care and protection.



Welcome to our front garden.  It is mostly composed of flowering bushes, but the leaves are just starting to come out on them now.


We have to wait until the end of May or June before the flowers come out.  In the meantime, I will sit here and make it look pretty.  I am a good garden ornament after all.


Here I am lying down where mama will put all of her other cat ornaments.  She has lots and lots of them.  She calls this her "Cat Garden" once all of the dead cats are out.  At least I think they're dead 'cause they don't move or anything.


Of course, to me, it is always a cat garden whenever I'm in it.


Speaking of being "in" it, here I am sniffing around under the spirea bushes (they gets pretty pink flowers later on).


I have detected the distinct scent of introoders!  Dis stink is definitely theirs -- I'd know it anywhere.


I'd better stay right here to protect the garden from another invasion.


Hmmm.  It's real comfy here in the garden bed.  I'm getting kinda sleepy.


zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz


Suddenly ... what was that?


Aha!  My arch nemeSIS (or maybe it's my arch nemeBRO -- I really can't tell).  It's loud crunching woke me up, and good thing, too!


It dares to step foots in my garden again!


I lies here in wait for it -- it's coming closer.  I can't move a muscle yet or it will know that I'm here.


Oh dang!  It's escaping.  Well, at least I got rid of it anyway.  If I hadn't been here it would have danced all over the garden bed spreading it's noxious smell from one end to the other.


Now, let's see.  Where was I before I was so rudely interrupted?

Dante you are doing a great job protecting the garden from those evil introoders! The nerve of that squirrel to come in while you are laying there...

You are a very good garden protector! And I love that you are fooling that intruder into thinking you are not there!

we are amazed at how still you were with that squirrel thingy so close. Bingley is like you, but Darcy would have rushed it. You make a lovely garden cat ornament. Love Darcy and Bingley

You do a great job of keeping an eye on everything in the garden Dante! And you look so cute sleeping there. And of course, the squirrels must come taunt you - they are kinda rude!

We are very envious of you getting to lay in the sun, in leaves and dirt! Oh well, we found lots of sun today too! Hey, we have lots of dead cats in our garden too. Mewmie loves to shop at Marshalls and TJ Maxx for garden cats!
