It's Thursday, and Dante is once again guarding the front garden.  Instead of patrolling out in the open, he has decided to check things out under cover -- or as Dante likes to call it "InCATnito" (incognito, as it purrtains to cats).  This way, any intruders will surely be caught off guard, and he'll have the upper paw.

"Wen I'm on dooty, I keeps mai eyes wide open!"

"Sumtimes I catmouflage maiself behine wun of the big pots."

"Sumtimes, I slips down low so as to go undetecktid."

"Here, I am tucking maiself in-between da big pots, so no wun kin see me."

"Well, efurrywun but mama, dat is!  She's hidin', too, behine da flowahs on da porch."

"Finally, wunce efurryfing is checked out an' da coast is cleer, I kin show you wot's new in mai garden."

"Kin you see anyfing diffurent?"

"Here dey are -- da SPYrea bushes is bloomin'!  Dey has bootiful pink flowahs  all summah long."

"O noes!  Despite all mai covert manoofurs, I missed dis introodah!"

"He's rite in dere behine da garden cats an' Kitty Buddha.  Kin you see who it is?"

"Yes, is jus' Dylan.  He wuz tryin' ta help by spyin' fru da spyreas."

"I gess I'm not da only wun who's inCATnito!  I has a whole family of spies!"

Until next time, it's Dante -- ofur and out!

Dante you take such great care of your garden! And we love when you are behind the pot - we can tell you were really checking something out hard from that spot - but we are sure you took care of it if it was necessary!

Dante, you're great at going incatnito! And we see you've been teaching Dylan the spying game, too. :-)

Well done! Your garden is gorgeous, love the spirea!

Uh, Dante, I think you may need to practice your spying if you mistook Dylan for an intruder!
