THURSDAY IN THE GARDEN WITH DANTE: ORANGE LIKE CLOCKWORK


It's Thursday, and just like clockwork, Dante is on patrol duty in the garden.

He walks along the edge of the garden bed and closely inspects every inch for anything untoward.

Today, Dante is wearing his safety vest, but he thinks it's a "Mussely Shirt".  We let him believe that because it makes him feel more powerful -- just look at those arm muscles!

Dante's such a hard worker -- he keeps his nose to the ground -- and his tail in the air.  All the better to see those floofy butt cheeks of his!

Butt Dante is not one to stand on ceremony.  He is very earnest when he's on duty, and not purrone to dalliances -- though he's quite fond of dahlias.   Too bad there aren't any in the garden -- oh well, maybe next year! 

"Mama gotted me dis mussely shirt", says Dante.

"Is also gud fur catmouflaging maiself, doan yoo fink?"

"It helps me blend rite into da backgrownd ...

... cuz i is orinj an' da mussely shirt is, too!"

Suddenly, there's a suspicious sound, and Dante's immediately on the alert!


But now the sound is coming from another direction, and Dante just can't believe what he's seeing!  


"Is a orinj birdie in catmouflage, jus' like me!", exclaims Dante.


"Orinj yoo glad i'm warin' mai orinj mussely shirt?  It lets me see efurryfing -- even fevvers -- that is orinj!"


Dante must agree wholeheartedly with Alfie (Milo's brother) that orange is indeed the best colour of all.


"Itz like lukin' at da werld fru orinj-coloured gwasses.  An' dat's da bestest catmouflage of all!"

The garden is safe and secure once again, no doubt due to Dante's safety vest (er, mussely shirt) or at least his vested interest in safety.

Dante, Felix is thinking he needs an Orinj mussely shirt. Although you certainly fill it out better than he would...Felix is more a "marathon runner body" than rassler!
