Dante's out on the back deck with signs of fall all around him. The last of the apples have fallen off the crabapple tree, along with some of its yellowed leaves.
The other sign of fall is Dante's mane. Not only has it thickened up in the front, but it has also increased in volume on the back of his neck.
FUR comparison, here's a shot of Dante from the back just last April. There's very little diffurence between the mane and the rest of Dante's coat from this PURRspective.
Just look at that voluptuous tufting!
It sure isn't 'tuft' to tell that winter isn't far off anymore!
