He was out on the front patio wearing his tiger shirt for a photoshoot and he stopped to pose beside the green garden cat. I thought it was a rather interesting juxtaposition and the red shirt and the red flowers were also quite pleasing to my eye ...
... as well as to the 'eye of the tiger' which Dante wore on his back.
Dante was a beautiful cat but he could also be super cute.
Don't you just want to pick him up and cuddle him?
But one should always be mindful that inside every kitty, there still exists ...
Here's one of Dante's hatted pictures; this one from June last year. Generally, he saved his hat photos for the 3-D cat blog along with his brother and sister, but methinks we will now share some of them on this one.
Dante always looked marvelous in just about any hat, but this brown straw fedora with teal band and trim seems to especially suit him. And his white floral bowtie "ties" in just purrfectly, don't you think? Also, being the timely gentlemancat that he was, he is sporting a gold and dark teal Ulysse Nardin watch. Obviously he was a mancat of suPURRb taste in addition to all of his other fabulous qualities!
He is posing with a plant pot shaped like a cat's head (planted with begonias), and embellished only the way 'Jim Shore' (its creator) could do. Dante is emulating the plant pot by holding some begonias, too. He's pretty nicely embellished himself.
This picture was taken in late June of 2010. There was nowhere Dante liked to be more than in the cool grass under the shade of a tree.
In this photo, there was a plant pot of flowers almost immediately in front of him and I managed to capture the colour of those flowers and their leaves as a charming introduction to Dante's beautiful face. It gives the picture a vivid glow.
Dante is still basking in his after-glow and always will!
