This is Dante in his orange-stripey shirt way back in 2010.

"It's always bin a rocky road" said he.

"But I finally got my fill!"

Once again, here's Dante in the front garden amongst the various blooms.  These pictures are from June 2014.

 Dante seems to fit in quite naturally in the garden, as if he is part of the panorama.  He is the most handsome garden ornament ever.

And, when he feels like some PURRivacy, he can always hunker down and go inCATnito!

For Dante, it was the best of both worlds.

The pink wiegela bushes were Dante's absolute favourites.  As you can see, from this picture taken in June 2014, he liked to get as close to them as possible.

There was something mesmerizing about these bushes.  The scent of their flowers seemed to have a similar effect to catnip.

Dante would drink in their 'purrfume', his heart would race and he'd get quite giddy.

All I can say is "Giddy-up, boy!"

Pee Ess:   Come and see Dani being a little offbeat.  Just click on her picture below.

These pictures of Dante come from way back in 2010.

On balance, Dante was very good at it -- balancing, that is -- on his toes, to boot!  He was doing his best to catch a squirrel who had just escaped his clutches.

However, he remained grounded (which limited his purrsuit) because of his size.  The tree was too small to accommodate his Maine Coonliness.  And at 24 lbs., gravity also kept him down to earth.

Obviously the tree has grown since then, but as it was a dwarf, it never attained the size required to support Dante's heft.

Alas, he had to confine his hunting to ground level.

"Tee hee!"
