The first picture shows Dante looking rather leonine. This photo was taken just a couple of days ago.

I have begun to notice that Dante's fur is starting to thicken up, again, although it is only the beginning of August! Last year, I noticed this trend starting at the end of August, so I guess this year he's ahead of the game.

As Dante's fur volume increases, he looks more and more lion-like. His mane becomes huge and overflows into his underbelly fur (and vice versa, or so it seems).

The pictures following the first one show him in the early to late fall, and then winter. He seemed to be at his most lionesque between October and January. Last year he had the biggest mane so far, though perhaps he will exceed that record this year! Dante certainly seems to be on his way.

So, for those of you who already thought Dante was a mini lion -- the best is yet to come! In the snow, he looks quite like Aslan, as has been oft-remarked. To watch Dante's progress over the next few months, stay tuned to this blog as my mane mancat morphs into lionhood once again!

It's Sunday and here's Dante hanging out on (and hanging over) a bench in our front garden. He's not interested in moving much. He is the very definition of relaxation ... which is something we should all do today, so I'll leave you with these pictures in your mind so you can follow Dante's example.

Without further ado, adieu!

Oops! The P.S. is that there are more kittens to be smitten with on the LOLSpot today. See Part II by clicking on the LOL Icon at the top right of this post.

Some of you may have been fortunate enough to see Dante's winter purrformance earlier this year. Although this is a repeat purrformance from last summer, I thought it was seeworthy once more.

Dante has held the title of "Canadian Poop Idol" for some time now, as no one has efur been able to unseat him. No other coontender can purrform his duties as gracefully and in such a dignified manner as Dante.

So without further ado (or adon't), here is your Canadian Poop Idol, the Magnificent Lacocoon Dante! Please hold your applause until the end of the show.
