It snowed again since last week, enough to serve as an icy backyard litterbox for our Secretary of Fertilization of the Society of Feline Gardeners (aka Dante).
And as there is nothing else to be done in the garden, in these winter months, Dante once again does what he does best. At least he's picturesque while he's doing it!
One thing I've noticed is that Dante's red fur looks even redder these days against the white of the snow.
Dante surveys the vast snowscape that is his
Off he goes into the wild, white yonder!
A gust of wind whips his tail fiercely about, but Dante 'stands fast'!
(Stands fast = A quickie)
And then he settles down to business. (Please don't be dismayed by any bits of brown you may notice -- they are just leaves left from autumn.)
Even while attending to the call of nature, Dante poses masterfully for the camera.
He is a PURRfect representative of his breed. There's nothing quite like the sight of a Maine Coon in his natural habitat.
And no job is complete without the cover-up!
Even if you make a bigger mess in the PURRocess!
Red on white -- what a sight!
After a job well done, Dante takes off at high speed. Here I've caught him just springing into action!
"O if only I cud weelly SPRING into ackshun", he says. "But dat is still moar dan two monfs away!"
So, there's nothing to be done but wait, and plan for the day when the garden will be more than just a litterbox once more.
