Here is Dante in the driveway just the other day. It was warmer than it has been and the sun was strong.  So Dante decided to have a bath and literally wash himself in the light.

Witness ...

 It's nice and dry on the driveway, and the pavement is warm on the feet!

 It's the PURRfect spot to take a bath.

 Dante takes a PAWS to reflect!

Gotta straighten things out a little -- his tongue's in a twist!

 Ah!  It's such a beautiful day!

 If it wasn't for the snow, one would almost think it was summer!

"All finished!  How duz yoo like me now?  By da way, I'd like ta introduce yoo to my faddah.  Even doe I luvs my Dada Walter, I still fink about the mancat who made me who I am today ...

... His name is Sergeant Pepper and he's 16 years old.  He still lives with the breeder and is very happy in his retirement.  In his heyday, he was not only sire to many a Maine Coon kitten, but was himself a Master Grand Champion showcat.  Of course he'll always be a champion in Dante's heart, furever and always in PURRpetuity!

Dante wants to know:  "Doo yoo fink we look alike?"

You can think it's summer here too on some spots :)
I think you and your dad have the same noose :)

Dante, you and your Dad's face are a lot alike. He is gorgeous too and a big boy also. I have always wanted to have a Maine Coon cat but it is not to be. Good job also Dante, getting that bath in. Take care.
