Double the Dante; Double the Fun!

Here, Dante does the Doublemint Twins PURRoud!

 These Oriental Dantes have two orientations as one looks to the west and other looks to the east.

Here Dante doubles as his own doppelganger!

"We cud be triPURRlets!", says Garfield.

But as they say, two's company, and three's ... well you get my drift!

Spring has finally arrived, and while there is still plenty of snow on the ground, it is melting!

"I'm happeh dat da snow is finally meltin'", says Dante.

"But wot trooly melts my heart is ....

... a good ole fashun'd TUNA MELT!"

I took these pictures of Dante just yesterday and, as it turned out, each one showed only one of his eyes.  It makes me wonder if this was more than just coincidence -- PURRhaps some synchronicity at work?

"I jus' wundahs wots goin' on -- dat's all!"

Even though close-ups of Dante are something to behold, there's more to him than just facial beauty.

 "Butt before I turns my back on yoo, let's jus' face it!"

 "My backside isn't as fluffeh as my front side, butt ...

 ... my backside's biggest attrackshun is my tail!  Isn't it lovfurly?"

 "My tail is kwite long so I kin wrap it around me if I gets cold."

 "I likes ta wave it like a flag wherevah I goes!"

 "Sumtimes it feels like it has a life allah its own."

 "One fing fur shur -- I kin always count on my tail to back me up."

 "It's dere cum rain, shine or stormy weddah -- no shadow of a doubt."

"Wot kin I say -- it's one of da hi-lites of my existence." 

"An' best of all, dis tail always has a happeh ending!"

I went through some old pictures of Dante, though they never truly get old, do they?  As a result, I have resurrected some beauties from years gone past, still focusing on Dante in winter.

So, Dante would like to regale you with his latest gallery of PURRtraits.  Are you ready?

Set, go ...

"Maine Coons got more pounce PURR ounce!"

"Even da snow needs ta be KNEADED now an' den!"

"Yo, Patty!  I is out heer on da PATTY-YO."

 "I crosses my hart an' hopes fur pie!" 

 "Shush!  I'm negotiatin' a Peace TREEty!"

 "I'm feline a liddle flakey at da moment!"

 "Time fur a reLEAF pichur!"

"Sumtimes life is simply MAHBELOUS!"

Dante is out in the cold air and blustery March wind.

Dante has extended fur tufts on his ears, not only to keep him warm, but to gauge which way the wind is blowing.

Here, up close, you can see the wind whipping not only his fur coat but his ear tufts, as well.

In this case, it appears that the wind is coming from the Northeast.
A good old "Nor'Easter" can cause lots of trouble, but luckily Dante lives far enough inland from the East Coast that the winds are mitigated by the time they reach his ears.

But unless you are up close and PURRSonal with Dante, it's hard to see which way the wind is actually blowing.

He needs something like a windsock to signal the direction of the wind from a distance -- like they do at airports.
(Who knew that the wind wears socks?)

 The red and white stripes of the windsock made Dante think of his friend, "The Cat in the Hat".
 "Hey dood, do ya fink I cud borrow yoor hat?", asked Dante.

"Why, yes you may, On this windy March day", replied "The Cat in the Hat".

So Dante donned "The Cat in the Hat's" red and white striped top hat, and he tied it securely under his chin.

"Now you can not only see the wind, but you can harness it's power!", says he.

"And if that's not enough
To show your real stuff
Why simply break wind"
Said "The Cat" as he grinned!
