Dante was relaxing on the porch step with his front legs extended and paws together.  It seemed to me that he appeared very lion-like.  But you can be the judge of that.

So whaddya think?

Dante is with Sascha in South Carolina with her folks and feline sisfurs and brofur, Brian.

They are visions (and visionaries) in pastels.  Dante is chic (not chick) in his white straw designer Panama hat which helps him keep his cool.  His bowtie adds that extra splash of colour and finesse that is definitely Dante.

Sascha is truly his other half, and although she pales beside him (because her coat is a paler shade than his), she is a ladycat that makes a definite statement in her light blue and white fascinator hat, and Easter bow in shades of Spring.

Sascha's statement is "Let's haffa reely EGGcitin' Easter efurryone!"

"Amen to dat!", says Dante.

Dante was out in the front yard late last week.

 The sun was shining brightly and the ...

 ... snow was fast receding!  The bench was entirely clear and ...

 ... the garden was making its first earthy appearance!
"Well", says Dante.  "Dere's no lookin' back now.  Spring is ackshully here at last!"

 So Dante sat on the front porch which was finally in a fit state for habitation after such a long, cold, hard winter.

 He looked up at the sun and said, thankfully, that once again ...

"My future's so brite, I gotta wear shades!"

Dante's 'on deck' again for the first time after the winter.  Finally enough snow has melted to allow him to navigate around the edges of the deck, and to sit on the deck benches without getting his butt wet.

So here is Dante's 'Deckadent' Extravaganza.  As usual, he doesn't disappoint.

"I'm all deck'd out an' noware ta go!", says Dante.

But that's okay because when he stays put, it makes for an awesome photoshoot!

However, it won't be long now before Dante's backyard kingdom turns from white to green.  Then there will places and things to explore galore!

... OR IS HE?

Well, it's April and time for those yearly showers that will melt the snow and bring forth the bounty from the earth.  Dante has been waiting eagerly for Spring, but now that it's here he's having second thoughts.

"I tot I cud go outside an' bask in da sun", says he.  "Instead it's jus' weddah fur ducks!"
Dante tried on this waterproof cowboy hat to try to keep himself dry, but it didn't even cover his ears.

Then he tried an umbrella hat on the advice of his little squirrel friend, and that covered most of his ears, except for the very tips.  So no tip of his hat to Ralph for this one!

One cardinal rule for keeping the rain off your head is to wear a good ole sou'wester.  But this one covered one ear completely, and left the other one out to get wet!  So Dante decided there was only one thing left to do ...

... and that was to go back inside where it's dry and warm.  Dante's not the least bit tempted to go outside until all that water stops dropping from the sky.   Even all those birdies taunting him aren't enough to convince him to give it another try.

"I'm all in a muddle wif all dose puddles", declares he.  "See ya latah alligatahs!"
