Dante just adores nature, and nowhere is nature more all-PURRvasive than in the woods behind our house.
There he can commune with all sorts of wildlife -- the birds, the butterflies and the odd hedgehog. (He likes the 'odd' ones better because of their offbeat sense of humour.)
Maine Coons love to play with water -- especially running water. Our woods culminate in a ravine with many small natural waterfalls babbling softly -- just idyllic for our Dante!
Not only are the woods popular with Dante, but Dante has made quite the splash in the woods!
It's a very symbiotic relationship.
Or, in Dante's case, quite SIMBAotic!
In a clearing in the woods, there is a small meadow replete with wildflowers and insects, of which the butterflies are once again most apparent. It's the best place by far to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon.
Imagine a world where butter flies -- life just doesn't get any better!
