These pictures are from 2012 when Dante was enjoying a particularly nice September day outside on his favourite porch chair.
And Dante had a sparkling PURRsonality to match!
As a red tabby cat he already had so many different tones of dark and light in his fur.
But in the bright sun, even more shadings and textures are revealed.
Here his puss is truly coppery, and that's why, at least to me, he'll forever be my 'Coppurrnipuss'!
