Here's one of Dante's hatted pictures; this one from June last year.  Generally, he saved his hat photos for the 3-D cat blog along with his brother and sister, but methinks we will now share some of them on this one.

Dante always looked marvelous in just about any hat, but this brown straw fedora with teal band and trim seems to especially suit him.  And his white floral bowtie "ties" in just purrfectly, don't you think?  Also, being the timely gentlemancat that he was, he is sporting a gold and dark teal Ulysse Nardin watch.  Obviously he was a mancat of suPURRb taste in addition to all of his other fabulous qualities!

He is posing with a plant pot shaped like a cat's head (planted with begonias), and embellished only the way 'Jim Shore' (its creator) could do.  Dante is emulating the plant pot by holding some begonias, too.  He's pretty nicely embellished himself.

Hat's off to Dante forevermore!

Who needs a hat when you can wear a crown?

These pictures were taken one year ago in June.

 As usual, Dante was lying in among his beloved weigela bushes. 
He was obviously in a state of wonder. 

Wondering what he could catch for a quick snack, that is!

"Go fish!" said Dante.

This picture was taken in late June of 2010.  There was nowhere Dante liked to be more than in the cool grass under the shade of a tree.  

In this photo, there was a plant pot of flowers almost immediately in front of him and I managed to capture the colour of those flowers and their leaves as a charming introduction to Dante's beautiful face.  It gives the picture a vivid glow.

 Dante is still basking in his after-glow
 and always will!

Here's Dante in the jungle which was our next door neighbour's front yard circa 2010.

Like any lion, he is comfortable in this habitat ...

... even though there are those who might think it's a stretch!
