So once again, Dante is King of his domain -- this time he is Dante Lion, King of the Jungle -- and Sascha is his Queen.  They even have a little one who seems to be part bat -- or is that just a mask for the true lion within?

In the jungle, you are never alone. There are eyes everywhere!

So King Dante has just signed a PURRivacy PAWlicy and affixed it with his ROYAL SEAL.

The royal couple wish you all a very Safe and Happy Hallowe'en without worrying about any stalkers out there.

Lions like to keep the stalking to themselves -- and who's going to argue with them?  It's their PURRogative, after all.

 Soup's on!!!

Dante also appears with his furblings and friends in "The 3-D Hallowe'en Extravaganza" on "Wendy's 3-D Cats".

It's hard to believe but it was just a little over a year ago that Dante and Sascha had their first date.

So much has happened since then.  I guess you could say it's been a whirlwind romance!

It was last fall, with all the autumn leaves whirling around them, that Dante and Sascha fell in love.

Soon after, they went to their first Hallowe'en party, as a couple.

Then last November, Dante celebrated American Thanksgiving with Sascha and her entire family.

In December 2012, they took their first trip abroad.  As part of their celebration of the "Twelve Days of Christmas", Dante and Sascha went to London, England.

Their Christmas adventures also took them to Paris, France. 

And finally, the adventure culminated in a PURRposal of marriage on Christmas Day.

Since then, Dante and Sascha have kept very busy.  Here they are at Dante's birthday skating party in Ottawa last January.  What a riot! 

Then, of course, they celebrated Valentine's Day in high style, as a newly engaged couple.  Note that Sascha is wearing her engagement necklace.

In March, Dante and Sascha did St. Patrick's Day proud.  It must have been the Irish in them coming out.

In April, they donned their Easter bonnets, and ...

... did a little digging for Easter eggs!

They couldn't resist whooping it up Mexican-style for Cinco de Mayo (in May, of course). 

And in June, they were off to the races -- the "Wiener Dog Races", that is!

Summer brought a romantic cruise in the Caribbean.

And now we've come full circle.

I wonder what Dante and Sascha will be this Hallowe'en?

And WHEN are they going to get married?

These are pictures of Dante in the back yard taken just a few moments ago.

 Talk about FUResh!

FUResh and FURagrant -- wanna whiff?

 Here is Dante all decked out -- even though it was still wet from the rain.

And, finally, just in is Dante's new winter coat!  This year he got a really hot deal. 
 Arent' you imPRESSed?

All I have to do is wish that Dante be hatted, and 'poof', it is so!  This is not to imply that Dante, himself, is a poof, even though his fur is rather poofy.  And at times, like right now, he could be termed a metrosexual with his bowtie fetish and all.

Dante is a cat of many facets -- kind of like a diamond in the ruff.  Actually, Dante's ruff is more spectacular than any diamond I've ever seen!  Witness ...

 Here is Dante 'ruffing it' in his plaid rustic cap and complementary bowtie.

 Sometimes Dante likes to cap things off, especially when a red, red robin comes bob, bob, bobbin' along!

And if he's feelin' kind of squirrelly, Dante finds it best to change outfits to get a whole new PURRspective on life.  Sometimes it's better just to sit still and observe.

When he's feelin' rather punk, he lets off steam by switching into his leather steampunk hat and coordinating tie.  "I likes ta enCOMPASS all kinds of style", says he. "An' wearin' steampunk is good fur my self-eSTEAM -- no doubt!"

So let's let bygones, be bygones and be gone.

It's pheasant hunting season again!  This time Dante is all prepared.  He is trying to blend in by wearing his pheasant-feather cap, but I don't really think the pheasants are fooled.

In fact, I think the pheasants are mocking Dante with their cocky strut and their scratchy screeches. Behind his back they are actually calling him a jerk.

"I'm reely not into huntin'", says Dante.  "All I wanna do is engage in confursation -- exchange a few pheasantries, is all."

"We're not gonna be more feddahs in yoor cap -- or da food on yoor Fanksgivin' table!" remark the pleasantly plump poultry.  "We're not exchangin' anyfing with yoo -- anyware, anytime." 

And the moral of this tale?  
When it comes to poultry, pheasants are paltry pickin's!

'Bas relief' is a form of sculpture that raises the subject slightly against a flat background for a sort of 3-D effect (imagine that!).

With that in mind, here is Dante in 'Paw releaf'.  Dante, himself, is a form of sculpture and he always stands out against any kind of background -- in this case autumn leaves.  He is, too, a member of the 3-D Cats, so he can't help but have a 3-D effect.

The pictures speak for themselves.

What a releaf!!!

Today is the FURst day of TOCKober!  So, in celebration, Dante has posed for some suPURR tock shots with a surprise ending.

 Come Tockober, Dante's always tockin' out his ass!

"Tock to da butt", says Dante ... 

 ... my head is uddahwise occupied!

And the end of this tale is the end of Dante's tail.  If you look really closely, you can see a face in all that fur. 

So look who's tockin' now!
