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.
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!
Like his sisfur Domino and brofur Dylan, Dante was something of a mad hatter!
Here he is one year ago in June wearing an ivory and pink floral flatcap. He paired this with a dusty rose bowtie dotted with white flowers, and a silver Rolex watch with pink mother-of-pearl face.
Dante was very secure in his masculinity, so he could sport any colour and still look like the powerful mancat that he was. Being a mancat is all about CATitude after all!
Dante always loved being in the garden, especially when the weigela bushes were in full bloom. There was something about their scent that intoxicated him. And if he hunkered down beside the birdbath, he never knew what juicy bite might land within his PURRview.
Anything is pawsible and sometimes you just get lucky wherever you may be!
