 Dani has two winter coats.  One is a bright orange quilted number with hood.  It also sort of brings out her complexion, and it's very warm on chilly days.   No chillies are getting through this one!

The other coat is covered in warm and fuzzy leopard skin, faux though it may be.  I thought this might be Danis fafurite, but if she had her druthers, she'd druther just wear the orange one.

So, because I am the one who ultimately makes the choice, I must admit I tend to select the leopard more often.

Here are pictures of Dani in both coats.  I am conducting a global survey to get a more unbiased opinion.

Which coat do you like best for Dani?

This question is a little trickier than one might think.  Have you guessed it?

Answer:  The coats are one and the same.  It is reFURSible!!!

 Like this little kitty.  Back and forth and back again!

However, in reality, there is no option; you gotta love the skin you're in.
Just shift your gears and go forward!

The first picture is Dani at a few weeks old in February 2017.  Even way back then, you can discern her fashion sense in its infancy.

She is also toying with a little mouse rattle which will help to develop her hunting skills.

And here she is again, four months later.  She has been able to address her penchant for dresses in the interim.

She has hunted down a white flower and is keeping it captive for the nonce.  Kitties are fast learners and Dani is no different.

Well, maybe just a little.

 This purrticular piece of art spoke to me.  It said "I look a lot like Dani.  She can borrow my dress if she likes."

So I transplanted Dani's head (the word is overlayed, actually) over hers.  To do this I had to find a picture of Dani pointing in the right direction and cut out HER head.

Well, we can see where this is headed!

After superimposing Dani's head, I smudged the edges so they blended in better, and used a little bit of lighter colour from the Mosaic effect on Fotorus to achieve a more believable transition into the background.

I also used one of the Fantasy effects on Fotorus to age the picture.  The final flourish was the frame which I selected on Framify.

So, while the art is not originally mine, I managed to change it into a viable portrait of Dani.

Enlightenment is key!

Dani is fittingly leading this funny, friendly group called The Fits.  They tend to work in fits and starts, so she tries to keep them focussed.  Dani shows them all how it's done and then she calls in June of Zoolatry.

June exceeds her pawtential by delivering twice.

Thereafter, the line-up is as follows:

                                Kiki and Maxwell of Brian's Home

                                Mudpie of Mochas,Mysteries,Meows

                                Rosie of 15andMeowing

                                Katie Isabella of Katie Isabella

                                Shimshi and Trixie of Purr-sonally Speaking

                                Guest Dog Cookie from MessyMimi'sMeanderings

                                Eric of Memories of Eric and Flynn

We're off and trying to keep up with The Fits.  What a ride!


I found my heart belly up in my pouch!
An' I set it free ...
