Here we are one year after Dani had her spay oPURRation.  Boy was that a fun day!  Especially once we came home from the vet.

 At the vet I purchased Dani this red jumpsuit which was meant to stop her from licking her incision and pulling on her stitches.  If she didn't have this protection she would have had to wear "The Cone of Shame" which I didn't think would go down very well with this playful and spirited kitten.

At first I thought it was a good choice because she tried to lick her wound but was thwarted by the jumpsuit.

And "The Cone of Shame" was a bonus because now it could be used as a toy!   
"It sure smells funny!" said Dani.  "Jus' like da vets."

 Now she could get her own back by beating up on the dastardly thing.

 However, it wasn't very tasty by any stretch of the imagination.

So, Dani just decided to let it go!

Funnily enough (or not!) she did the same thing with the red jumpsuit! That very same day, she wriggled out of it and disposed of it in a place unknown.

"Hah!" gloated Dani.

There went 25 bucks down the drain -- or wherever she hid the darn thing!

Good thing for Dani that my love for her is "un-CONE-ditional".

Not all kitties are so lucky!

Today is Canada's 151st birthday, and Dani is totally up for the big celebration. She is 100 purr cent "Made in Canada" and proud of it!

Dani knows all the words to both "O Canada" and "The Maple Leaf Furever".  Her furvour will never flag, especially since she's waving one.

All of Canada is celebrating today.

Including a host of Canadian Mounties ...

... our very eager beavers ...

... our party-hardy Canada geese ...

... our hard-drinking, penguin-eating polar bears ...

... and our iconic Canadian moose!

Yesterday I posted one of Dani's numerous outtakes.  And today I'm posting the intakes -- some of the better ones despite the tricky lighting.





So, hold your breath -- and take it all in!

Just like Dani.

Dani simply adores her basket chair on the front porch.

 "It has sucha nice comfee cushion" says she.

 "An' yoo kin see a long way down da street from up here."

 "A course it's a good place ta pose fur pichurs."

 "Or ta simplee relax."

 "Sumtimes I likes ta sit here an' just hassa good fink."

"But best o' all is da daydreamin' cuz yoo kin go
