Dani was lying in the front garden under some foliage and feeling quite dismayed.

"Sheesh!" she said.  "Even da weeds is goin' ta pot."

Luckily Dani is still innocent and we'd like to keep it that way.

No more hanging out with that Tom cat down the street, Dani.
Smoking isn't for kittens!

And the ONLY kind of weed you need is ...

Lend a paw in keepin' it green!

Dani was making a statement by lying down on the job.  She's all for feline rights and is protesting against animal cruelty.

 "Yes, Mama -- dis means yoo!  Get me outta dis dress rite NOW!"

The dress Dani wants to shed is a cute white-with-black polka-dot number which has a black satin ribbon and large bow at the waist.  The collar of the dress is a statement of its own being oversized and pointed.  Her hat has a white translucent woven brim with a stunning black rose and white feathers on top.  This I can just remove digitally.  Likewise for her silver necklace with black and white enamel pendant and her petite bracelet of white circles.

Dani's purrse is a wonderful complement to this outfit being white leather with bold black stripes. All in all it's quite a geometric combination.

"As fah as I'm concerned, yoo kin get ridda efurryfing except da purrse.
 I wanna check it ta see if dis is ware yoo keeps my treets." says Dani demanding immediate payment.

No, Dani. Your treat is in the kitchen.

This is a gallery of Dani posing on the front steps with the autumn sun behind her making her fur absolutely glow!

Like the true model that she is (even when only wearing her natural fur coat) Dani takes different PAWStures to highlight all of her different moods, and show off her very best features. I must say, she really doesn't have a bad side.  They all look pretty good from here!



Inquisitive (Huh?)



Dani has such depth and FURvour!

But she's never as deep as when she's meditating.

Dani was deep into the garden last weekend -- up to her chest in PURRiwinkle.

 "Dis cud make grate CATmouflage" said she.

 "Is supposta be grownd covah but ...

... if I scrunches down close to da grownd I cud be undacovah, too!"

And what do you do when your under a cover?

Zzzzzzzzzzz ....

Here's a lovely picture of Dani just relaxing in her wicker chair and enjoying the sunshine.

She seems like she's deep in thought.  I wonder what she's thinking.

"I'm finkin' 'bout climin' up in dat tree.
Wot else, silly?"

Here's Dani in her second dress of the week!  I have to take pictures more frequently now that she's growing so fast.  However, this particular dress was always too large for Domino so it fits Dani purrfectly.  Nice 'n comfy!

The dress is made from fine wale purple corduroy and it has little flutter sleeves and a pleated skirt with bows at the hip.

Dani thought this dress was a little plain so she has oomphed it up with her accessories.

Her hat is a purple fascinator with bright fuschia and pink feathers wound into circles.  Her purrse is also quite bold in a multicolour floral print which is quite complementary (as well as complimentary as it seems to inspire a number a compliments).

Around her neck she is wearing a long silver chain with owl pendant studded with purple and blue gems.
 Her bracelet is silver with purple sparkly stones.

And here is the back of the dress which has a white crystal rose near the neck.  Dani really took a 'shine' to it when she saw that!

This shot also illustrates how tall and still slender Dani is.  She has yet to grow into those long legs of hers.

Unlike a butterfly, Dani's still in metamorphosis.  She's just as pretty as one already, though.

Here are some portrait shots of Dani which highlight (and lowlight) all of her facial attributes including those long and lovely lynx tips of hers.

They speak for themselves.

"O reely!  Well, I'd like ta speak fur MYself." says Dani quite directly.
And what do you have to say, Dani?
"Whassup?"  she enquires.

"Enquirin' minds wanna noe!"

Dani's sitting on the bench in the front garden with the fading hydrangeas all around her.

She's out there to pose in her pretty dress, but seems unsure about something.

"Next time make shur it fits!" declares Dani.
This dress IS getting a little small for her.  It's kind of short and pulling at the snaps in the front.  Her wardrobe was passed down to her from Domino who was such a little cat at 6 lbs., and Dani who's closing in on 9 lbs. is still growing like a weed.  She's a Maine Coon, after all.

However, like the true PURRofessional that she is, Dani just sucks it up and does her best.  And after she's finally defrocked ...

... it's time (of course) for a nap!

Dani's celebrating the waning days of summer by hotting it up in bright pink and zebra print.

Her CATitude is a fiery as her frock!  Just look at that face which is purrfectly framed by her black, pink and white woven disc-shaped fascinator.  She has a beautiful butterfly necklace in sterling with pink and black enamel at her throat.

And Dani's funky 'Hello Kitty' handbag is a fun and fitting addition to her 'out-there' outfit.  Dani likes to walk over the line when it comes to fashion.  She always makes a bold statement.

You've come a long way, baby!

Your ancestors would be PURRoud.

Dani's Auntie Renate is actually my friend who lost her beloved kitty, Dolly, last year after 19 years together.  As Renate and her husband like to travel quite a bit, she is not planning to get another cat. So, she has adopted Dani as her niece -- and, as you can clearly see, they quite enjoy each other.

 "Hewwo Auntie Renate -- ware has yoo bin?"

 Dani was soooooo happy to see her that a little nuzzle by muzzle was in order.
That sure made Auntie Renate laugh!

 Dani and her Auntie look at each other adoringly.

 "Have you been a good girl, Dani?" asks Auntie Renate.

"Absolootly NOT!!!" exclaims Dani with that glint in her eye.
"I prides myself on bein' NOTTY."

"You're such a little monkey!" 
"What have you been up to?" asks Auntie Renate.

At least five feet off the ground I'd say!

Dani's pulling double duty today ...

... knowing that the weekend is coming when she can take a break.
