This is Dani's first Hallowe'en so she's not quite sure what it's all about yet.  However, she's doing her best to BEE all that she can BEE in a fancy red bee costume.

"I yam totally BEEsotted wif my neckliss" says Dani in delight. 

It certainly is BEE-ootiful, isn't it?  Along with her headband, this necklace gives a real flappurr vibe to the outfit as a whole.  And we all know how much Dani likes things that flap.

 That raven better watch out or he'll be her Hallowe'en treat.
"Dere's nuttin kwite like ravin' on da BBQ!" remarks she.

However, Dani's already got a mouse in her 'Trick or Treat' bag.  I don't think she realizes yet that it's actually a toy mouse with catnip inside.  So it's both a "trick" and a "treat".  Could it BEE any better?

For efurryone out there tonight be safe and keep your eyes wide open, because you never know what might be just around the corner.  And from Dani to you, have a very ...

Dani's an optimistic kind of girl.

She always looks forward to anything that life may have in store.

 Except, of course, when things are definitely ...

... looking up!

 Dani's fortunes have just gone sky high!

Dani's dressed up to the nines with nowhere to go in PURRticular.

 Her dress is made of warmer woolly fabric for fall.  The wide collar and the skirt are black with pink polka dots, while the bodice is a black weave with a touch of sparkle.  At the waist is pink lace culminating in a bow at the back.

Dani's hat is also primarily lace -- black lace, that is -- adorned with a flourish of pink flowers.  She has chosen a double strand of pink beads with silver enhancers to complement this outfit, along with a silver bracelet with pink sparkling gems.

In this view from the back you can see that Dani has accessorized with even more sparkle in her pink-sequined shoulder bag with silver trim.  It all helps to illuminate her sparkling PURRsonality.

"I wishus I had sumware ta go" said she.  "But I noes I is still too young ta date."

Not to worry sweet Dani, your future is sure to be rosy!

Here's a close up of Dani with her eyes wide open (unlike yesterday's post).  Those eyes are so big and beautiful, and her Maine Coon-ness is more and more evident as she grows.

From the lynx tips of Dani's ears to her prominent muzzle and ever-burgeoning ruff around her neck, Dani is Maine Coon ...

... through and through.

We Canadians, including Dani of course, are celebrating our Thanksgiving.  Lots of people have their turkey dinners on Sunday, but we're having ours on Monday which is on the official Thanksgiving Day.

Since this is Dani's first Thanksgiving, she's all excited, and never moreso than to taste-test turkey out of the oven (instead of just a can).

"It duzn't hurt ta look like a turkey eidah" says she.
"Mama tells me dey cant reely fly, so dat makes 'em easy pickins!"

Unfortunately, they don't know when to 'leaves' well enough alone.
And that's why we call them TURKEYS!

Dani's in the front garden peeking out between the bushes.

"I'd like ta fink I'm inCATnito but ... 

... I guess dat's a liddle bit too much ta ask.  Isn't it Mama?"

On this subject, Dani's on de fence.

Dani's all ready for a fancy dress party.

"Dat's why I is warin' a fancy dress"  says she.

And indeed this one is quite the showy little number.  It is white taffeta with fuschia-coloured roses and a wide satin ribbon with matching rose at the waist.  She has a fascinating fascinator in lilac adorned with roses and fuschia flowers on her head which coordinates purrfectly with her fancy frock.

There is a sterling silver necklace with purpley pink heart-shaped pendant at her neck and a multi-colour pastel gem bracelet on her wrist.

For this special occasion, Dani has chosen an elegant beaded evening bag, also in fuschia, with silver rose embellishment.  It's rather old-fashioned in a fanciful sort of way.

This shot shows the back of Dani's gorgeous gown in its entirety.  It was taken before she was completely accessorized.  She had yet to bejewel herself.

Once Dani fully embraces her inner PURRincess, she gets carried away with the grandeur of it all.  She is truly destined to be the belle of the ball.

Dani was born in late January this year so every month there's something new for her.  This is the first time she could observe October, so she's sitting out on the front porch steps taking it all in.

One little leaf has landed in front of her and rather than playing with it,
she is in awe.

And even when she's back inside she's still mesmerized by the splendours of autumn.

"Ah, look at dat" says she.  "Dose colours is simpleh amazin'!"
