 Dani has developed a completely endearing habit.  For some reason this usually only happens after dark.  She will stand upright on her haunches and most recently has "reached for the stars" simultaneously, pawing at the air in a waving motion.

It is SO DARN CUTE!!!  I respond with various intonations of delight so I think I have reinforced this behaviour because it's happening more regularly.

Unfortunately I haven't been in a position to take pictures at the moment it occurs.  So I went to the internet to find pictures that would allow you to see what I see.

Although this first cat collage is all Maine Coons, it is something that a good number of kitties do.  Prepare yourself to be aMEWSed!

Now, while artfully adorable, this doesn't describe what I refer to as 'The Full Monty' with "arms" fully extended above their heads.  For that you'll have to scroll on down to the next collage.

This is a medley of just one kitty.  Her name is Keys and she is the Queen of Quirk when it comes to this PURRticular PURRactice.

If you are even a little bit intrigued by Keys, and would like to see more including a couple of brief videos of her performing her art, here's the link:  

And now for the culminating collage starring my very own Dani in Christmas drag.  While it isn't 'The Full Monty' it's still pretty darn cute.  

Dani keeps you on your toes by standing on hers!

And now for a little Postscript (or Pee Ess, as I call it).

The last time Dani did 'The Full Monty' in front of me I had my eyes buried deep in my iPad (good thing it was padded!) and was completely unaware of what was going on right in front of me.
Then I noticed some motion right above the horizon of my iPad.  It was Dani's paws waving back and forth attempting to get my attention!  

Adorable doesn't even begin to describe it. The best I can do is provide the closest pawsible representation:

I think Dani is being visiting by Dante, the ghost of Christmas past.

Dani is quite adept at the standing thing it appears! She looks marvellous stand on the chair in her dress! We do hope that you can catch her with the camera! Now we are off to go and look at standing cats!

She is so pretty all dressed up in her holiday finery ... I bet sooner or later you'll get that photo of her on the up and up!
