3-D MANCAT MONDAY: THE ODYSSEY!

Dante and Dylan are out in the back yard after the latest snow fall.  The snow is so deep that it has not only covered the patio table (which we leave out year round) but the tabletop is supporting another mountain of snow, as well.

Dante, as usual, is on a quest to find the most suitable spot to make his daily deposit.  Dylan is purely a spectator, because as we all know watching Dante doing his thing has become a real spectator sport.

So, you know this post will be a long one since it's titled "The Odyssey".  It's the story of two pussycats; one who embarked on a long and arduous journey under Arctic conditions and another who watched it all happen.  A more approPURRiate title may actually be "The ODDySEE", because what Dylan is seeing is quite odd indeed.

 Dante starts off by testing the snow on the back deck, while Dylan tries to keep things in balance.


 The snow is packed ...

... too tightly, though. 




 And further tests reveal that ...



 ... digging is imPAWSible.



 So with the tail winds, and his brother, at his back ...


 ... Dante starts off on his trek.



The surface of the snow is very firm as it easily supports Dante's weight.




Finally Dante stops on the far side of the mountain. 



 Here, he makes some headway, even though you can't actually see his head.




"I kin reely dig watchin' Dante dig", says Dylan ...



... but it's da smell aftahwahds dat's reely hawd ta take!"




Finally, Dante emerges from the dump site -- victorious!



 ... and embarks on the equally long journey home.



"Well, it's ovah at last", says Dylan.



"An' we has both survived to tell da tail!"

What are the ODDS?

THE END

Not just an odyssey, but a perilous adventure!

OMC, that's a lot of snow. We still have a lot as well, but we hope that with the warming temps this week it will start to recede. Please, let it be so. LOL.
