Here's Dylan hatted in navy blue in June of 2014.

Dylan just 'blue' me away in his navy fedora with blue-toned checked bowtie and gold and dark blue Ulysse Nardin watch.

He's got that wide-eyed look of surprise that was his signature, but still looks quite dappurr in his classic mode.

Mr. Blue Jay has checked Dylan out and is satisfied that he has served as inspiration for Dylan's choices.
"As another 'Wilde' creature once said:  Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery."
says he making reference to Oscar Wilde (a writer who was known 
for his appreciation of beauty)

It's a wild world, after all.

Here's a hatted picture of Domino from the summer of 2015.

She always looked fabulous in PURRple, but then she looked fabulous in just about any colour.  Her wide-brimmed woven deep PURRple hat with ivory floral embellishment sets off her natural complexion (i.e., her fur coat).  And what a beautiful silver necklace with PURRple flower pendant she is wearing!

Finally, she chose a PURRple bag made of alligator leather with gold latch and strap fasteners.  It all gives me butterflies!

What about you?

Here is a final post recalling the love story of Dylan and his fiance Halle.  They had such good times together.  These are just a few.

In 2011, Dylan and Halle had a beach vacation to celebrate Dylan's 8th birthday.

Afterwards they went out to a very posh SEEfood restaurant because as Dylan said:
"Wen I see food I wonts ta eat it!"

For Hallowe'en in 2013, Dylan and Halle dressed up as a satyr and a wood nymph (respectively).  They both dared to "go into the woods at night" that night!

This is the Christmas card they sent out that same year.

 Dylan gave this Valentines Day card to Halle in 2014.  She was surprised that he could speak French.  Being a Canadian cat it came naturally to him.

Being French-speaking also came in very handy on their trip to Paris later that same year.
"C'est fantastique!" exclaimed Dylan.

The loving couple also spent Easter together in 2014 purrchasing new hats just for the occasion.

They both dressed up as pirates for "Meow Like a Pirate Day" in 2015.

And they "Santified" themselves for their Christmas card that year, too.

New Year's 2016 saw Dylan and Halle celebrate the anniversary of their engagement, as well as ringing in this new year.

And Dylan wrote this moving message to Halle on their final Valentine's Day together this year.
It let her know that their love was furefur.  

In this picture Halle is wearing the engagement collar that Dylan gave her when she became his fiance. She never wants to take it off.   Today Halle still struggles with her loss, but Dylan has left ...

... his purrmanent pawprints on her heart!

Green-eyed Domino chose this same colour for all of her accessories in this picture from June 2016.

Her wide-brimmed green straw hat frames those eyes to great effect.  And her purse in green leather is just about a purrfect match.  She chose a silver necklace with green palm tree pendant as a fresh touch to the outfit.  Fresh as a daisy, too, I might add!

Her froggy friend is a keen admirer of all things green.  As soon as he saw Domino he hopped right to it.

"Wanna play a game 'o Frogger?" asked the frog.

"Not on YOUR life!" answered Domino.

Dylan had a wonderful fiance named Halle of Jacqueline's Cat House.  Halle has been quietly grieving, but now it's time to share her memories of Dylan and the good times they had.

They fell in love soon after meeting, and it was all uphill from there!

Even though Halle and her family live in the deep south in the U.S., and Dylan lived in Ottawa, Ontario Canada north of the border, they always made sure they got together as often as possible, and always on special occasions.

Here are just a few of a weekend getaway in New Orleans:

These photos were provided by Halle's Mum Jacqueline and were produced by Ann Adamus of Zoolatry.

As a continuing tribute to Dylan and their love, I will be posting more pictures of Dylan and Halle together in the near future.

Here's Dylan hatted up in PURRple tones.  They seem to suit his taupe complexion quite well.

Dylan's wearing a mulberry-coloured straw hat with navy and white band.  His bowtie, too, is in a purplish hue decorated with multicoloured butterflies and florals.

Despite his reputation, Dylan appears quite cool and confident in the moment, proving to himself and others that he's more than just a pair of wonky ears!

He could be quite unPURRturbed when it suited him.

Domino's wigged out in her black braided faux coif.

Today she definitely has an oriental flair, with a peach lace fascinator and flowers in her hair.  I think Domino was part chameleon because she always had the ability to morph completely into her surroundings.  One never doubted her authenticity.

And with her natural black and white coat, she could pull off any colour and it would blend in purrfectly.

Domino was the first and last of her kind -- a regular CATmeleon!

This is Domino in the late spring of 2010.

It was one of those hot rather humid days, so she chose a light and airy cotton dress with spaghetti straps.  It has a very cute design with the white and green polka dot top attached to a four-tiered white, and green-patterned skirt.

Domino's head is covered, as shade from the sun, in a breezy fedora-style white hat with green, peach and yellow feathers on the side.  Her purse is what is called green "jelly" with tan trim and a peach flower applique.  It's a perfect aside to her outfit.

Instead of a choker, Domino is wearing a sterling silver and green 'croaker'.   All she could say was "Ribbit!" because of the frog at her throat.

The only thing more annoying than a frog is a whole chorus line of them.
Very 'ribbiting' indeed!

Dylan's a cheeky chappy 'en chapeau' in this picture from 2014.

He certainly is colourful in his white, orange, purple and yellow plaid flatcap and outstanding purple, red and orange bowtie.  Once again he is wearing a floral-banded wristwatch which ties into his schema.  Even the butterfly fits into this pattern!

Some things never change -- even on the Rainbow Bridge, except that the colours are even brighter.

Domino takes a powder in her blue wide-brimmed fascinator with white floral flourishes in this picture from June 2016.

She was wearing a dainty bluebell necklace and carrying a baby blue 'Hello Kitty' handbag.  She was the epitome of kitty femininity and ...

... she always 'blue' me away!

This is a shot of Dylan all hatted up in June of 2015.

He's looking very dapPURR in his light blue plaid flatcap and tie with matching tones.  Even his watch is in tone, too.

And you'll note that every hare is in place -- even his pet rabbit!

But when nighttime comes, they both break loose.
They must have gotten some juice from the Energizer Bunny because
they just keep going and going.

Get back in your cages you Go-Go dancers!
