We looked out the window this morning and this is what we saw,

So we all got dressed up in our winter wear, and went outside to get the full experience.

Domino is wearing a pretty green wool knit cap and matching scarf.  After sitting in the snow for less than 10 minutes she is ready to come back inside.

Dylan was totally stumped.  The snowflakes were falling on his head, so he finally put on his red plaid hat, red scarf and mittens.  He needs mitts-on-a-string because he's always losing them.  He's ready to go back outside and actually play in the snow this time.

Dante's well prepared for a foray into the white stuff.  He's wearing his sparkly burgundy toque with faux fur pom-pom and a black and tan scarf.  He's been yearning to make a snowcat ever since the weather turned cold, and now he has the chance.  It's quite the large snowcat, too, because it makes even Dante look like its mini-me.

It's 'Movember' and my mancats are purrticipating by growing moustaches of their own.

In case you're not sure what 'Movember' really means, here's a definition from Wikipedia:

"Movember (a portmanteau from the Australian-English diminutive word for "moustache, "mo", and "November") is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer and other male cancers, and associated charities."

Considering the mancats have only had ten days to grow these 'staches, I think they've done pretty darn well.  What do you think?

Here's Dante's Movember moustache.  It has come in quite blond, but goes well with his ginger complexion.

Dylan seems a little taken aback by his moustache.  He can't quite seem to get used to it.  Purrhaps by the end of Movember, he'll wear it with more confidence.

And, not to be outdone by her mancat brothers, Domino, too, is standing up for the cause.  Since ladycats can't grow moustaches, she has made one herself, and attached it with a little moustache gloop.  (Mmmm, tasty!)

Who knew?

Well, you should all know, now, that education on men's health issues is very impawtant -- even if it comes from a ladycat.

As you know, the 3-Ds absolutely adore their hats, so today I have allowed them to put on a Hat Purrade as a salute to Fall.

Dante's in a brown corduroy newsboy cap with a flashy orange and brown plaid bowtie.  The little robin is wondering whether he should be bob, bob, bobbin' on over to greet this strange creature.  After all, it could be a relative!

Dylan is efur-so-dappurr in his gray and red glen plaid wool cap with coordinating bowtie.  Leaf it up to him to make a real fashion statement.   He thinks fall is just wonderful.

Full of wonder, indeed!

 Domino's wearing a newsboy cap, too, even though she's a girl because, of course, she believes in equal oppurrtunity.  And true Canadian that she is, she's also sporting a red maple leaf atop her hat.  Or maybe it just landed there purr chance!

 Dante is very sporty sporting his rust-coloured and gray plaid wool hat.  "It's good fur huntin'!, says he excitedly.  Unfortunately, the only thing he caught after a long day on the hunt was his foot in a rabbit hole.  "But it wuz a LUCKY rabbit hole", says he, undeterred.

Dylan's changed into a peach, blue and brown plaid flatcap which matches his fur-tones purrfectly. He's having a real ball out there amongst all the leaves in the back yard.

And it looks like the leaves are, too!  (Having a ball, that is.)

It's not hard to spot Domino in this trendy outfit!  She's topping it off with a black pillbox hat with ruffled feather and a coordinating accent on the bow at her waist.  She's gonna be the 'taco the town' in this one!

Hold the hot sauce!

Dante is wearing an autumn-toned Panama hat, even though we live much north of Panama.  He thinks the colours go well with his fur coat, as does the bowtie that he's chosen to pair it with.  He almost blends into the background in this outfit.  Even the squirrels don't seem to notice him as they go about their business!

Dylan's a real sophisticat in his dark brown Panama hat and brown paisley bowtie.  He looks ready for a night on the town (or even out of town, for that matter).  If he wants to go for dinner with his fiance, Halle, he'll have to travel all the way to Louisiana.

At least it's easier to sleep in First Class these days!

Domino has urned her place by planting herself in one.  She is doing a reprise of the black velvet flatcap with pink floral embroidery, mostly because it goes with her fashion-forward frock.  After all when it comes to fashion, she really gives a hoot (as does her friend, the owl)!

She doesn't mind bringing up the tail-end of the purrade, because she knows they always save the best for last.

Domino can be reddy 'on the fly' for wherever you're bound ...

... or down to earth and close to the ground.

She can be reddy right quick for a night on the town ...

... or a cozy night in, in her dressing gown.

And you know, for sure, when Christmas draws near ...

That she'll be on the reddy, chock full of good cheer!
