3-Ds DOING THEIR THING!

All of my babies were in the back yard this afternoon, enjoying the moderate tempurratures. Dante was occupied with the squirrel, as usual, and was being quite a bit more active than Domino and Dylan, who decided simply to be spectators.

Dante hunkered down under the crabapple tree as the squirrel flitted back and forth between our yard and the next door neighbour's. He would skirt around Dante and quickly lodge a nut in his mouth and then take off over or under the fence (whichever was handiest at the moment)! Dante did give chase several times, and once he even got one paw on the squirrel's tail as it was scaling the fence!!! Luckily, though no harm was done, and Dante still got his thrill.

Meanwhile, Domino decided to sit on the deck bench and watch. Dylan decided he wanted to do the same thing, but first had to check out his sister. Normally, this results in hissing and whapping (on Domino's part) and retreating (on Dylan's part), but all was quiet on this front today. You can see that Domino and Dylan are peacefully co-habiting, and ever so often glancing over to see how the squirrel games are coming along.

So all three cats were happy doing their own thing! Peace reigned in the back yard of the 3-Ds!

Dante, I am amazed to see that squirrel so close to you! He doesn't even look nervous!

We can't believe the squirrel got that close - the ones here stay very far away from kitties. Nice to see everyone enjoying an afternoon outside.

Have a great weekend,
Charlemagne and Tamar
