TUXY TUESDAY: DETERMINED DOMINO














It's Tuesday, and there is Domino at the front door, waiting to be let in. When I decide to take pictures of her instead, she takes things into her own paws (and claws).

You will notice the weatherstripping behind her in the second and fourth shots is rather ragged from previous attempts at breaking and entering.

Domino is rather smart, and realizes that the door handle might be the "key" to getting in. Unfortunately, she is a little short in stature and without the requisite thumb to be effective in this instance.

So, then she withdraws to the chair beside the door, and proceeds to stare at it intently as if it would open by her sheer will. Her will is very great, by the way, so I'm not surprised she thinks this way. Domino is one determined little ladycat and does not give up easily (if at all).

Not to worry, after I finished shooting this little scenario, I opened the door for her, and Domino quickly scampered in. More quickly than usual, as Domino is normally one to linger on the threshold. I guess she was hearing her dinner call her from the kitchen!

Very cute!

Glad to hear you acquiesced!

Toy will help you get in Domino...he is good at figuring those things out and he has a long reach. He, however, tries to break out because he can only go out in harness.=^Y^=

We laughed over "breaking and entering"! Glad the mama finally let you in!

Great pictures. Even if you did have to wait to get in!

Domino is such a cutie! But was she hurrying in for food, or expecting maybe a little love note from Milo? She looks very happy in that second to last picture which is why I was thinking it could be the latter!
