Last week I showed pictures of Dante in the snow, and now Domino takes her turn. While she's definitely not fond of the cold, she doesn't mind going out on a mild winter's day. The snow is not a deterrent if the sun is shining.
I just love the contrast of Domino's black fur against the white. It certainly makes for some interesting photographic opportunities!
Domino starts off her snow trek by checking the scentmarkings on the porch. It's home base, after all!
Domino bravely dives off the steps of the porch...
...but then proceeds more timidly into the white wonderland.
She finds the kitty bench which provides a nice, warm oasis in this massive desert of snow.
The sun is shining, so a little basking is in order, she thinks!
Finally, it's time to leave the relative comfort of the bench to venture off, once more, into the snow.
First, Domino does a tentative test with her little paw...
... before diving feet first into the powder!
Domino doesn't go very far. She settles on mama's bench, just opposite the other. She's more or less done her circle tour from the front porch to the kitty bench and back to the porch area.
I just love this picture of Domino's little hind foot with her footprint in the snow just behind her.
And we couldn't close this Tuxy Tuesday post before Christmas without including Milo. Ann of Zoolatry was so kind as to help Domino and Milo get together for a Christmas visit. This is their first Christmas as a couple, so they wanted to celebrate it in a special way. They are warm and cozy and settling down for a snuggle. Before they do, though, they read one of their favourite stories and just thoroughly enjoy the moment.
They know that they must part again, because each of their families want them at home on Christmas Day. Before they are separated again, though, Domino and Milo would like to have a private moment. So at that we'll leave them to do what lovers do (a little Christmas co-mingling, if you get my drift).
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
