FRISKY FRIDAY WITH THE 3-DS

You can see that the snow has all melted in our yard now (both back and front actually), and kitties are feeling frisky -- well, the boys anyway.

In the first three photos, it looks like Dylan's having a fine time with the crabapple tree.  He looks downright silly in the second one!  What's gotten into him, you might ask?


































And here's the answer.  An evil black squirrel, of course!  Look at those sharp talons on its little paws, the steely look in its beady eyes and the cheeky little pink tongue poking out -- why I think it's giving Dylan the raspberry!  What gall!


Unlike Dylan, Domino just chooses to ignore it.  No matter how hard it tries, she just keeps her cool.


































Dante has his own methods for squirrel purrsuit, somewhere inbetween Dylan's style and Domino's.  He certainly is attentive to the evil black thing, who taunts him from above, but he bides his time (unlike Dylan), attempting to lull it into feeling safe before he ultimately attacks.

What I didn't capture here was Dante in the chase.  What sport!  He almost got it, too!  Oh well, there's always a next time.  Truly, there is.

Wow, Domino IS a cool cookie, as my mom would say.

And yes, there's always a next time. :-)

Dylan is so funny chasing the squirrels! We would probably be like that, too!

Dante looks like he's thinking about his next move.

There's that squirrel of color again! I love them! I haz a sad because we had to remove our birdfeeders. We had smooth-tailed squirrels aka rhymes with cats... getting into garage and under our addition on the back of the house. We really couldn't have that. The huge tree in the backyear attracts a lot of birds and squirrels but we won't be nose to nose with them anymore!
It's beginning to look a lot like springtime... LOVE to the 3-Ds

Domino is not impressed with the rodent. Great pictures.

Dylan is funny watching the squirrel. I would have to go right up the tree after it.

Gandalf sorely misses giving chase to evil squirrels! It is hard for him to merely watch from afar!
