TUXY AND TABBY TUESDAY WITH DOMINO AND DANTE: DYNAMIC DUO

The dynamics between Domino and Dante are very interesting.  Domino is only one-third the size of her younger brother.  She comes in at just under 7 lbs., while he is a massive 21 lbs.


However, in this case size really doesn't matter.


It's not how big you are -- but how you handle yourself -- and Domino comes out on top on this one! 



 Domino is very fastidious.  After a whapping always comes a washing!


 Dante patiently waits for Domino to finish her laundry ...


 ... so they can both relax.





 You will note how Domino always takes the superior position.




This way Dante has no choice but to look up to her.


No matter where they settle ...


... the view is pretty much the same.



Even when they're on a level playing field, Domino has the anterior position.



The only exception is when Dante is doing his business -- then Domino has his back.  She keeps a lookout for any possible introoders.


"How's it going back dere, sis?", asks Dante.



"I'd like to say all's cleer, but yoor fumes is cloudin' my vishun", replies Domino.



Change is always a good thing, especially if you're a DYNAMIC DUO.  So instead of watching his back, Domino keeps guard from a distance.

"Sumtimes efun Dynamic Duos needs a DUO-OVER", says she.

That is some mighty good picture taking. We love that Domino has the upper hand over Dante. There really is a huge difference in their size. Dante could just sit on Domino. Glad he doesn't Take care.

Domino, you rule the roost, as it should be (so says our angel Annie). :-)

Angel and Kirby said...

Domino, you look so tiny but rule with a mighty paw!

Kwee Cats and Life said...

So sweet! The girls here are smaller too. We love these sweet brother and sister :-)

The Monkeys said...

We love the photos. We have a similar dynamic between petite Bella (7 pounds) and large and still overweight Samson (19 pounds). Samson of course is in love with Bella but she is neutral.

Domino, you're such a pretty little girl and Dante, you know we just adore your handsome face.

Dante is such a gentle giant, I am sure he does not mind Domino taking the lead. Unlike here, where I have to FIGHT for first position with cats half Dante's size (and twice my own).

We love Domino's feistiness!

The ladycats always seem to be in charge. Our Kitty Yumbum was only 6lbs but she always kept us in order.

Domino better stay far back when he blows. HAH!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Ha ha ha! It's all about the Tiny Girl and her Iron Paw! What a beautiful Big Boy, though ;-)

Hilary said...

Thank you so much for leaving words of comfort for me on the passing of my beloved cat, Alex. Marc and I are heartbroken. We know we did the right thing, and every day we realize how much Alex was “preparing us” during the last few weeks, but it doesn’t make it any easier. We can’t stop the tears…. But having wonderful friends, like you, and the support of the CB is making it better….

PS - I will always cherish your Alex LOL posts :)

Way to go, Domino. I love it that you keep Dante in line. I am smaller than both my brothers, too, but I don't take any guff off either of them.
