3-D HIGHER-ARCHY: PAWN JUMPS QUEEN!
There is a definite ladder of catmand amongst my 3-Ds. Domino is the boss and runs a tight ship. She is not likely to furgive a transgression furry quickly either.
As these pictures will illustrate, Domino and Dante have a very nice relationship. Dante understands his place and gives tribute to her majesty gently and with great respect. As a result there is a harmonious balance between them.
Dylan, on the other paw, does not understand such things. Although he is the object of her derision on most occasions, he nefur seems to learn from expurrience. You will see his subsequent encounter with Domino where he invaded her purrsonal space much too closely, and bore the consequences (at least there were no scars this time). Peace is reinstated when there is sufficient distance between them, but the residual tension is obvious.
What I failed to capture was Dylan’s second attempt at intimacy with Domino. Although he is neutered, his instincts still come to the fur, and he relentlessly pursues Domino, generally by trying to jump on her back and bite her neck. This resulted in the most alarming of caterwauls emanating from her highness. This time Dylan escaped without harm, though he has purreviously been marked with the swipe of a small but mighty paw for contravening royal purrotocol. Indeed it was Domino who bore the brunt of this unwelcome encounter.
The culpurrit is pictured with the purrima facia evidence hanging from his mouth. He must learn that it’s best to leave the sofureign alone – not dangle her fur from his chops in such an unabashed manner. Next time it could well be the guillotine!
