Here are pictures of Domino out to scout what she considers to be hers.  This includes our next-door neighbour's porch, which is (unfortunately) very close in proximity to our own.

Domino is a very nosey type.  If she could she would actually go inside -- and she has from time to time, when the neighbour hasn't been on guard.  She has scooted right in the open front door as they are entering or exiting.  She just loves to snoop!  She has done the same thing with other neighbours -- and I only hear about it afterwards.

So, here she is making the usual rounds next door.  Domino gives new meaning to the word "nosey" by sniffing everything quite thoroughly, as well as doing her visual inspection.

Domino navigates the short distance between our property and next door.

Like many in the neighbourhood, they still have their Christmas lights up and this requires a thorough inspection by Miss Domino.

She is a lighting expurrt after all -- actually she fancies herself expurrt on most everything!

Is this wiring safe?

Certainly smells good anyway!

Time to let the pawpawrazzi get a shot!

Domino doing her impression of a Peeping Tomasina!
This is the height of nosiness. 
(There are two kitties who live there, by the way, and have been known to communicate through the glass from time to time.)

Domino decides to make her way slowly back home.  The bush needs inspecting first, though.

Domino pauses to inhale its scent deeply!

Then she finally takes the plunge back into the snow.

Now that she's totally satisfied that everything's in order, it's just a short jaunt back home, where the smells are all too familiar.  She likes a little bit of the strange now and then, and luckily we have very strange neighbours.

Amy & the house of cats said...

Wow Domino, you really are quite nosey aren't you! I am sure my kitties would be too if they went outside - and we all like to snoop every once in a while I am sure!

What a nosey Nancy! Spaz (mama's black outside kitty) likes to nose around the neighborhood from time to time, as well. He used to sleep in people's garages and leave presents in their gardens, too!

Snoopervising is a lot of fun, Domino!

Lisa + current cat said...

It's especially important to sniff where other cats live, and Domino, you are doing a great job there with that. Very brave of you to traverse that cold snow to make your appointed rounds.

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

That's not nosey Domino, you are just checking that everything is as it should be in your neighbourhood. Someone has to do it.

One garden is just not enough when you have to share it with three cats. We have taken over our neighbours garden too. He is very thrilled about that. He must be, because he doesn't have any cats himself.

Cindy said...

She is just so beautiful. Do the neighbors mind her wanderings?

It's Domino's world, she just lets us inhabit it.

Strange smells are always best!

Domino you're a cat after my own heart. I'm extremely nosy. I read about it in my first cat manual and have been practicing it ever since.

I'm not as brave as you though!
