My 3-Ds are basically a very friendly bunch.  I credit this to their ongoing exposure to folks who stop by to say hello when we're sitting out in our front yard.

This series of photos is just an example of what takes place on a daily basis.

Dante is missing from this shoot because he was busy checking things out elsewhere in the yard.

Domino sees we have company coming.

It's our friend and neighbour (from across the street), Susan!  Domino loves Susan, and Susan is very fond of Domino despite her allergies to cats.

Susan's son, Nathan, also dropped by on his way home from school.  At the same time, our friend and neighbour, Erika paused from her jogging to stop for a pat or two.  (Nathan was overheard asking his Mom why they didn't have a cat -- of course the allergies have something to do with it.)

Dylan says "Scratch right here, I'm a liddle itchy!"

Then he rolls over to give Erika better access.

A little head butt elicits more pats, too!

And some lovey eyes just cements it!

Domino wants in on the action, but can't decide if she should check Nathan out first, or share Erika's attention with that pesky brother of hers.

In the end, she hesitates a little too long (as she always does).

Dylan bids a sad farewell to Erika!   Maybe he'll see her more often now that the nice weather is here.

And Domino is off to check out greener pastures!

Happy Caturday Efurryone!

It's so nice to meet and greet your neighPURRS! Also to be good ambassadors of felinity!

That is so great that those people and neighbors come to visit the cats. When anyone comes here, we are off in one hundred directions. We are very scart of strange people. If only some would come and we could learn that people would scratch us. We like those pictures. Have a great day and a fine Mother's day.

With cats like the D's we are not surprised all the neighbours like to visit.

Aww you have nice neighbours! We love it when our neighbours visit, but we don't get it often because we spend all our time indoors.

Happy Mother's Day, Wendy!

You are lucky to have such nice friends!

Wow, it's like a party every day at your house. That never happens here because mom makes everyone stay in the backyard. Sigh. And I can only go out on the itsy bitsy deck. Double sigh.

You kitties are much more friendly than we are...if we someone when we're outside (which isn't nearly as often as you guys), we turn and run back in the house! MOL

Purrs and hugs,
