When Domino is outside, she is such a busy bee.  She doesn't have much time to sit still, except when there are pats to be had.

Today, I am going to show you a typical day in Domino's life.  Remember, she is Queen of her domain (and most of our neighbours', too)!

This is Domino LOOKING FORWARD to the day ahead.

She starts out with a nice walk on the fence.

It's good exercise, but you can also keep an eye on everything from up there -- especially the next-door neighbour's yard.

Next, Domino senses something untoward, so she walks toward it.  Go figure!

It's paint!  We hired a painter to redo the wood trim around all the windows (in the ivory colour), and to repaint all the doors and shutters (in the deep green).

Domino gives the painter a dirty look.  She wants him to know she won't tolerate such a mess on her proPURRty.

Then Domino spots Daddy and rushes over to take advantage of an oPURRtunity for a good scratch. 

And she rolls around on the patio just for the fun of it!

Here's a short video of Domino and Daddy.  The funny thing is that Mommy had the hiccups while she was filming it -- you may notice the camera jump once or twice.

When all is quiet once more, Domino stops to pay homage to Kitty Buddha by bowing before his altar.

And then she's off to see what she can find on the other side of the house.

Who should she run into, but Dante, sitting on the grass right beside Stone Kitty.  Domino gives the spot a good sniff to make sure there haven't been any introoders.

And then she she pauses briefly to give her brother a sweet little kiss!

But enough of that -- she's off!

Domino tests the grasses in the neighbour's yard to see if they taste any different.

Then she checks out the work that they are doing, and tries to detect who has been this way before her.

Domino always appreciates someplace new to sit and survey the neighPURRhood.

After such a busy day filled with fence-walking, brick-rolling, snooping, sniffing and general surveillance, Domino returns home to contemplate her good fortune.

Thank Kitty Buddha -- life is good!
