The 3-Ds are out on a rare sunny day in late November, but are still steeled against the chill with wool hats on their heads -- not to mention their fashion sense (which warms their hearts)!

This week, Dante has chosen a stylish dark purple wool flatcap, and has coordinated it with a purple paisley bowtie, not to mention the purple finch that seems to be attracted to his colour choice!

"Yoor nuttin' but a PURRple pussy!" mocks the finch.

 Dylan has been pheasantly surprised by his feathered friend who seems to approve of his navy pork pie hat and navy-with-orange paisley bowtie!

"C'mon, strut yoor stuff -- like me!"  shouts the pheasant.

Domino is wearing a beaded flappurr-style necklace and a faux leopard-print beret with black bow adornment, and is carrying a leopard-print and black leather bag (also faux).   "Is not faux nuttin' dat I has a hawk as a furiend"  says she.

"Togeddah we keeps our eyes on fings, an' dat's why dey calls us
da NeighPURRhood Watch!"

The 'mewted' tones of the fallen leaves make a good background for our creamy, dreamy Dylan.

Here he is at ease in this tranquil setting. 

 Until something (only known to him) arouses his sense of danger.

The wider the ears spread apart, the more dangerous the situation -- even if it's in your own backyard!

The 3-Ds are all outside on a chilly late fall day.  They needed something more than just hats to warm them up today!

Dante's sporting a tweed and suede flatcap in browns and rusts, with a paisley bowtie in coordinating tones.  He's grown a moustache to keep his lips warm, too.

One of Dante's favourite hot beverages is a good old CATpuccino.  Truth be told he really only likes the frothy milk on top, so now he has a milk moustache instead, as well as some dribbles on his chin!

 "Oh well", says Dante.  "At leest I kin suck all da milk outta my musstash aftahwards. Waste not, want not, yoo know!"

 Dylan's wearing a brown tweed flatcap with blue and dark brown stripes, along with a plaid bowtie in matching colours.

He prefers a coffee latte float for his warmer-upPURR, and unlike Dante he is keeping his moustache clean by using a plastic spoon.

"I'm very PURRticular about MY musstash", says he. "I likes ta keep it PURRistine!"

And finally, there's Domino on the front porch chair  She is wearing (over her medium-length black wig) a knit hat in black and gray adorned with a black silk flower.  Her necklace, also in blacks and grays, is quite avante garde, as is her black-and-white shoulder bag.

Domino is calmly sipping on a hot cup of catnip tea.  "Is very soothin' yoo know", says she, "unless I drinks too much an' den ...

... I REELY gets 'wiggy-wif-it!'"

I thought Domino made a lovely silhouette while standing on the front steps.

First she stares off into the distance. 

Then she gazes straight into my eyes.

Finally, after turning away ...

... she 'heads' in the right direction ...

... rather than 'left', that is!

Dylan's dilemma is that he's on one side of the tree and ...

(biggify for best view)

... the squirrel's on the other.

And never the twain shall MEAT!

The 3-Ds are at it again -- wearing hats while being cats!

Dante is wearing a charcoal tweed flatcap on his gorgeous red head, with a dark and light gray wide-striped bowtie.  Dante thinks he looks quite dappurr and dignified.

Dante's squirrel friend, though, thinks otherwise.  He passes comment on Dante's general appearance but doesn't want to wait around for the inevitable response.   "Wot a silly schnook!" says the squirrel ...

... as he hotfoots it outta there!

Dylan is sporting a taupe and brown plaid flatcap which goes so well with his overall colouring.  He has added a brown, blue and orange plaid bowtie in coordinating tones for that little bit of "je ne sais quoi".

Dylan's squirrel friend has a snack on the birdseed, but doesn't want to wait around to become a snack himself so ...

... he hightails it outta there!
"So long suckah!" he yells as he flees.

Meanwhile Domino is at home, all dressed and ready to go out.  She is wearing a dark teal wool cloche hat on her pretty little head, and a silver necklace with a black and teal pendant, and a coordinating handbag,  Such fashion!

Her pet parakeet is her biggest supporter and thinks Domino is simply divine!   He has the last word about her before flying off to safety.

"Domino's a Diva -- squawk!
Domino's a Diva!"

Dylan's on the back yard patio surveying the fallen leaves all around him.

 "Wot a mess!" he declares.

 "Yoor not gonna leaf it like dis."

"Are yoo???"
