Dylan likes to do the 'rite' thing.  And now that it's Spring, he's within his 'rites' to do it.

 "Spurring is all about sniffin' an' markin'", says Dylan.

 "Furst yoo gets yoor nose up reel close an' inhales deeply."

 "An' den yoo rubs yoor muzzle on it ta obliterate any uddah smells but yoor own."

"It allways makes me blush!" sighs Dylan.

We salute you, Dylan.  You get high marks for asserting your 'rites' in such a pawsitive manner!

Oh dear, looks like we spoke too soon.

It seems that Dylan has really gone to pot!

Domino went out for her first territorial tour since the snow started to melt.

Here she is, casting a long shadow, on her triumphant return from her more distant territories across the street.

 "It still ain't no walk in da park!" says she.

"I still hasta navigate dese icy bits."

"But dere's no turnin' back now.  Wintah is defunitely a fing of da passed!"

"Even da clock says so."

The 3-Ds are so happy that sunnier days are here!  This is reflected in their choice of hats and accoutrements.

 Dante has chosen an orange, brown and gray plaid pork-pie hat and has paired it with a gray and apricot-striped bowtie.  He's glad he doesn't need to wear a woolly scarf any more.  His native fur coat doesn't seeming to be thinning quite yet though, so he's anxious to discard some of that, as well.

"Anywun need sum wool?", asks he.

 Dylan's sporting spats (no less) on his toesies and a plum herringbone tweed captain's hat on his head, which he has coordinated with a similarly-toned and striped bowtie.  He also wanted to keep his front paws covered and has selected some leopard-print mittens which are apparently doing the trick.

"I'm jus' plum tired a wintah" declares Dylan.

Domino has opted for some vibrant colour!  She is bored with all the dull winter tones, and has selected a bright turquoise hat with multi-coloured band, and a scarf which picks up the same hues.  For an extra little flair, she has tied a turquoise ribbon around her tail.  Whenever she moves it (her tail, that is), she feels very swish!

"Since I doan has a coat-a-many-colours, I hasta make my own", explains Domino.

So colourful cats unite!  It's time to take a bite out of winter.

The weather has turned warmer and there's a whole lot of melting going on outside.  Finally!

The 3-Ds have taken the opportunity to explore their domain -- at least as far as the remaining piles of snow will allow them.

So I took the opportunity to take some 3-D portraits.

Domino purrched on the front porch chair to get some fresh air.  She didn't even need a sweater or jacket to keep her warm.  What joy!

Dylan's wide eyes took in all of the new sights and his nose is at-the-ready for sniffing out all those new smells.  There have definitely been some changes since the last time he was out and about.  How heavenly!

Dante, too, was up for some fresh air experience.  His world is just beginning to expand once again. Soon the garden will peek out from under the snow.  Hip, hip hooray!

To borrow some nonsensical, yet seemingly apt words from 'Jabberwocky':

"O frabjous day.  Callooh!  Callay!"

The 3-Ds are heartened by slightly warmer tempurratures and sunny skies.

Dante's on the lookout for Spurring in his blue-gray cadet hat and denim neckerchief.  "I kin keep an eye out for Spurring and doo sum birdwatchin' at da same time!" says he enthusiastically.

And this little guy is sure getting a kick out of Dante watching him!

 Dylan isn't too confident that Spurring is on its way.  He's hunkered down in a brown woven trappurr hat and a matching snowflake scarf with pom-poms.  "I'll beleeves it wen I ackshully sees it", says he. "Until den I'll jus' dream about it."

And what a dream it is!

Domino is much more optimistic.  "I do beleeve dat Spurring is down da street an' around da cornah!", says Domino wearing springlike pink.  She has on a knit cadet hat with coordinating scarf fastened with a tuxy brooch.  She's also sporting little pink mittens to keep her forepaws  (well, only two, actually) toasty.

And if you can see around corners, you just might see this!
