    CAT HAIKUS

    The food in my bowl
    Is old, and more to the point
    Contains no tuna.


    So you want to play.
    Will I claw at dancing string?
    Your ankle's closer.


    There's no dignity
    In being sick - which is why
    I don't tell you where.


    Seeking solitude
    I am locked in the closet.
    For once I need you.


    Tiny can, dumped in
    Plastic bowl. Presentation,
    One star; service: none.


    Am I in your way?
    You seem to have it backwards:
    This pillow's taken.


    Your mouth is moving;
    Up and down, emitting noise.
    I've lost interest.


    The dog wags his tail,
    Seeking approval. See mine?
    Different message.


    My brain: walnut-sized.
    Yours: largest among primates.
    Yet, who leaves for work?


    Most problems can be
    Ignored. The more difficult
    Ones can be slept through.


    My affection is
    conditional. Don't stand up,
    It's your lap I love.


    Cats can't steal the breath
    Of children. But if my tail's
    Pulled again, I'll learn.


    I don't mind being
    Teased, any more than you mind
    A skin graft or two.


    So you call this thing
    Your "cat carrier." I call
    These my "blades of death."


    Toy mice, dancing yarn
    Meowing sounds. I'm convinced:
    You're an idiot...

    --------
    While I don't have a cat as I'm terribly allergic, and I'm terribly devoted to my doggies, I thought these were cute...

    ...wonder if there are dog haikus...

    Thank you - they are so funny and so true, I laughed out loud, I am a cat person, and will send these on to other cat people.

    The cat is not all
    Bad. She fills the litter box
    With Tootsie Rolls...

    Thanks for putting this on the board. I have an 11 year old cat. But she eats off of Corelle plates. lol Plastic can sometimes cause feline acne. Her water goes in a big soup bowl.

    Hugs,

    I loved this! Thanks for sharing. I needed a laugh today. I have four cats and each has a distinct personality. I read somewhere that humans don't own cats, cats own humans and that is so true!
    Have a great day!
