Cats-Haiku

Updated on May 18, 2014

I never get tired of writing about my cats. With four of them, there is always something going on! I couldn't resist a chance to update everyones pictures, either! Having pets in your home shouldn't be only about their care. Reading about pets shouldn't always be about training and caring for them. Reading about them should also be about the fun and joy they bring. This hub is a collection of haiku inspired by my babies.

Room For 1 More!

one more sweet kitty

in a house already full

and bulging with love

Stalking!

Her body is coiled tight

She waits impatiently to

catch him unaware

Kitties!

a carefree gambol

between 2 kitties, as they

jump hug bite cry play

June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month

Check out Victoria Lynn's touching hub on adopting shelter cats. There are so very many animals looking for a foreverhome. We are still holding at four cats in my house but I have to admit to adding one more (outdoor) cat. He doesn't have a name, except for "Porch Cat" but he gets two meals a day and lots of affection!

Who said cats don't do anything?

I am never bored

watching them cavort around

and under my feet!

always finding a new spot....

Cat people

so many people

like to say they're dog people

til they've loved a cat

there is always someone to cuddle

Never enough pets

Although our home is bulging at the seam and there is almost always at least one furry friend getting into mischief, there is also at least one little fella to snuggle and play with. There are so many homeless pets, please consider adoption.

      Thank you so much! I have 4 (yes, I am a crazy cat lady!) I wanted to put their pictures here but they weren't having any of it so I had to borrow someone else's!

      This is so darling! I love the photos. I really like the poem about people being dog people until they get a cat. Many folks just don't know what they're missing. Thanks for the link to my adopting shelter cats hub! Wow! I think I'll link back here, too, to show people more of the joy of cats. Thanks so much. Voted up and everything else! Sharing, too!

      Cats can be fascinating. Seems they like to surprise their humans with a variety of antics. Thumbs up and sharing.

      Ah, Made, I remember when your kitty went missing :( So sorry you never found him. When I wrote this, I had a stray on my porch and I haven't seen him in 2 days. I pray he found a forever home! Thank you for stopping by!
