Cat Haiku

The food in my bowl

Is old, and more to the point

Contains no tuna.

Cat Haikus So you want to play.

Will I claw at dancing string?

Your ankle’s closer.

Cat Hiaku

By Tabitha King (

There’s no dignity

In being sick: which is why

I don’t tell you where.

Cat Hiaku

Seeking solitude

I am locked in the closet.

For once I need you.

Cat Haikus

Tiny can, dumped in Plastic bowl

Presentation, One star;

service: none.

Cat Haiku

 Am I in your way?

You seem to have it backwards:

This pillow’s taken.

Cat Haiku

The dog wags his tail,

Seeking approval. See mine?

Different message.

Cat Haiku

Your mouth is moving;

Up and down, emitting noise.

I’ve lost interest.

Cat Haiku

My brain: walnut-sized.

Yours: largest among primates.

Yet, who leaves for work?

Cat Haiku

Most problems can be

Ignored. The more difficult

Ones can be slept through.

Cat Haiku

My affection is conditional.

Don’t stand up,

It’s your lap I love.

Cat Haiku

Cats can’t steal the breath

Of children. But if my tail’s

Pulled again, I’ll learn.

Cat Haiku

I don’t mind being

Teased, any more than you mind

A skin graft or two.

Cat Haikus

So you call this thing

Your cat carrier. I call

These my blades of death.

Cat Haiku

Toy mice, dancing yarn

Meowing sounds.

I’m convinced: You’re an idiot.
