We hope our Meowvelous Monday Haiku and
other poems put back the spring in your step
to start off the week on the right paw…
or left paw…. oh well, it doesn’t really matter
because 10% of us cats are ambidextrous.

Dreaming of a long Summer: Monday Haiku

Last updated May 23rd, 2018

There’s a lot going on in the backyard. If Freddy the groundhog is not teasing us, then it’s the blackbirds taunting with their noisy songs and messy eating habits, flinging their bird seed all over the place. But today there’s something else happening. The humans are out lifting, digging in the earth, looking very busy. I wonder if they also like digging up scrumptious earthworms like I do. But I think they’re getting the garden ready and if that’s the case then that makes me one very happy cat.  Read More

Meowvelous Monday Haiku: The Purrfect Getaway For Your Cat

Last updated January 12th, 2019

cat's purrfect getaway in catio condo

What do you think is the purrfect getaway for your cat?

Your imagination may be running wild, thinking of places where there are endless fields of catnip with birds swooping overhead and sinful amounts of cat treat buffets! But you may be getting ahead of yourself there. I’m thinking more local, you know, just a home away from home, a place to relax for a few hours, catch some sun, not too far away from my food bowl. Just maybe a few feet away. Yes, I’m a simple cat, not asking much. In fact, like most cats, we pretty much make ourselves comfortable everywhere we happen to stamp our paw prints with our little jellybeans you love so much.  Read More

Birthday Haiku from Earl Grey who turns 17!

Last updated December 31st, 2018

Happy birthday to Earl Grey

Earl Grey turns 17 today and he has a few words of wisdom for his younger purry pals. He’s made old bones but he’s mostly done things his way. Today he is still King of his castle even though a frail body says otherwise. We are blessed to have this handsome old boy in our lives and we cherish every moment with him.  Read More

Meowvelous Monday Haiku: Icicle Crunch Sundae hits the right spot for Ollie

Last updated January 14th, 2019

When life hands you icicles, make an icicle crunch sundae.

It’s Ollie here and I’m presenting this week’s Meowvelous Monday Haiku. We’re in a cold snap at the moment but I don’t let that freeze my lifestyle. I spent a good portion of yesterday chasing icicles. It’s quite fun actually and pretty soon I had my pals join in the fun too. My brother Baggy was a little miffed that he didn’t start it first. After all, he is the king of testing gravity.  Read More

Monday Haiku: Jumpstart into Spring

Last updated March 12th, 2018

Nothing feels as good
As a leap into freedom
From winter’s shackles

I’m feeling revitalized and supercharged after a long winter. I’m ready to get moving and exploring. I don’t care if they say there’s more snow to come, just let me enjoy this moment here and now. Very soon the vine buds will show and the scent will be irresistible. This is my space. This is the Vine Corner.  Read More

Monday Haiku: Say it Simply With Affirmations

Charlie takes that step forward

We don’t do New Year’s resolutions – it’s a heavy burden that can weigh you down. Now not to burst your resolution bubble at all, we do have an alternative pathway that allows for more fluidity. Because life is not stagnant. Sometimes your goals need to shift gears too and may steer you in a different direction.

Instead, we like to use affirmations, because it’s evolving, shifting and changing according to whatever life’s tide washes your way. Affirmations will allow you to reach your goals, trailing along many pathways while keeping it crystal clear. But all these pathways lead to your end goal, and before you know it you’ve accomplished your goal, hey wait…. you’ve actually made a resolution and stuck to it, without even knowing it! Read More

Monday Haiku: The Pathway to Purrfection

Last updated November 9th, 2017

Hello furriends! Happy Monday from me, Mr. Jack. If you know anything about me, you know that my main tasks here at the Chirpy household is to keep the peace and spread the communal scent through grooming everyone in my path, heck, even human feet. But that is not the only reason I groom. I also like to groom my coat to keep it in tip-top shape for my selfies. I like my fur and whiskers all in place. But there comes a time when striving for perfection can become stifling, exhausting and rather energy-draining. In today’s haiku, I leave you with my eye-opening realization as I lay on a bed of Autumn leaves… Read More

Monday Haiku: Fall, A Tortie’s Best Friend

Last updated June 22nd, 2018

Hello, it’s Scout here and I present this week’s Marvelous Monday Haiku. Fall is my favorite time of the year because I like to collect leaves and bring them inside for the Big Man Cat while he works. I think he appreciates the sentiment. My job as interior decorator is made so much easier too because the catio is one messy jungle with an array of different colored leaves ranging from the rich chartreuse of the Kolomikta Kiwi vine to the browns and reds from the tree. Some really stoic, cheery sunflowers are still out and have not given up and the heady scent from the purple catmint blooms gives Mr. Jack sunset zoomies in the tunnel.

Marvelous Monday Haiku with Scout

Hello, friends, I’m Scout the feisty tortie and I present today’s Marvelous Monday Haiku. When you don’t have to go to school or work there’s nothing much to worry about other than where to find the best sun puddles at 10 am, why Charlie seems to get special food and why yellow fluffy bees bother me while I’m trying to take a snooze. I know these woes, though real, pale in comparison to a human’s daily lamenting about things like Mondays, traffic, bosses, and bills. Read More
