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.
As I peer out from the catnip tunnel, my thoughts are racing with all the things I shall be doing this summer. The catnip is still young and fresh, and the vine is in its infancy, but I look forward to chasing bugs on a hot summer’s evening and stretching my paw to touch one of the smiling faces of a tall sunflower. Who knows, someday I might be able to reach that squirrel!
All my pals were out relaxing and feeling that sense of anticipation for a long and glorious summer. We share our thoughts with you in my gallery of haiku below.
How about you? How do you intend to spend your Summer?
Happy Monday from Mr. Jack

Thank you! The humans are making lots of noise, they seem to be up to something out here, not sure yet.
We love summer because the windows are opened and we have a better view of Bird TV…no matter how messy they are.

I must admit – we dream about short summers. Not my favorite season 😉 Love your haiku though!

Heh heh hey you fellas, I like your Haiku, please keep it coming! MOL. You’re right about that, sometimes the humans complain it’s too hot and they want Fall to come too soon. The human Lady Cat likes it hot cos she comes from a hot climate and also because we get too much snow in winter!
Guess what, Mr Jack?!? My cats are getting a new catio soon. It’s currently being built. We don’t have a fabulous backyard like you do, so it won’t look anything like yours. But some of your haikus will definitely apply for my kitties soon!

Whaaaat!? That’s furntastic news! I am doing my mad dash zoomie laps round and round in the catio for the Three Chatty cats (plus 2!)that’s how happy I am! Yes, more kitties with catios, it’s going to be so much fun and we can’t wait to see it. xx Mr. Jack
You look so content! I wish we could go outside in a catio.
You are a master of Haiku, Mr. Jack. I wish I could sit beside you in your catio. We get those squawking black birdies here too. Mom thinks their nesting in our tree. They sure talk a lot. Don’t they ever tire? Tee hee hee. Luvs and tail wiggles.

Bird TV is just the best! Hope you’ll have an amazing summer in the newly decorated garden!
Oh the anticipation of it all ! We are very much looking forward to it as well. We will hopefully be spending time at the beach and on the hiking trails. Lovely Haiku Jack!
