Monday Haiku: The Pathway to Purrfection

cat ponders about perfection and what it is

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…

  • cat is looking perturbedWhat is perfection?
    Beauty lies in this chaos
    Colorful and bright
  • cat ponders about perfection and what it isWhy should I lay still?
    In my purrfect tabby pose
    Not a hair gone astray
  • cat rollinng in leavesI throw caution to the wind
    A crunchy mess in my furs
    Rolling in petals
  • cat lies in autumn leavesYoga in the leaves
    I have found my perfection
    In my disarray

To start your Monday on the right paw, have a perfect day, but be sure to add a dash of “a little less perfect” and a pinch of “disarray”. Your state of mind will thank you for it.

With Love from

Mr. Jack (CCSF)
