Marvelous Monday Haiku: Sounds of Summer Memories

Earl Grey was out and about by himself this weekend and really showed us what tenacity he has. I felt compelled to follow along and capture his catio walk, just in case he needed that extra nudge in the right direction. He is thinner than before but still seems to have strength in his legs, determined to make that jump, despite his blindness.

Just minutes before in the kitchen, he was reclining on his cardboard scratcher and I thought, “he’ll probably be there all day and won’t move.” I proceeded to play the album Music for Cats, which I used to play all Summer last year for kitties’ pleasure. All of a sudden he was alert and climbed down from the scratcher and slowly edged his way down the stairs toward the laundry room, which is the gateway to the catio. Read More

Marvelous Monday Haiku: Summer Highlights

Hello, my name is Scout, the Tortie and I present this week’s Marvelous Monday Haiku. Summer is the season favoured by most of my pals and until we see the first hint of yellow or red leaves in our catio, in the coming weeks we will be highlighting some of the best times we had this summer. The humans had extended our catio with some extra tunnels this year and we had plenty of zoomie sessions chasing each other in there. My favourite season is Fall because I am known to ‘decorate’ the house with all sorts of pretty leaves and I collect the best ones for the Big Man Cat which he loves, I think.

Marvelous Monday Haiku debut with Jimmy

Happy Monday all! I’m Jimmy the polydactyl cat and I’d like to introduce you to our new Weekly Chirp called Marvelous Monday Haiku. Why Monday? Well, Monday is the day the Lady Cat finds incredibly hard to ease into, especially after spending the weekend with us Chirpy Cats. So a bunch of us have decided that we will be writing some inspiring and uplifting haiku to help her get going and uplift her spirits, in addition to her morning coffee. And what’s so ‘marvelous’ about Monday? Well, nothing really, after all, she has to go back to work and leave us. See, we could have named it Melancholic Monday or Mediocre Monday, and while it might be true, that would be defeating the whole purpose. Besides, that’s just plain depressing. So, why haiku? Well, if cats could speak, we would pretty much communicate in haiku, no beating around the bush: “My bowl is empty, Feed me now my human slave, Next time be quicker” you get my drift. Haiku is a very short form of Japanese poetry which follows the pattern 5-7-5, meaning the first line contains five syllables, second line, 7 and the last line has five.

I’m kicking off with just a gallery of four photos for my haiku debut. See below and let’s hope that this little corner will start her day on the right footing and hopefully, brighten yours too.

  • Cat in the tunnelMorning seeks the sun
    Follow me my whiskers kiss
    All your woes goodbye.
  • Cat lies on his backBelly up for you
    I promise it's not a trap
    I want to hug you.
  • Jimmy the cat near plantsThreadbare swaying in winds
    The lush green songs of summer
    Fading into Fall?
  • Cat lying in grass.A jewel for you
    Monday morning eye goobers
    Bath time is later

Do you like Mondays? What do you do to get going in the mornings? Let’s hear it from the kitties and their humans in the comments below.
