Buffy’s Haiku Tuesday #30: Mice are Faster Still

Buffy Cat here with my monthly haiku.
Default 3

The problem with cats is that they get the exact same look on their face whether they see a moth or an axe-murderer.

Love those cute lizards,
Fast and sometimes still as stone.
Mice are faster still…

Don’t ask me why Mom and Dad took all four lizards and two mice back outside. I thought they’d be happy to accept my gifts. I didn’t hurt any of them! Humans…

    I really love cats… but I was just saying last night to hubby that it is much easier to have only cats or only dogs. I don’t feel like I get enough cuddle time with the kitties (which I think they miss too) with the jealous dog always around. perhaps if they had all grown up together instead of being step children thrown together it would have been different. THey are cats though and do insist on cuddling despite the whining dog, just not as peacefully as when they were ‘only’ pets.

    very fun! and wow – I have not heard Paula Poundstone’s name in maybe two decades = and her line about cat’s was funny…

    and this was so cute: “I thought they’d be happy to accept my gifts….

    I always wanted a cat but my husband and oldest son are very allergic – and so we have always had only dogs – but cats are fun and Buffy’s poems highlight a bit of their wit!!! O_o
    have a nice day

    Purrrrr… thank you so much Kuruk! I’m glad you came by for a visit! I’m only blogging a little now, but it may pick up in the fall when it gets colder outside. Right now I like to just play in the summer air. ~Buffy

    Thank you very much “pack”… I believe I am becoming quite a hunter especially since I bring them in alive… that’s much harder (I think)! ~Buffy

    Cupcake, it’s just so much easier to play with my new friends in the walk-in shower… the lizards stay in there, but those mice just scamper right out! Outside huh Cupcake? Well, maybe… ~Buffy
