Those are great! This one is the story of my life:

In deep sleep hear sound
Cat vomit hairball somewhere.
Will find in morning.

I love poetry, It's a wonderful form of expression. Haiku is easy to make up.I made up more, one for each of my cats. This is Bonesie's, I was lost, you took me in, shivering violently, now I'm warm. This one is Tigger's, Wer'e so tiny,On the road, crying loudly, you saved us. This is one for Hootie's sister, Kisses, On the rooftop I will stay, till I'm tired, you get me down. Inky's is this ,I purr all day, and run about, I belong to you, you are mine. All you have to do is think of their indiviual personality quirks or how they came into your life, come on you guys you can do it!!!! hootiecat

Here they are, from dribbleglass.com

Cat Haiku

Someone once said, "Thousands of years ago, cats were worshipped as gods. Cats have never forgotten this." Along those lines, what follow are haiku about those sometimes confounding felines.

You never feed me.
Perhaps I'll sleep on your face.
And that will show you.

You must scratch me there!
Yes, above my tail! Behold,
Elevator butt.

I need a new toy.
Tail of a black dog keeps good time.
Pounce! Good dog! Good dog!

The rule for today.
Touch my tail, I shred your hand.
New rule tomorrow.

In deep sleep hear sound
Cat vomit hairball somewhere.
Will find in morning.

Grace personified
I leap into the window
I meant to do that.

Blur of motion, then...
Silence, me, a paper bag
What is so funny?

Wanna go outside.
Oh, no! Help! I got outside!
Let me back inside!

The mighty hunter
Returns with gifts of plump birds
Your foot just squashed one.


No matter how much cats fight, there always seem to be plenty of kittens.

Abraham Lincoln

You're always typing
Well, let's see you ignore me
Sitting on your hands.

My small cardboard box
You cannot see me if I
Can just hide my head.

Terrible battle
I fought for hours. Come and see!
What's a term paper?

Kitty likes plastic
Confuses for litter box
Don't leave tarp around.

Small brave carnivores
Kill pine cones and mosquitos
Fear vacuum cleaner.

Want to trim my claws?
Don't even think about it!
My yelps wake the dead.

I want to be close
to you. Can I fit my head
inside your armpit?

Oh no! My Big One
has been trapped by newspaper.
Cat to the rescue.

Humans are so strange.
Mine lies still in bed, then screams!
My claws aren't that sharp...

Cats meow out of angst
"Thumbs! If only we had thumbs!
We could break so much."

Litter box not here
You moved it on me again
I'll crap in the sink

The Big Ones snore now
Every room is dark and cold
Time for "Cup Hockey."

You will be so proud
When I bring you a rat at
The head of the bed.

We're almost equals
I purr to show I love you
Want to smell my butt?

i think i'll add my own...

Cats are curious
Always getting in trouble...
Where's my new sweater?

Thanks for taking the trouble to write them out Brenda.
I can relate to most of them. 'rule of the day' strikes many a chord.

You're welcome, Alexis. I just did the copy and paste thing. I love haiku, they're so simple yet absolutely true.
