My Attempts at Haiku.

Over on the right:
My first attempt at a Haiku...

Printer comes alive.
Game time! Must kill paper mice,
shred... shred.. shred... What mess?

Give cat pill... visit
to outpatients. Remember!
No more pill for cat!

I wash your face in
the morning, so you are clean
to pamper me now!

Humans like furr-ball
gifts, they wrap them in tissue!
Today must leave more.

Black cat like magnet,
attracts light material.
Classic cat artwork.

Denim needs clawing.
I call it my cat artwork,
sure, it's a cat thing.

I dream of many
mice, running, hiding, a quick
pounce... and then no more.

A small Mraw gets your
attention, I have chosen
you to be my slave.

Other Cat Haiku

Negotiating No-man's land:
carpet alive.
Flea season again!

I need a new toy,
tail of 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.

Cat, fearless hunter
leaves 'presents' for me near door
next time I'll wear shoes!

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

Night. Now come night-mice.
I chase them 'round on loud feet.
You can't see them too?

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

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

The mighty hunter
returns with gifts of plump birds -
your foot just squashed one.

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

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

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

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 'tax return'?

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

Small brave carnivores,
kill pine cones and mosquitoes,
fear vacuum cleaner!

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

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

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

Oh no! 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 miaow out of angst,
"Thumbs! If only we had thumbs!
We could break so much!"

Litter tray not here?
You must have moved it again,
I'll go in the sink.

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

Yes, I spilled the tea,
but it was an accident.
I needed the spoon.

Rip! Tear! Shred! Destroy!
Oh no! Mommie's home! Look mom...
Bad dogs! Very bad dogs!

* I puff up my tail
at the cat in the bathroom.
What is a mirror?

* I only want you
To pay attention to me...
when I want you to.
