Haiku Friday 2/29/08

Haiku Friday

俳句の金曜日

Yay for today, day
two-hundred fifty-seven
smoke-free and joyful.

=^..^= =^..^= =^..^=

Bad kitty haiku
because of the night I had
when they were all bad.

First, the silky one.
He meowed and meowed and
made me want to cry.

After allowed sleep
for just 20 short minutes
the game was back on.

Now, the orange one.
Puking loudly. 2 AM.
Me? Awake, cleaning.

Back to sleep. Again.
Ah, but again, not for long.
Kitties are so bad.

This time the fat one,
loud growling at the orange one.
In cahoots, all three.

By then 3AM,
hoping for any reason
work would be canceled.

Sleep deprivation,
breaking me down and somehow
will extort more treats.

=^..^= =^..^= =^..^=

What the hell is this?
February twenty-ninth?
Happy Leap Year, Y'all!

  2. Our cats always seem to choose the middle of the night to do "battle cats" - running around chasing each other like nutballs. Grrr bad kitties.

  10. My kitties rule my life, too. I should follow your lead and do a blog post about that . . . Can you tell I think about blogging "a lot"? :P

    Thanks for commenting on my Haiku, too. :)

  12. Add my three to your bad kitty list. If they aren't chasing each other making a raucous they are trying to open the kids' doors to play in their rooms...sleeping childrens' rooms. Stupid cats.

  13. That sounds like life with a newborn. Is there a way to stick them each someplace & tell them to cut it out?
