Midnight gives a lecture on the important things in life: naps, good food, affection freely shared and living in the moment.

Cee challenges us to share a photograph of anyone or anything catching a few ZZZs.  Midnight was happy to oblige!

Cat Senryu : Whiskers

purrs, whiskers happy

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

In researching doing challenges (in preparation for doing a cat haiku challenge), I came across Lost in Translation’s Photo Challenge.  While her challenge is for a month, she puts out several words people can choose from in responding to the challenge.

Her theme choices for October are:

  • mountainous
  • whiskers
  • crumbling
  • spanning
  • immaculate

No surprise, I chose whiskers.  My photo is Teddy, Carol’s cat.

Daily Haiku / Senryu : Tame


Pinkie is not tamed
snarling, biting a close hand
warning done, she purrs

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

I admit Pinkie is schizoid.  When she was a kitten, she once brought home a baby rattlesnake.  Scared mom who killed it right away.

When you try to pet Pinkie she doesn’t know whether she should bite you or purr so she does both.  She prefers to be petted with your foot.  Crazy cat. But if you’re sick, she’ll lie by you all day, keeping you company without complaining.  That’s when she knows exactly what to do.
