Haiku by Cat: Conjurer

Haiku by Cat: mysterious cat / hidden within the shadows / conjures more mischief

Today’ haiku is by Calvin.

Sometimes you can tell by the look in their eyes. A certain glint. A flash of inspiration. Or maybe it’s the way they hold themselves, tightly wound like they’re about to spring.

Sometimes they see right through you, and you see right into their heads where the gears are spinning and the plots are hatching.

Sometimes you can guess what they’re thinking: calculating angle and momentum of the jump required to get to the top of the fridge, or debating the relative risks of snagging the hamburger left thawing on the counter.

Sometimes, you know they’re up to something: a something that you know–and they know–is more than likely going to cause mayhem.

In today’s Haiku by Cat, Calvin is considering his next mischievous move from within the cat tunnel.

How can you tell when your pets are planning trouble?
