Meet the Haiku by Cat and Haiku by Dog Poets for International Haiku Day

Today is International Haiku Day. Over on Catster and Dogster, you’ll get some insight into how the cats of Haiku by Cat celebrate and how the dogs of Haiku by Dog mark this awesome holiday.

Here on Life with Dogs and Cats, we thought we’d honor the day by posting haiku about each of the poet animals, expressing their personalities — and feature a few of their own favorite haiku:

    Hello, Susan, Tucker, Jasper, Lilah, Elsa Clair, Dawn, Calvin, and Athena! It’s Robin Whiskers! Last month I was one of the winners of the “guess what’s wrong with this picture” contest. Well, you know I have a blog, and on the right sidebar of the page I have a list of my favorite blogs, and Life With Dogs and Cats is one of those special blogs! Maybe we could do a blog interview or something, but’s it’s your choice.

    See ya soon!
