Today’s haiku is by Lilah.
While my cats and dogs don’t always spend time together, they do share space. Sometimes happily, sometimes grudgingly.
Part of the challenge is they don’t speak the same language. For example, when a dog wags her tail, it means she’s happy. When a cat wags her tail, it means she’s irritated. They can’t read each other, and don’t understand each other. But they respect each other.
So despite the differences in language, background, size and worldview, the animals in my house get along. They agree to disagree. And they share couches, laps and people.
As for me —the human in the bunch — I just love being able to watch them all interact. Life with dogs and cats is never dull, and usually full of warmth and love.
