Haiku by Cat: Glass

Haiku by Cat: if not for this glass--cruel impassable window--squirrel, you would be mine

Today’s Haiku is by Calvin.


Lounge-style cat scratchers are lined up in front of the sliding glass doors in our kitchen. At any given daylight moment, at least one is likely to be occupied.

While the bench in our family room is right in front of the Pet Entertainment Center (also known as a picture window) and permanently tuned to the Bird and Squirrel Channel, the cats also enjoy the view from the kitchen onto the deck.

Not much happens on the deck, but every once in a while, a chipmunk scurries across on her way to the bird feeders in the shade garden.

And sometimes, if a cat is very lucky, he can find himself eye-level with a squirrel.


Do your pets like looking out the window? What do they like to watch the most?

  1. The windows are famous here! Both the cats and the huskies enjoy watching the birds and squirrels run around. Most likely trying to plot a way to break the window and chase them! BOL!

    What a lovely morsel that would make if you could just get at him. The squirrels constantly tease and taunt us when we are on the Catio. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
