Haiku by Cat: Guard

Haiku by Cat: beware the beast who / guards the ascent; only those / deemed worthy may pass

Today’s haiku is by Dawn.

Approach the guardian of the ascent with a pure heart, for She can see into your soul.

Do not come armed, but instead bring gifts and offerings to demonstrate your generosity and kindness, for She will judge your worthiness.

Walk gently, treading lightly upon the hallowed ground, for She is armed with tooth and claw, honed on those with whom She’s displeased.

And it can’t hurt to bring a mousie toy for an easy distraction.

Are your pets ever in the way when you need to get from one place to the other in your home?

    Always! Lily went out of her way to trip me a couple of days ago. She’s just lucky I didn’t land on her when I fell. Hugs, Janet

    By the way — the cat shelves on our blog post today were ordered from Catastrophic Creations. They had a display at BlogPaws. They are the company that make that Indiana Jones Bridge. We’ve had the shelves up for about 2 weeks now, and they have been a huge hit! Will be writing more about them on Friday’s blog post.

    • Ah, yes. I love their work. I was just about to order a whole slew of stuff from them, but a change in my job status meant I had to postpone. I want that Indiana Jones bridge so bad. I have the perfect place for it, too!
