Haiku by Cat: Mine

Haiku by Cat: if I lay on it / it is mine, no matter / how much you need itToday’s Haiku by Cat is by Athena.

Yesterday was Read Across America Day, which is celebrated on Theodor Geisel’s birthday. If you don’t know who Theodor Geisel is, you may want to ask  Horton, the Lorax, Bartholomew Cubbins or perhaps even the Whos in Whoville.

Dr. Seuss wrote many of my favorite children’s books, including The Cat in the Hat.

And, in honor of  his birthday, I asked my cats to pose wearing a hat. Or even curled up inside a hat.

But cat being cat,

And you know about that,

The best I could get

Was a cat on a hat.

Athena has no interest in moving  so I can keep my head warm when I venture out yet again into the winter-that-has-outstayed-its-welcome. I should know better than to put my hat on a chair.

Do your pets ever lay on your things? And if so, do you make them move or find a way to manage without the laid-upon item?

    Cats are the absolute worst offenders, us dogs don’t go on furniture, so there aren’t many issues with us.

    We lie on our humans’ clothing and discarded items all the time. Mom never moves us. When we finally get up, she just takes the hair-covered clothes and puts them in the laundry. Athena, you have the most beautiful face. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
