Tuesday Haikusday: What Cannot Be Unseen

You guys!

Today, I’d like to play a game via haiku. We’ll call it “What Cannot Be Unseen.”  I will show you a photo of me doing something and you tell me what I was doing OR what I was seeing based on the look on my face. Ready? Eh hem…

The look.
The look.

They are approaching

Unseen, sneaking up behind.

Claws at the ready.


Do I turn around?

Or pretend they are not here?

Frozen, unmoving.


Scritchy scratch, scritch scratch.

Daring not to run away

I stay and enjoy.


That’s it! What’s happening? Give me your best guess!



PS. Have you seen the latest CATastrophes film? No? Well, today’s your lucky day because here it is, starring ME!


  • Is your mom showing you the nail clipper ? Or a giant pill ? Purrs

  • Well, darn! Mom thought she was going to get some usable tips to keep Lisbeth from throwing things on the floor just to watch them crash. Love that wide-eyed photo, Crepes. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  • mmm..Ihave another guess–you were using your litter pan and your MOD (or is it FOD?) came to clip your nails or put you in your carrier?


  • Could it be some kitty had helped themselves to a nommy deliciousness off the counter or somewhere they weren’t supposed to?! I’m sure if this is the case it COULDN’T be you– Mrs. Peabody perhaps?

  • We think the answer is: Kittens! Kittens! Kittens!

    Our Mom thinks there may be another reason for your expression…so here goes:

    There I sit alone
    a deserted kitchen waits
    Where are the humans?

    It is almost six
    Surely someone will be up
    There is not a soul

    How can this happen?
    My worst nightmare beckons now
    an empty food bowl

    We thought Mom’s brain was going to explode when she tried to write this. Correction. In her case, it would implode…nothing there right now but lots of space.

  • Crepes…were you using your litter pan when you were approached by someone? somethings?

  • You look like you are about to be pilled, Crepes! At least that’s the look Sparkle used to get. I love the new video, BTW – I bet you had fun making it!

  • LOL Kitties will be kitties without training. I hope the sound of glass breaking was a sound effect 😉 Museum putty is good for keeping objects stay put but I keep breakables out of reach.
