I thought I’d bring back some haiku today in honor of the book party we’re having tomorrow in support of Tree House! Eh hem…
Supports my head while I nap.
Gently, I sniff you.
Held up to her face
Taking attention from me
I punch your pages.
Your pages crinkle
Gently, I chew your corners.
I digest knowledge.
If you don’t have a copy of Rescued yet, get one here.
PS. Here’s a video of me playing in slow motion. Ignore the grey cats. I’m the star.
Have you ever had the feeling that you just have too many cats to fit on a Christmas card? And then you try to shove the dog in there, too?
Well, MomFOD came up with a solution a few years ago. She jammed all of our names together until they made an interesting to say word. Now, when it was just Rocky, Niles, Dixie, and Peabody, they were known as “PIxieRoNi.” When they adopted me, they amended it to “CrePIxieRoNi.” Now that Rocky’s gone, we had to drop the Ro, and adding the ever-present fosters Louie and Sprinkle to the mix made a challenge that MomFOD had never seen before.
After much consternation where she was staring at a notebook and shushing me off her lap, she came up with the epic name of all names that would allow her to fit all of us onto their Christmas card. And that name is….
It’s a little weird, I’m not going to lie. However, it sums us up nicely and fits on a card.
Give it a try! Write down all your pets names, underline the syllables that you want to use, and then mix and match to see what else you can get! Some of our discarded ideas were:
What’s your combined name?
PS. Since it’s Tuesday, I’ll toss in a haiku. Eh hem…
Christmas Eve comes close
Under the tree you’ll find me
Our tiny, small tree.
Today, I want to talk about something we have and people don’t. That’s right: fur. Eh hem…
Soft, silky, short, sleek
Striped, gray, black, brown, mottled red
So many choices.
I am always warm
You pay for coats and mittens
It sucks to be you.
You want to touch it
I’m going to charge you for that
There it is! What do you think of fur? How many colors are in your house?
Speaking of charging for pets, check out this new CATastrophes film featuring Peabody and the seemingly ever-present Louie.
