Tuesday Haikusday: Fur and a Film

Today, I want to talk about something we have and people don’t. That’s right: fur.  Eh hem…

Look at it. Look at my fur. It's festive for the holidays.

Look at it. Look at my fur. It’s festive for the holidays.

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

Me: entrepreneur.

.

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.

Love,

Crepes.

PS. You have until tonight to leave a comment and be entered for the ASPCA gift basket giveaway. Get on it!

Tuesday Haikusday: Gourds

Today, I poeticize my frustration about gourds.

I curse you, gourds. Bleh.

Lumpy, bumpy, gross.

Why do you buy these stupids?

I swat them to death.

.

Colorful and bright

They taunt me with their wax shell

and offend my tongue.

.

“Gourds for sale,” it said.

Each one was .69 cents.

Waste of treat money.

I don’t know. Am I wrong? How do YOU feel about gourds?

Love,

Tuesday Haikusday: Foster Kittens

You guys.

I don’t even know what else to say, so I’ll let my feelings come out in haiku. Eh hem…

She did it again.

Words cannot express to you

How kittens bug me.

.

They’re all grey this time.

Except the one that I call

Mustache. She’s part white.

.

Spinning, playing, smells.

These things all come from kittens.

Toy mice everywhere.

.

There you have it. You might as well also see them. Go ahead. Look:

This is Scotty Sorbet, aka Mustache. Note the mustache and plump body type.

This is Louie He arrived extremely malnourished and is now on his way to plumping up like mustache.

This is Martha. He's months older than the other two and has a great head of hair.

Have you ever fostered? It’s quite an amazing experience (or so MomFOD constantly tells people). In fact, MomFOD had a little meeting last night with some rescue workers and they were saying how that would be the BEST THING you could do during kitten season. All you need is a spare room – a bathroom, bedroom, basement space – anything will do, as long as it’s safe and warm. A few weeks of your care and time would mean the world to a few little faces like you see above.

Here are some articles I wrote earlier this year:

Fostering. Is it for you?

Kitten Season: A Serious Need for Fosters

Please do consider fostering if you haven’t – it’s a life-changing experience.

Love,

Crepes.
