Tuesday Haikusday: Kittens

I shall just begin.

Running in the house

I trip them as they go by.

Sweet vengeance is mine.


The kitten I most recently tripped.
The kitten I most recently tripped.

They love the soft mice

And don’t yet know the joys of

Ignoring nice toys.


Modem quit working

Sharp teeth on electric cords

Bitter apple sprays.




PS. I just read about Sam Simon, the creator of The Simpsons. Apparently, he was diagnosed with colon cancer a few years ago. He decided that, in his last months, he is giving away his fortune, much of it to animals in need. He has organized the Sam Simon Foundation, where he rescues dogs from shelters and trains them to assist disabled veterans and people with hearing impairment.

I want to salute you, Mr. Simon. You have done something lovely during your own hardship, and that takes courage. Every episode of the Simpons I have watched over the years has, in the long run, helped animals in need. Thank you, Sam Simon, for your gift to animals.

You can read more about it here.


  • How wonderful of Mr. Simon to do this. More people should look beyond themselves to see what they can do–every little bit helps–and the more you do, the more you find that you can do! And if you can’t do more–do whatever you can–it’s all good.

    Our Mom is going to make another “KIttens” attempt because a friend of hers was recently besieged by furry ones:

    Sweet kitten faces
    Cuddly and inquisitive
    So full of themselves.

    Climbing here and there
    Crash, thud, rip, screech, squeal, MEOW!
    They show no respect

    Nasty little beasts
    Jumping on the older cats
    Kitty-time Smack-down!

    Serafina, Arya, Bean, Iggy, Teddy, and Useless

    Pee Ess: Mom loves the expression of the kitty in the photo–if looks could kill…
