      This was on another group (GuruRatings?) In any event, I thought it
      well worth sharing"Remember haikus? A type of poem of Japanese
      origin,
      unrhymed and having three lines usually containing 5,
      7, and 5 syllables respectively. Typically intended
      to conjure a single intense image and a concentrated
      emotion. Don't know who wrote these, but they're very
      funny and certainly sum up the personalities of cats
      and dogs. Enjoy!

      Cat Haikus

      You never feed me.
      Perhaps I'll sleep on your face.
      That will sure show you.


      You must scratch me there!
      Yes, above my tail! Behold!
      Elevator butt.


      The rule for today:
      Touch my tail, I shred your hand.
      New rule tomorrow.

      In deep sleep hear sound
      Cat vomit hairball somewhere
      Will find in morning.

      Grace personified.
      I leap into the window.
      I meant to do that.


      Blur of motion, then--
      Silence, me, a paper bag
      What is so funny?


      You're always typing.
      Well, let's see you ignore my
      Sitting on your hands.


      My small cardboard box.
      You cannot see me if I
      can just hide my head.

      Terrible battle.
      I fought for hours. Come and see!
      What's a "term paper"?

      Small brave carnivores
      Kill pine cones and mosquitoes
      Fear vacuum cleaner


      I want to be close
      To you. Can I fit my head
      Inside your armpit?

      Wanna go outside.
      Oh, crap! Help! I got outside!
      Let me back inside!

      Oh no! The Big One
      Has been trapped by newspaper!
      Cat to the rescue!

      Humans are so strange.
      Mine lies still in bed, then screams.
      My claws are not that sharp.

      Cats meow out of angst
      "Thumbs! If only we had thumbs!
      We could break so much!"

      The Big Ones snore now.
      Every room is dark and cold.
      Time for "Cup Hockey!"

      We're almost equals.
      I purr to show I love you.
      Want to smell my butt?

      Dog Haikus

      I lie belly-up
      In the sunshine, happier than
      You will ever be.

      Today I sniffed
      Many dog behinds -- I celebrate
      By kissing your face.

      I sound the alarm!
      Paper boy -- come to kill us all
      Look! Look! Look! Look! Look!

      I sound the alarm!
      Garbage man -- come to kill us all
      Look! Look! Look! Look! Look!

      How do I love thee?
      The ways as numberless as
      My hairs on the rug.

      My human is home!
      I am so ecstatic I
      Have made a puddle.

      I hate my choke chain
      Look, world, they strangle me! Ack!
      Ack! Ack! Ack! Ack! Ack!

      Sleeping here, my chin
      On your foot -- no greater bliss -- well,
      Maybe catching rats

      The cat is not all
      Bad --she fills the litter box
      With tootsie rolls.

      Dig under fence--why?
      Because it's there. Because it's
      There. Because it's there.

      I am your best friend,
      Now, always, and especially
      When you are eating.

      Look in my eyes and
      Deny it. No human could
      Love you as much as I.
