A few months ago we introduced you to some creative cats with some mad haiku-writing talent. Word on the street is there's even a feline haiku poetry slam in the works. We believe that these cats are loafed-up, zoned-out, staring into space, but what's going on behind those blank eyes is nothing short of genius. Now more cats have come forward with poetic musings, and we premiere them for you right here. 

Please enjoy 10 more haiku poems written by cats:

"Haiku flows like water from my fountain." Photo by KWKD

Do not insult me
By assuming I cannot
Squeeze inside that box
"It's a perfect fit." Photo by KerryBuckley
Be not alarmed for
It is I swatting stuff from
Atop your dresser
"I love being up here." Photo by AquarianLibrarian
Whilst in a slumber
I tumbled off the chair's arm
"You saw nothing." Photo by boshintangyo
Surely you won't miss
The turkey sandwich I've dragged
Into the hallway
"For me." Photo by knitandrun
Treasures abound in
Your full office wastebasket
Used tissues and tape
"Digging through the wastebasket makes me tired." Photo by momboleum
Comical humans
Setting alarms when they know
We will wake them up
"I'm WAY more reliable." Photo by klitaka
Staring at the door
A futile task so I must
Pound incessantly
"Staring does not work." Photo by akraticbehavior
Vanished, a cruel trick
Batted under the sofa
My catnip cigar
"Gone." Photo by lo_raconet_del_xopi
I was engaged by 
The bowl on the counter but
Then smelled the onions
"What. The hell. Was THAT?" dippy_duck
Carefree purrs shroud my
Disappointment that you bought
The wrong treats again
"I must pretend. Again." Photo by 15480969@N06
