Cats are naturally meditative creatures; they often look like they’re immersed in super deep thoughts. I like to imagine them pondering heavy philosophical questions and feeling completely Zen. You know what else I think they’re doing? Writing haiku poetry. That’s right. I think I’ve even caught my Phoebe counting syllables on her toes. No lie.
What kind of haikus would they write? I have a few ideas — here are 9 of them!
What would your cat’s haiku look like? Give us a sample or two in the comments! Remember to use only 17 syllables — five for the first line, seven for the second, and five for the third.
