Wherein Liza Bean Bitey Explores Her Creative Side

I found a slight smear of canned cat food on my keyboard the other day.

Funny. I don’t remember eating cat food…

There’s a new icon on my desktop: Haikus.

Who can help but double-click?

Little can, dumped in
Ceramic platter is nice
Where is the garnish?

I glance over at Liza Bean, curled up on a folded blanket at the end of the couch. Her eyes are closed, but the set of her ears suggests she is not asleep.

I move to the next haiku, entitled “Rest Easy”.

One eye is open
Oh, yes, I am watching you
Your cash card in reach.

Hmmm. That explains the charge from Amazon. I can’t wait to see what arrives.

You know I couldn’t resist, don’t you? I left her a haiku on my way out.

Autumn approaches
The kitty sleeps on my head
I dream of fur hats.

Dang cat.

The Wonder Dog also keeps tabs on me with one eye...

Wonder Dog sleeping
Snores through the day at my feet
Dreaming of kitties.

I think he wishes he had some kitty friends. Maybe he could be pen pals with Liza Bean.

Probably best to arrange a play date between Wonder Dog and Liza Bean; make them both happy.

Lovin' the haikus.

At least she's outgrown that slutty stage she was going through when she was into dance : )

Liza Bean must get her literary bent from her owner/roommate. My four cats have never shown any creativity beyond making interesting patterns in the kitty litter they kick out of the litter boxes.

I had a dog who used to log in to chat rooms at night, insult people in Swahili, and post my email for everybody to see.

Notice the "had a dog" part.

The cat as a muse?
I can't really seem to get
Miaow puns to work

(This time without typos)

What wonderful haikus Liza Bean writes! She is one talented kitty.

My two, Asha and Katia, are too busy sleeping on clean laundry to be so creative, I fear.

I can so see that cat surreptitiously watching you.

They know EVERYTHING don't they?

LMHO I was seriously considering getting a kitten. Now, I'm not so sure I want to ride on that crazy gravy cat tin train.

Still ... super duper hilarious!

Blessings!
