Haikus – our cats

Randomly, thanks to seeing something on twitter, I decided to try some haikus. Kind of like a writing prompt. After I looked up the proper format I tried out a few. Here’s what I came up with for our cats.

Leya
Buddy on the couch.
Pet the thick black and white fur.
The door bell rings. RUN!

Parker
Flooftastic brown fur.
Head butting and squeaking.
Lap cat only on her terms.

Codex
Gray tortie meows.
Ready to pounce her sister.
She wants your cracker.

Murphy
Old man stoic cat.
Calm and loving brown tabby.
Purrs like a motorboat.

I have histamine intolerance, lots of food allergies and sensitivities – including gluten. And I have multiple sclerosis fibromyalgia, asthma, drug allergies, and migraines. Basically, I have a collection of invisible chronic health problems. I don’t just survive these things, but sometimes I do hate them because I see doctors so often that keeping healthy and staying full time employed is currently impossible.
