I was looking particularly for the Elevator Butt one, but yay, we get a few extra.

NICE!!

Mischka

Happily. (And bouncily.)

msbonne

Keep me abreast of the situation please.

Mischka

Oh, noes!! Sloth, come back!

Thehippo and I can set up a separate haiku thread.

But let me introduce you to dactylic meter.

I sprang to the stirrup, and Joris, and he;
I galloped, Dirck galloped, we galloped all three;
'Good speed!' cried the watch, as the gate-bolts undrew;
Speed! echoed the wall to us galloping through;
Behind shut the postern, the lights sank to rest,
And into the midnight we galloped abreast.

(Boys in high school used to love that last word.)

A simpler example is

Christopher Robin goes, Hoppity, hoppity, Hoppity, hoppity, hop.
Whenever I tell him, politely to stop it, he says he can't possibly stop.

:::sounds of sloth nail as a sloth "runs" away from the scene:::

thehippo

good one, Mischka.

Mischka

Does he prefer free verse? Iambic hexameter? My own favorite, dactylic pentameter, might sooth him, if he prefers athletic, galloping, Western poetry.

He snarks at Haiku.
Lucifer deceives me, though;
He loves attention.

:::sigh:::

My cat HATES Haiku

Thank you, Mischka. I love reading and writing haiku.

Mischka

Yes, our little darlings...

I have two cats and this is too true! LOL! TFS!

I'm weird - I sleep with the pillow vertical instead of horizontal like normal people!!! I'm a stomach sleeper with my head on the lower corner of the pillow and when I 'roll over' I want my head in the lower corner of the other side of the pillow. It got to be too much of a hassle to slide the pillow all the way over like a typewriter return that I started going vertical.

After that loooong explanation, Miss Toni has most of the pillow to herself. I just have the corners.

1. I've had only one cat that shared my pillow. You find yourself losing more and more territory and a sore neck in the morning.
2. My little cat Rocket doesn't elevator-butt. Instead, he starts darting his tongue out rapidly, turning his head this way and that. Never seen it in any other cat. Bela, however, understands proper butt etiquette.
3. I'm lucky, both cats like having their tummies rubbed.
4. Tread lightly because of sleep-blurred eyes -- yes, indeed! Ha ha ha!

Mischka

@thehippo -- Bravo! [clapclapclapclapclapclapclapclapclapclapclapclapclapclap!!!]

1. If hubby gets up before I do, cat gets on pillow and wraps self around my head...commences to purr as loud as she can (hence - amplification through pillow and top of head) = no more sleep!
2. Even with her not up to par due to health, scratch above tail = elevator going UP!
3. Do not touch my tummy under ANY circumstances, unless I give the go-ahead. All the rest of the areas are fine = if you do not want a fur mitten raking your hand to shreds, don't touch the tummy!
4. Been there - done that too many times to count = tread lightly in the morning!

Love the silly odes
so descriptively cat like
and so very true
