Are you sure Cat wasn't just turning a blind eye? lol :)
dave that's very funny and insightful. jinksy - cats are so polished in their obliviousness i'd be inclined to think that way!!!! steven
You caught the essence of cat and distilled it down to three lines. Bravo
Hi Dave,Haven't seen this bit of news - unless it was a personal encounter - so don't know if the cat really was deaf but nothing could express disdain better!
cats take messages and get back to you later...
Smart cat, knows how to play it cool.
Yep, that's a cat for you.
You must see the photo on my post today ...a laughing cat ~ most likely laughing at a fox!
That sums up a cat nicely, Dave - there's none so deaf as those who choose not to hear.
Dear Dave, funny and intense haiku. And it perfectly points out a typical behaviour of some cats.I remember one by Jack Kerouac which I can't find because I lost the book where I read it many, many years ago.It was more or less like this:Kicked the fridge door,missed it,it closed all the same.And this is mine ( with Yeats in mind ):Gulls by the waves, goodat waiting for anything:"Fish, flesh, or fowl."
a Couple of days ago there was a cat expert on the tube- he stated that cats are cool because they are still sort of wild...they have not lost that quality- to remain cool is to rule...they rarely if ever show pain because that would make them vulnerable. Never ruffled. Your poem is perfect!
Dogs always make such a fuss for nothing.Great little poem.
I like the repeated sounds "f" from/fox/fluffyand "s" strolls/sedately/stoneon-oblivioussedate-stone deaflook...I'm learning!Thanks for your work
great haiku! ah, cats.... love 'em, hate 'em, ya gotta admire them!
