L is for Licking Cat

L is for Licking Cat

a cat’s rough tongue
licking, cleansing a good scrub
saying I love you

cat haiku, original photo and digital manipulation by cactus catz, M. LaFreniere.

Laughing, I’m never sure if Midnight is waving my fingers out of the goodness of his heart or if he has ulterior motives like checking out what I had for dinner, where I’ve been and most importantly, who have I been petting and is bent on removing every last vestige of another cat’s scent.  He’s a good cat but a tad jealous and a bit of a chowhound.

Thinks about the chowhound … hmmmm …. maybe cats are like their owners.

People say dog owners often look like their dogs.  Do you think that happens with cat owners too?



#AtoZChallenge 2019 Tenth Anniversary badgeThis is 12th in the A to Z Challenge plus the following blog hops/link ups.  If you love cats, check the blog hops out.  They are a lot of fun.

Comedy Plus’s Feline Friday 

Caturday Art : a cat art blog hop hosted by Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty

I often write haiku and senryu on cactushaiku.com. It’s fun so I couldn’t resist a cat haiku this Feline Friday. Of course, Midnight makes an adorable subject.

If you’re doing the A to Z challenge, let me know and I’ll try to visit you.

You can use the Amazon search bar to do any search at Amazon like I did with “licking cat”. The cat snack on the wall is a new one for me. I don’t know that I want to encourage Pinkie and Midnight to lick the wall but it looks like a fun one.

    1. And it is an honor to be licked by Midnight. Thank you on the arty effect. I love how creative applications have become. It’s a lot of fun.

    1. Yes they are! And they like to clean me. I’m glad we don’t have to lick ourselves to stay clean — I’m not as limber as Pinkie or Midnight, lol.
