OLD MAU, a Cat Poem for National Poetry Month

Love This Poem.

OLD MAU

 

The universe takes notice

when Old Mau

passes by.

Venerable at twenty-one,

even the strays

don’t come near him.

Scrappy Dan

goes the other way—

No scraps today.

 

Old Mau chases dogs

for sport,

sinking claws

into unsuspecting

poochie noses

too close to his fence,

too curious.

 

Old Mau

crosses the garden,

stalks the unkempt lawn:

the beetle,

the moth,

the mouse,

the mole.

 

Old Mau

blinks green eyes

at the sunshine;

King of the World.

 

Cat poem by Mollie Hunt, April 2018

#AtoZChallenge W

Amazing.

Feline Opines

Hi There,
It’s Tucker. Today’s letter is “W” and that stands for “WELL FED”.  Now you may think I’m talking about the Tribe of Five and yes, it’s true, although we are very well fed (just look at Oliver’s physique) but I’m not talking about us, I’m talking about the woodland moochers that show up with their babies every spring.

The Female Human loves all of God’s creation and she can never say no to Mamma and her little ones. What does she feed them you ask? Cat food! What hubris!

Scooby Spring Walkabout in the Garden (Video)

Purrfect.

Feline Café

This post shows about 30 seconds of Scooby Spring Walkabout in the Garden on his lead.  He was leash trained when I got him, and is my only cat who is. My newest theory is he was raised in a family with only dogs, and never saw a cat!  For instance, when he eats off his food dish or plate, he always eats standing up, and not sitting on the floor like the other three.  Anyway, here he is in still life and action!

Scooby Who is in here?

#AtoZ Challenge Q

So beautiful.

Feline Opines

Hi There,
Jasmine here. Today’s letter is “Q” and that stands for ‘QUEENLY” and don’t Lily and I look the part? We are the only two girls in The Tribe of Five and we take our diva roles quite seriously. Now all we have to do is to get those males to treat us with the deference and respect we deserve! And a reminder, even rescue kitties like us can be royal!

#AToZChallenge F

I really enjoyed this blog.

Feline Opines

Hi All,
Tucker here.. Today’s letter is “F” for “FURRY AND FEATHERED WOODLAND FURIENDS”. We live in a rural area and there are many creatures that come to our house. The Female Human feeds most of them (not the skunks or the bears though).All these critters are very polite and go home after they’ve been fed (they can’t burrow under the house as we are built into a hill with lots of concrete.). All that is except the pesky woodpecker we wrote about recently.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy these photos of the view we have at our house. The Humans refer to it as “kitty cable”. The Female Human told me to tell you that although there is only one bear photo included (look at the lazy thing, laying on the railing and eating the bird seed) we had not one, not two but 3 bears at our house!…
