Cat Haiku, and Pictures, Too

I thought, erroneously, that there might have been enough cat pictures out there to satisfy cat picture needs for generations to come.  And then I posted a picture of my cats in this blog (see Two Live Cats and a Talavera One).  From the views and clicks, apparently new cat pictures are still very much the thing.

So here you have a haiku inspired by Godfrey, a 6 year-old tuxedo cat (and family member) who nibbles on his tail, is afraid of his shadow, and is also the sweetest lap cat EVER.  And of course, some pictures, too.

Haiku for Godfrey

Godfrey, in repose:

because the world doesn’t have

enough cat pictures.

Godfrey in his noble, “I’m a future leader” pose

Godfrey is named after the lead character in My Man Godfrey, a wonderful screwball comedy movie from the 1930s.  Read about it here.  We watched the movie, about a millionaire posing as a “forgotten man” and accepting a job as a butler, the night before we welcomed Godfrey into our family.  And of course we had to name our new tuxedoed family member after the William Powell character.  You can see the resemblance, can’t you?
