Just decided to dust this off and drag it out again.

Cat Haiku

You never feed me.
Perhaps I'll sleep on your face.
That will show you.

You must scratch me there!
Yes, above my tail! Behold,
elevator butt.

I need a new toy.
Tail of black dog keeps good time.
Pounce! good dog! good dog!

The rule for today.
Touch my tail, I shred your hand.
New rule tomorrow.

In deep sleep hear sound
Cat vomit hairball somewhere.
Will find in morning.

Grace personified
I leap into the window
I meant to do that

Blur of motion, then-
Silence, me, a paper bag
What is so funny?

The mighty hunter
Returns with gifts of plump birds
Your foot just squashed one.

You're always typing
Well, let's see you ignore my
Sitting on your hands.

My small cardboard box
You cannot see me if I
Can just hide my head.

Terrible battle
I fought for hours. Come and see!
What's a "term paper"?

Kitty likes plastic
Confuses for litter box
Don't leave tarp around

Small brave carnivores
Kill pine cones and mosquitoes
Fear vacuum cleaner

Want to trim my claws
Don't even think about it!
My yelps will wake the dead

I want to be close
To you. Can I fit my head
inside your armpit?

Wanna go outside.
Oh, no! Help! I got outside!
Let me back inside!

Oh no! Big One
has been trapped by newspaper.
Cat to the rescue!

Humans are so strange.
Mine lies still in the bed, then screams!
My claws aren't that sharp....

Cats meow out of angst
"Thumbs! If only we had thumbs!
We could break so much"

Litter box not there
You must have moved it again
I'll crap in the sink

The Big Ones snore now
Every room is dark and cold
time for "Cup Hockey"

We're almost equals
I purr to show I love you
Want to smell my butt

(edited for the following addition from goodfielder.)
An observation tonight at home, after a storm:

Thunder and light cracks
You seem to worry, not me
My paws wet, safe now

(and from dlowan. . .)

Stretched out, coughing hard -
She thinks I will die, but I know
Furball only here.

Why, Rog, those are delightful, but you declared that you were not given to versifying.

I love this one:

The rule for today.
Touch my tail, I shred your hand.
New rule tomorrow.

Oh, panz. You didn't know I had a cat. By magic, almost, there are three of them.

I'll Add that one to my list, goodfielder. Thanks, cuz I didn't write a darn one of them.

Thanks everyone for noticing my little thread here. Special thanks to Letty - she's chewing on me at the very moment for being a bad hose.

Kitten runs, jumps, plays
Learning important Cat Things
From all his elders

Kittens are magic
put something high, closed, away,
They always find it

Twenty small sharp claws
digging in my leg as I
use can opener

Shreiking screaming cat
Blessed pop-top cat food cans
Hurry, feed me now!

Don’t sleep on the floor
You will be covered with cats
Buried under fur
