A Catnip Haiku

I love the catnip! So, today I wrote a haiku about catnip. I hope you enjoy it. Feel free to write your own haiku in the comments!
Green Flakes
Catnip in my furs
Fills my head with crazy dreams
Green flakes of magic

ps: The Animal Rescue Site is having a "Cutest Cat" contest. The winner gets a $250 gift certificate to their store. If we win, we could buy TWELVE "Help Spay or Neuter a Cat" certificates. You can vote once per day, through Sunday.

<--- If you click on Harley's photo, it will take you to his voting page. Please vote, or enter your own photo!

Daisy, catnip sure is like magic! I love catnip, too. I like eating them and then rolling around for more.

crazy for catnip
faithful "feel good" pheromone
-cat's worst-kept secret

Milo and Alfie said...

We're gonna vote for Harley 'cos he is SO cute! Also what a marvelous way to use the gift certificate if yoo win!

Milo and Alfie said...

We're so sorry ~ we tried to vote but we don't use Facebook so it wouldn't let us 'cos we didn't have a password.

PS: We love the Haiku. Ours is:

Sunshine beams
Warm on our furs
Makes us feel cosy
Invisible rays of happiness

Eric and Flynn said...

We just went and voted for Harley. We didn't have a Facebook account so mum opened one specially for us. We are called 'you' at the moment but mum said she will try and get our names on it and put our photo up when she has more time.

Zoe and Indy said...

You are such a good poet Daisy!

Ok, here is our haiku we made up to share with you. It really captures the mood around here at the moment. It is called:

"Why the heck do you expect us to wait until 8:00 for breakfast!?"

It's not too early
We don't know how to tell time
Tummies are rumbly!

Skeezix the Cat said...

TUMMY SHOT TUMMY SHOT TUMMY SHOT!!!! OMC, I'm hyperveniltating!

Gus's Haiku:
All week I wait for
Catnip Saturday Night - YAY!
It makes me feisty

Pru's Haiku:
I don't get the 'nip
It tastes just like dusty leaves
Then Gus bites me hard

My kitty is sweet
But she gets paranoid enough
Without the catnip.

Actually, Minnie barely reacts to catnip--poor thing! She misses out on so much catly fun!

Love sent from heaven.

Oh, dear, now you can expect a visit from the DEA ...

Nicole Weeverink said...

When Prince returned home his girlfriend was pissed at the paltry amount of cash he brought with him (exactly how much cash he thought he would get from a damned pizza place I don't know...) so he told her he had been robbed. The girlfriend told him he needed to call the police and report the robbery. Not knowing how to get out of his web of lies he did just that.

I just spent an hour of my precious time getting caught up with blogs of celebrities. I knew this was bad subscribing to their blogs using my Reader. I could have finished all online tasks by that time. Anyhow, I chanced upon a celebrity blog who was very vocal with her owned jewelry.

Theresa111 said...

If I gave my kitties half this much catnip, I would have a small war zone on my hands. Isn't this like an overdoze? Snoozing can be heard from Daisy's small frame. Love, Theresa111
