A Bengal Cat or a Marbled Tabby? – Photo Story

I saw this cat that looked like a Bengal cat, but I wasn’t sure.  It could be a marbled tabby cat… I couldn’t tell the difference.

So I did what every crazy cat lady would do, asked the cat.

Excuse me, Mr. Cat. Are you a Bengal or a marbled tabby?

Mr. Cat said “Don’t bother me. Go away.”

Then the cat got up and crossed the street.

I followed but he stopped and said “Stop following me!”

Of course I lied and said I wasn’t.. I was going the same way.

The cat went through a fenced in garden, but I could still see him.

Then the cat stopped. So I asked again.
“Are you a Bengal cat or just a marbled tabby.”

He just turned his head and didn’t answer. I think he felt insulted.

“Please,” I said, “I just need to know.”

The cat got up and said, “It’s time for my dinner. I’m going home.”

Then he stopped and said, “Please stop stalking me or I’ll tell my human you are trying to kidnap me.”

OMG!

What a mean cat I thought…

I am still not sure if the mean cat was a Bengal or a marbled tabby.

… but I know where he lives.

 

Guardian Angel – Haiku Poem

Guardian Angel

She is always there
Protecting me from evil
My guardian angel.

Isn’t it supposed to be spring? – A Poem

Snowy Day in April, photo by mzrosie

Looking out the window
and what do I see?
A beautiful snowy winter day
But isn’t it supposed to be spring?
When flowers bloom
and robins sing?
When we put on rubber boots
and play in the pouring rain?
Mother Nature, what’s happening?
Don’t wanna be disrespecful
’cause ’tis a beautiful day after all
But calendar shows it is April
It is supposed to be spring.
Well, isn’t it?

I took that picture this morning from my balcony.  Snow coming down in April.  It didn’t last long, for today anyway.  More snow in the forecast here in Toronto.  Lucky us!

Crocus are blooming
Other spring bulbs poking up
Despite April snow.

Meet Razor – A Haiku Poem

Windless August night
Two shadows in the park
Meet Razor, the pig.

I don’t remember the name of Razor’s owner although I had bumped into them more than once while I was walking my dog, Snuffles.  Snuffles was cool with Razor.  He probably thought Razor was just another dog, who kinda smelled funny.

Midas Touch – A Haiku Poem

Blazing rays of sun

Burned my skin and torched my soul

Beware of Midas touch.

I turned this concrete gray wall with yellow pipes into gold.  I’m rich!

Two Old Grouch – A Poem

Two Old Grouch

Two old grouch sitting on the porch
Soaking the sun, not a care in the world.

One had long curly hair
with a bushy mustache
The other almost bald
‘cept for one hair sticking out.

They both had flat noses
and their skin was brown
Wrinkled and scarred
for they had both been around.

Although brown on the outside,
inside they were black
For them this was normal,
they’re whole family’s like that.

They had worked really hard
All day long they were out
Rain or shine they tread on
Until they both fell apart.

Now they’re just two old grouch
Sitting on the porch.
Soaking the sun,
not a care in the world.
