Haiku 5, by Pumpkin

Once again, Pumpkin shares his feline wisdom and creativity.



Trapped in a small pen.

Like a dog, confined, exposed.

Detest this deeply.

(The above haiku reflects his  service experience at Entegra last month. We couldn’t leave him in the bus, so brought him into the customer lounge. He was Not Happy.)


King Pumpkin

She says it’s her spot.

Silly human, you should know,

Every place is mine.

Haiku 4, by Pumpkin

It’s been quite some time since I shared my creative musings. Why? Because, I didn’t feel like it. You can peruse my prior offerings here, here, and here. You’re welcome.


You silly squirrel
Dance, squawk, flip your tail.
I am not impressed.



Lie in the window
In warm sun, safe and secure.
Watch the world pass by.


I grow weary. Time for napping.



Haiku, by Pumpkin

It has been a while since I graced you with my creative prowess. My human translates.

Moving Day

Moving day today

Hustle, bustle, pack up, go!

I ride on mom’s lap.


Arrive at new place.

Different sights, sounds, smells and tastes,

Waft through my window.


Pumpkin’s Perspective: Life on the Road

012My name is Pumpkin and my human is transcribing my words of wisdom for this  communication forum. It is my pleasure to share my feline perspective with you.

Yes, I am a cat, a striking orange tabby, hence the name. My human and I found each other 5 years ago, when I was four. It has proved to be a most felicitous partnership. Although I enjoyed our years together in the big house with the fabulous screened patio, I am equally excited to share this life on the road. How many cats can boast of an ever-changing view outside their window?

004My humans have provided well for my comfort. They removed an unneeded chair and replaced it with a most satisfactory cat tree. The perches are just the right height for window viewing and the cedar scratching post is quite serviceable. I appreciate having my own space in this new world.

Living in a moving home was unsettling at first. I must confess that I sought the comfort of the under-bed space many times. Intellectually, I understand what is happening, but my cat body gets anxious. I am gradually adjusting to the sounds and movements, but my preferred travel-day spot is on my human’s lap. It is very comforting and I like the neck scratches.

I am looking forward to this life of adventure. Hmmm, I like the sound of that – Pumpkin, the adventure cat! I will share my unique perspective with you from time to time. Or, maybe not.
