Cheap Entertainment

The dog wags his tail,
Seeking approval. See mine?
Different message.
Patricia Turner, "Kitty Haiku"


Give Cat an empty shoebox and then sit back for hours of laughter as she manoeuvres herself under the tissue and into the box. For her second act, Cat jumps out of the box and crouches under the tissue, assured that she is camouflaged from her victim (aka a nearby foot). Her tail, however, extends out from under the paper and quivers quickly with the excitement of the hunt. Cat, and my foot, are purveyors of cheap home entertainment. What a pleasure!
