Haiku Poem – 子猫

little ball of fur
all day boundless energy
our Kareen

(Jim Woodhull)
かむ ばかり あちこち はしる かりん ちゃん

In my apartment, my wife and I are not allowed to have pets. We have always had one or two cats and also had dogs for about 9 years, so not being able to have pets has been very hard. The apartment above us has one dog and two cats and for a long time we have been talking about at least getting a cat. Near our apartment there is a pet store that works with the Humane Society and they recently had lots of kittens so they were giving them away for free! All we had to do was pay for the initial shots which cost about $70.00. We have a great kitten that we call Kareen, after the Japanese fruit, who follows me around like a little puppy and all she wants to do is play! So we have a new addition to our family! If our landlord finds out I will just say we have problems with mice!
