Happy Caturday! What kind of gifts have your cats given you lately? Sometimes we need to give ourselves a gift. The Haiku is by Susan Willett of Life With Dogs and Cats She’s one of many talented CWA members off to Nashville at the end of the month to attend the Blogpaws Conference. There will be two CWA writer panels and plenty of opportunity to network and catch up with old and new friends. Imagine 500 pet lovers, top pet experts, a cat product lounge, awards, swag and pets! Attending conferences like Blogpaws and CWA is the gift that keeps on giving.
This year Blogpaws has gone totally digital. With one click you can see the entire program and then select to view the schedule, who is attending, buy tickets and more.
I’ll be presenting one of the panels and hope to meet more CWA members in person. If you have ideas for the CWA blog, let’s talk. This blog is our members’ place to shine. In the meantime, if you’d like to guest blog, have a question or submission, email me, Layla@laylamorganwilde.com
If you’re feeling T.G.I.F., we have some feline Haiku to make you smile.
A Few Catku by Lee Wardlaw
I come bearing gifts!
Do dogs leave treats with grassy
garnish? I thought not.
Stranger coos: “Itty pwetty kitty!”
A fur ball serves as my reply.
Audience bellows bravo!
Cue for an encore.
Plump mouse crouched between
two damp leaves. Sun-warmed sandwich,
Lee Wardlaw has a ”hot off the press” children’s book written in Haiku. Won Ton and Chopstick: A Cat and Dog Tale Told in Haiku is a witty tale of a cat who learns the new family member is a dog. Beautifully illustrated by Eugene Yelchin, Won Ton will appeal to kids of all ages from 6 to 96.
I just received a review copy of WON TON and CHOPSTICK, A Cat and Dog Tale Told in Haiku the sequel to WON TON: A Cat Tale Told in Haiku Amy Shojai loved it as much as I did and recently posted her review

You don’t need to be Irish to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. According to U.S. News a reported 127 million Americans will celebrate this holiday and spend a lot of green. Last year revelers spent 4.8 million. As an old-fashioned antidote, I created a collage of vintage and modern elements. It’s free to share on social media. May you enjoy the day with a furry friend or two. After all, what could be luckier?
It’s been a brutal winter for many of our members and a little humor goes a long way. If you’re feeling winter weary, take comfort in this actual LOL cat created over a hundred years ago. I found the antique photo and only tweaked the color and added the caption. Have a warm weekend!
We have more kitty humor coming soon including Haikus. Be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss any!
