The Japanese master of feline versifications, Hanatō Fukui (1650 – 1730), is revered the world over.
Here are three of his Haiku that became very popular in Russia in the late 1800′s:
Cat rolls, shows belly.
I rub once – he purrs sweetly.
I rub twice – torn flesh!—
Cat fills my pillow.
I scoot him. Get badly clawed.
I will use the floor.—
I sit with rich guests.
Stinky poo smell fills the room.
I accuse Fluffy.
