Hanatō's Cat Haikus, Pt. 2

Today, we feature more excerpts from "The Edo Cat Haikus" by the 17th century master, Hanatō Fukui:

You are a vampire!
Folks tell lies, say you're a cat.
Pelt you with garlic.


Last night I was drunk.
But you, cat, stayed home with me.
You're my only friend.


Kyoto cats yowl,
Terrifying shrieks from Hell.
I have wet the bed.
