NaPoWriMo Prompt – And now for our daily prompt (optional, as always). Today, I challenge you to write a paean to the stalwart hero of your household: your pet. Sing high your praises and tell the tale of Kitty McFluffleface’s ascension of Mt. Couch. Let us hear how your intrepid doggo bravely answers the call to adventure whenever the leash jingles.

Good afternoon and welcome to day twenty-nine of napowrimo. I know I am rather late today, but things conspired to keep me from writing the most aggravating one is my dishwasher conked out on me. I was doing all the dishes by hand this morning, and I still have more to do. The other impediment was the lack of inspiration. This is a house of a veterinary student who has always known he was going to be a veterinarian; which means the one thing this house has never lacked were pets. Currently we have one dog, three cats, a tortoise, a snake and some fish too numerous it was overwhelming. I went with an old haiku I wrote about the life of a cat. I just realized the green vine growing outside the window is cat’s claw.

Needless to say I’m a little frustrated right now to focus on poetry. Hopefully tomorrow I can knock it out of the park for the last day of April.
