The Cyrenius H. Booth Library’s Facebook page shared a number of photos on Monday, April 6, of poetry shared on a magnetic poetry board set up there. My favorite? A cat poem, of course. “I have my face in a pillow & my kitty is mean fat and crazy, she always scratches.”

Instagram user @chanecullens has been keeping The Newtown Bee’s Instagram photos at newtownbee.com full of photos of birds in the last few weeks. She has uploaded three beautiful pictures of birds since the end of January, but this week is my favorite: a cat. According to the post, the cat was out prowling for mice in the snow. You can see for yourself that this brave feline was certainly claw deep.
