Carpe Diem, #4 animal

Dear Haijin (haiku poets),

It's a pleasure to see that Carpe Diem, seize the day, has found his place in the hearts of my fellow haiku poets. Still I hope that more of them will find the way to Carpe Diem. Maybe you, my dear haijin, can make other poets enthusiastic for this new daily haiku meme.
Today it's October 4th it's World Animal Day, so the prompt/theme for today is animal ... write a haiku about animal(s) or about your pets ... share it with us here on Carpe Diem and enjoy writing them. Your haiku can be a classical or a non-classical haiku (or senryu).
This prompt will stay on 'till Friday October 5th 11.59 AM (CET). The next prompt will be ... moon ... and will be published on October 4th around 10.00  PM (CET).
