Just so you know—I wake up BEFORE Mom and Dad! I mean BEFORE! Like when the sky is still dark, but there is a tiny rim of light over there in the East and two BIG stars, one high and one low shining brightly.
Mom always gets up at 5:00 a.m., but I get up Before MOM!
Until Mom and Dad get up, I do things to help them get up: I run across the bed really, really fast. Then jump off. I walk as heavy as I can up Dad, cross over the top of his head and the pillow, onto Mom’s head and pillow, and walk down her as hard as I can.
Then when Mom turns over on her back I walk up (HEAVY) and stop right on her stomach and stand hard and stare at her. When she opens her eyes and starts to touch me I lay down fast and put my face right into her face and PURR!
Then Mom and I have a long, long, long pet/purr time before I get tired and jump up, push-off, and jump down.
If Mom doesn’t get up right then I do everything I can to get her up—I sit in the window and try to climb the screen to get at the Swallows building nests onto the house, (That ALWAYS gets me yelled at).
When I get tired of all those things, and I want Mom to get up and get me some yummy food from a can, I CLAW the drapes.
Mom flings herself out of bed and yells at me to STOP; I run off fast into the kitchen where I wait.
Yep! Five O’clock! Time for mom to rise and shine!
The Day has Started!
Nothing like the teenage behavior of a cat. He will finally pass to the stage where he wants to sleep- in, but it takes awhile. My cat and I have progressed to afternoon naps and that helps.
He stays outside all day and then comes in a crashes the whole night until….MORNING!
Oh boy, Cai-Cai, clawing the curtains and climbing screens is a giant no-no! Get’s me in trouble every time, so I quit… unless it’s important likea moth made me do it 😸
Oh! Yes!!! Or Birds or weeds or wind or —- TLC Cai-Cai
It’s obvious that Mom and Dad don’t need an alarm clock with you around, TLC Chi-Cai!
No they have an ALARM ME!!! TLC Cai-Cai
Sounds like you are quite the communicator, CC. And your mama knows just what you need and exactly what you want.
Love and licks,
Or she pretends to know. 🙂
Sounds like you’ve got your mom pretty well trained!
Yes I do…a purr, a leg rub, she melts. TLC Cai-Cai
Chaplin: “It’s not easy keeping the humans motivated and getting them out of bed. Trust me, I know!”
Ah…you understand! POUNCING ONWARD!!! TLC Cai-Cai
TLC has grown into one pretty cat!
Him is! Just Handsome!
Oh you are naughty … clawing the drapes! I bet you get growled at .. 🙂
How lovely that you give your Mum smooches in the morning.
The drapes, the furniture, the bed, the screens…I get yelled NO and then Mom tries to pick me up but I run away FAST!
