Snooze Button


There is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast. ~~ by Anonymous
I read this quote and I thought of my pal Noodles. While he was here, this was certainly true. HH tried all sorts of things, but she never found his "snooze" button.

HEE HEE... that cat makes me laugh.

Every morning (2 weeks), he woke HH up at around 4 o'clock. He'd usually put his face in front of hers and go "MEOOOOOOOOOW" .... in much the same manner as the commentators at the soccer games call, "GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL."

Sometimes she responded by patting him on the head and turning away. Sometimes (my personal favorite) she jumped right out of the bed. And, at other times, she tried to ignore him, but I could tell and I'm sure Noodles could tell that she was faking.

Faking doesn't work with us. Once we know you're awake, it's all over for you...

So, how do you go about waking up your food human when you think it's time for breakfast?

We find that bladder-stomping is quite effective.

I have the woman trained to get up between 4 and 5. If she doesn't awaken on her own, I bite her wrist or arm or anything that's not under the covers. She tells me that when she goes back to work, I better not get her up until 6. HAH!

I love coming here because I laugh a lot!
Well, we are four cats. Ébano is in charge of calling mom incessantly until she resigned, going to fill our plates of feed ... Nelson is a glutton. Eats anything in its power and when humans are making their meals, he is teasing, scratching their legs to win a piece or be put on the other side of the kitchen door.

My human refuses to wake up--really.

We don't wake the humans up for food, but we do wake for cuddles!! You can NOT avoid the cuddles...

You are a silly boy, Max; when Sukki does that early morning wake up call for Mommy, she always gets cuddles for awhile first...xoxo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

I get my stinky goodness at dinner, not breakfast so I don't wake mom for food. I do wake her for cuddles. I climb back and forth over her and lick her hands until she stops ignoring me.

We've found that pouncing on my Dad and running across the bed usually works for us!

We usually try not to wake mom up coz, well, she is rilly good at ignoring us. The only thing wot gets mom to fly out of bed like a rawket is fur one of us to start upchucking. Werks like a charm. We duss save that for speshul occashuns tho or udderwise she be onto us and it won't werk any mores.
