I ask, how do you know where the line is if you don't try to cross it?
I admit waking Mom up at 3:30am on a Saturday night might be pushing it, but I've gone there plenty of times. I was hungry after all, my late night snack had been missed somehow. Sure I always have my kibble available but I likes me gravy.
I think the line came around 4:30am to about 5:30am when I meowed every five minutes as I perched on Mom's nightstand like a cat gargoyle. I really thought she should be up and out of the bed already. She had work to do and second breakfast sounded good to me.
I must say Mom is far more spry than I thought when she flails out of bed peeved. Luckily this grannycat has the ability to ignore any crabby human words. She did get a lot done this weekend, so I say it was all worth it in the end.
Your poor mommy!!!! She has SS's sympathyReplyDelete
You are lucky! You have your mom well trained! My mom is a lazy one... especially on the weekends! Some weekends she sleeps well past 9am.ReplyDelete
There's no second guessing as to who rules the roost at your place. Pussy power!ReplyDelete
We don't let anyone sleep a minute past 5am. It's our job...ReplyDelete
Nice work Fin!
Jack meows, and gets bitey, and then pees on the floor if Mom doesn't get up and dispense the food.ReplyDelete
My Mom is skaing her head incredulous that you could do that to your Mom. Me, I understand about the gravy. Maybe your Mom could come up with an automated gravy dispenser.ReplyDelete
Your poor Mommy!!...We sleep around our Mommy and get up with her, usually around 7-8 am...Finny, you are definitely the boss at your house!!MOL...xo...Calle, Halle, SukkiReplyDelete
You're just keeping her on her toes!ReplyDelete
When I tried that, I was told if I didn't go away and go to sleep immediately I'd get a kick in the fluffy white backside. Can I move in with you?ReplyDelete
Training of the human is not very hard when a wise old cat puts a her mind to it.ReplyDelete
What you said about having to explore boundaries is a very interesting thought. But maybe your mommy would get even more done if she had a good night sleep?ReplyDelete
Way to go, Fin!ReplyDelete
I've been using the "bitey-n-claw toe technique" as of late. Glogirly's comforter is at the cleaners (something about cat hair) and so all she's sleeping with other than Gloman is a sheet. This affords me easy access to her toes. I must say it's quite effective.ReplyDelete
Trust us, your mom has our human's sympathies. She certainly can relate!ReplyDelete
Of course, you know best, Fin. Your Mom should have learned that your way is what she really wants!ReplyDelete
What was mom doing this weekend Fin? Curious minds want to know. And since I'm sure you were participating, it's time to dish!ReplyDelete
Humans have such odd slepping patterns. They'd get a lot more done if they were more like us cats!ReplyDelete
Well I think you're right Fin, we wake our humans early too, I don't know why they want to sleep so late when there is food to be served.ReplyDelete
Huh. Kittehs pay attention lines? Weird.ReplyDelete
Look at all those little extra jobs that can be done when they get up a few hours earlier!ReplyDelete
Way to have your human trained, Fin! That'll remind her who is boss and will soon be an even bigger celebrity.ReplyDelete
!? Has Elizabeth been writing you on the sly for tips?ReplyDelete
She really should thank you for getting her up that early, Fin. Look at all the extra stuff she got done because of your hard work!ReplyDelete
You sure have your human trained well, Fin...our mom would never get out of bed at 5:30am no matter how much we yelled. But of course, she wouldn't get any sleep either....ReplyDelete
Is there something wrong with a 3:30am feeding?ReplyDelete
Give 'em an inch and they'll take a yard Fin. Never let up the pressure, not even for one minute.ReplyDelete
A cat gargoyle sounds like a good greeting card to me. Please stop me, I might be obsessed!ReplyDelete
Good job Fin. We do the same, just keep meowing when we need something and when we do need something we need it right now. She tries to go back to bed, but that is not going to happen.ReplyDelete
Hope you all have a wonderful week.
Oh Fin our mom is horrified at the idea of getting up at that time. We are lucky to get fed on weekdays around 6:45! You are lucky that you can get your mom up - ours just ignores us no matter what!ReplyDelete
MOL! Skeeter likes to wake mom up at ALL hours of the night. It starts with the relentless headbutting, then the super loud purring, then grooming mom's hair and eyebrows...and to top it off...LOAD meows!ReplyDelete
How about marching up and down over all the most sensitive body parts, yeowling?ReplyDelete
That works, too :D
Congrats on your book.
I find bladder-stomping and *just* one claw in ANY sensitive area works well. Of course, claws can be clipped...sigh.ReplyDelete
xx KonaKitty (another LV grannycat!)
Look how much you helped your human get accomplished this weekend! I have no idea why they can be so ungrateful sometimes.ReplyDelete
Doesn't your mum know that 3.30 is when night starvation starts? Our mum has stopped our crunchies so at 3.30 every morning, she pays for it. I, Eric do the head stomps and Flynn yowls.ReplyDelete
Your dedication is exemplary, Fin.ReplyDelete
My kitties usually come at 6 in the morning for food. they are very punctual :)ReplyDelete
