Sunday morning...

Meh, would've slept it in if weren't for Lestat, aka Supermodel Boodaboo, bothering me for food. Couldn't go back to sleep after that.

His preferred method is to lay above my head and knead or chew on my hair. Many times I'll wake up with my head completely pushed off the pillow and him curled up and contentedly purring above me. I'll usually push him off and go back to sleep.

If that doesn't work, he'll locate some paper (usually an important piece of mail) or plastic and chew on that, which makes a horrible rattling sound that is very hard to ignore. I'll stop that by dipping my fingers in the water glass and flinging it at him. That will send him running.

He'll loaf on my chest and stare at me. You ever tried sleeping through a cat staring at you?

He'll also lay right by head and purr. Which would lull me to sleep if it weren't accompanied by loud meowing in my ear.

His newest trick is to go under the bed and rattle a plastic bag RIGHT UNDERNEATH ME. I sleep next to the wall, so he knows I can't reach him there. Little bastard.

So, how does your cat wake you up?

The Horde have different ways to disrupt my sleep.

The junior horde will tickle my face with their whiskers. The senior horde prefer Death From Above, achieved by jumping full force from the top of the headboard onto my chest. Nothing quite like 15 pounds from two feet overhead onto a sleeping belly to rouse one from sleep.

They are a funny bunch, aren't they. They want what they want, when they want it. My new kitty is only seven months old, so we're trying some new "rules". . . yeah, I said rules. . . with a cat. Nietzsche, the cat in my icon usually comes to visit me while it is still dark out and no way am I getting up then. Then my husband gets up at 6:30, but doesn't feed him. After all, he can go nibble on his dry food anyway. So what I do is wait until after I've made my coffee (even though it's decaf) and sometimes let him wait until 10 or so. So far, he's a very good boy and he waits w/o driving me nuts. My previous cat meowed so much I had to give in. But, I do think that is the trick. Make them wait when you can. At dinner time, he joins me in the kitchen while I'm cooking and he reminds me that he's there waiting for "can".
