Waking up the Lazy Human
by Cat Crazy
The lazy human plays snooze alarm way too many mornings! She grabs her alarm clock and puts it under her blankets or pillow, then curls up and goes back to sleep. When the alarm continues to go off, she just keeps hitting that annoying button. Fear not, for we’ve found a way to make her get up and stay up. It’s well worth the effort to wake her as not only does that get us food and fresh water, but it gets our litter boxes cleaned as well. We even take turns and split up the duties.If the human is laying on her back, then Mac saunters over, sits on her chest and rolls around making sure to dig her nails into every surface possible. Her sharp claws can penetrate through 4 layers of blankets. If that doesn’t work, then Pepe leaps and lands on her bladder with his 18 pounds. <<OOOFFFF!>> If she anticipates his arrival by tenting her knees, he scales her limbs and hangs off or he climbs onto her chest and sticks his furry face and whiskers really close to her face. Caesar shortly arrives and head bumps her arm and shoulder. Sometimes he licks her hands because he knows it tickles. (That’s his revenge for all the times she touches is paws!)If the human is laying on her side curled up in a pathetic little ball, then Corky or Pepe hops onto her hip and stretches out on her until her leg cramps. Meantime, Mac attacks her on her pillow by wrapping her furry tummy around the human’s head and face. It’s important to bury the human’s nose and mouth in cat fur, as that usually gets her sniffling and sneezing. Imagine, she’s allergic to us! Sometimes Fireball balances on her shoulder while all this is going on or brings her a toy mouse. And Caesar does the arm-licking thing on any exposed skin. Mornings are so much fun in this house!
