Mac has developed a whole series of devious tactics for waking the human up in the middle of the night and getting her out of bed long enough to refill the crunchy bowl. (Try as we can, neither Pepe nor the human have been able to teach Mac how to spin the wheel on the automatic feeder so she can dispense a few crunchies for herself…and why would she when she can torment the human?)
One of Mac’s most annoying tactics is to stand up in one of the kitty beds and pull down the switch on the wall, killing all power to the bed. That effectively stops the mobile phone from recharging (and backing up files), shuts off the light (if it was on at the time), and kills power to the far-infrared mattress pad — a real pain in the backsides in cold weather. To make her threats even more effective, she makes sure she scratches loudly on the wall before killing the power. If that fails to wake the human, an alternative method is to jump down to the floor and pull the power cord out of the wall that feeds all the bedside goodies. Such a little monster!
