Someone needs to inform her.

I'm thinking about sending a formal letter to my cat to let her know it's not cool to be my personal snooze button and various habits she has picked up.

I imagine our letter would go something like this:

Dear Delia,

Every Saturday morning, when we are lazy, you'll hop up on the bed and walk all over us trying to wake us up. Or if we are laying on our sides, you'll perch yourself right on top of us to get a catnap. We can hear your little motor running. You're just purring away. Which I think means you're happy and actually we think it's pretty cute and a good way to start our Saturday, but you're LOUD. Tone that engine down or we're going to overhaul.

But this morning, when the alarm clock went off and I hit snooze, I meant it. I wanted those extra 5 minutes in the bed, sans Aaron since he had just left, all warm and snuggly. By.myself. I didn't need you to hear the alarm and pounce on the bed and peek around me to see if my eyes were open.
I hit the SNOOZE button cat, what does that mean to you?
Then I suppose as a curtosy, you jumped down and ran away giving me another minute before you returned, and this time jump up on the bed, right beside my head, scaring the living jeebus out of me. I open one of my eyes and see you nose to nose with me, and when you see my eye open, all you can say is: Mrroww and purr? You have food, cat, don't play dumb with me.

So, I humored you this morning and gave in, wasting 4 more precious snooze minutes, but don't think this is going to happen everyday. You may have won the battle, but you didn't win the war.


Who's gonna let Momma sleep now hmm?

PS: When I come home, I want to relax for a minute before you start in on how your day was. I know your day was full of chasing your toys and life is hard, but really, how many ways can you say the same thing? And when daddy comes home and then goes out to put food on the grill for dinner, and you cry because you think he left or like he accidently shut the door on you. Not cool. I'm the one who fought for you cat, he's a dog type of guy. So there.

Happy Hump Day!

    This is so funny ! I want a kitten terribly! We opted for a leather sofa instead? Anyhow, cute post! Your kitty loves you :)

    lol I feel that way about Jake! The VERY latest he sleeps is 5:00am, but most of the time he starts nudging (and often jumping) on me around 4:00 and I spend the next hour telling him to lay down. Fortunately Katie is the best little sleeper and often sleeps until 10:00 or later! It's fantastic :)

    LOL!! Too funny! My cat does the EXACT same things. 1.5 seconds after my alarm goes off...she jumps right beside my face, presses her nose to mine, and meows. She has plenty of food & water so I don't know what her deal is. And, when I walk in the door she starts her little crying session...I guess she's probably cursing at me for leaving her, but I interpret it as she's happy to see me again. :)

    OK my cat is the same but with one small difference; she hates my alarm and has figured out how to turn it off. If I don't wake up before she jumps on the button I don't wake up at all. Little buger.

    Could be worse. Your cat could be like mine, who jams his entire nose up one of my nostrils to get me moving in the morning...
