There isn't a snooze on a furry alarm clock

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I should have never gotten up at 4:30am to use the bathroom. It woke the boys. From 4:32 (the time I got back from the bathroom) until 7:15 they ran over my head, pawed at my face, and made noises like they were being starved to death. I also have a question, how can two cats weighing about 25 lbs total sound like a heard of wild horses when running?

I don't know, but 3 little girl kitties I know can sound like a herd of cattle And I wish they did have a snooze on them. Daisy does the same thing every morning, crawls all over ya and then licks your hand till you either pet her or put your hand under the covers

At 3:30 this morning mine decided it was time to induct the babies into the "Kitty500"... All six of them (including Tiger) were running through our bedroom and across the bedroom like bats outta hell! I looked down on the floor, and there was Tiger, with one of the babies in a headlock. I panicked at first, then quickly realized he was bathing one while the other was batting at his tail. The other 2 were on the end of bed wrestling...as little as they are, they sure can make some noise

I laughed when I saw the title of this thread! A furry alarm clock... I was hoping to sleep in today but Callie's wet nose and loud motor purr wouldn't let me! She likes to snuggle in the mornings... she pushes her face into mine and kneads my neck with her claws, I mean paws. It's so cute but impossible to go back to sleep

I actually bought some earplugs for this very reason...I haven't slept so well in ages...

Trout meows and meows at about 7am every morning on the weekend, and I just put those earplugs in and its like she doesn't exist

My husband says that it has something to do with me being a woman. When Bit meows I think "I should really do something about that", when he hears it he thinks "Gosh, someone should really do something about that."

Usually one of my cats wakes me in the morning. If Abby can't then Chynna comes in and tries, or vice versa. Today I actually woke them up, hehe

I don't know how many times I have laid there at 4 am with a very full bladder not wanting to get up because I know that it would turn Lucy into a pest. She starts scratching at the carpeting, getting into things, making all kinds of noise. Then Carly decides that she should eat and meows and meows and meows. Once she's done, then she will sit on me (not realizing that I can't get up if she's sitting on me).

Our version of a snooze button is to groan, get up, go to the bathroom, and then run back into the bedroom faster than the kitties and shut the door and then, pile lots of pillows onto our heads.

It usually buys us about a half hour before the door scratching commences and we have no choice but to submit to feline demands

Wow, I must be really lucky, Villy usually waits till a fairly respectable time to wake me up! Today it was 8.30am, but now I've said that she'll probably wake me up really early tomorrow!! She does usually ask to be let out or fed when my s.o. gets up for work at 4.30am, but then she comes back to bed with me and snugles

I was just taking a nap and 8-Bit dive bombed my chest. He seems to think that my necklace is a kitty toy. I'm going to have to rent a hotel room to get a good night sleep.

BF doesn't even think that. I doubt even his subconscious notices that the cats think that they are starving. Anyway, the cats know who's side of the bed to pull their antics on - no point trying to wake purrpa - it's not gonna happen.

I actually have fantasies about that.

Every now and then I still do what I made a habit of as a kid...when I hear the 'herd' come running...I jerk my knees up to my chest super fast. I could be in a deep sleep and I've done it. And my cats aren't even allowed in the bedroom now! When I was a kid, Glory and Tinsel (RB) would run from one end of the house to the other and Glory would use the wall as a springboard or something and do like a matrix move. I learned real quick to pull my legs up or she'd run over my stomach...Not fun!

nope, there sure isn't. when I open my eyes, Tiger comes up and slams into my side really hard with his body. like he is saying get up already, mom! it's time for breakfast. Miagi just meows to wake me up and the vocal little brat won't stop meowing until I get to their feeding place to feed them. and my dogs bark when they think I have slept long enough.

How I woke up today: Paw to the face, pitiful meow, scratching at the wall, then silence. Then a sniff in my ear and a lick to my cheek. DH usually feeds them at 6:45am. It was 7:05 when this started. The boys went from hungry to "I'm going to call the ASPCA if you don't feed me NOW!" starving in 20 minutes. Thank goodness I needed to get up anyway.
