One of the worst ways to wake up...

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
is having 8-Bit knock over a glass of water onto your head. DH and I had the gaul to wait until 7:45am to feed him We were an hour late, the ASPCA wasn't open yet for him to phone in an abuse call, so he did the next best thing. I'm still a little upset.

It's not the best way to wake up a human 8-Bit! What a character he is.

I'm lucky with Bijou and Mika - they will wait patiently until I get up. Bijou is quite content to sleep as long as I sleep. This morning (wee hours) he was stretched out facing me with his whole leg around my neck and his throat pushed agains my nose. He couldn't have gotten any closer if he had tried, but I gotta tell you I love it.

Sibohan normally wakes me up by knocking things off the dresser, luckily the dresser is nowhere near my head.
Well look at it this way, you get to air out your pillows it's spring cleaning early this year!

Twig does that too, only he does that at 3,4 and 5 in the morning. Just when he wants attention. It's always on DH's side of the bed too. He just loves DH. He came up on the bed, last night and when I was petting him, he just sat there, when Dh started, he purred like there was no tomorrow! Spoiled baby!

Oh no, being woken up by having water tipped on you is not good. This isn't payback for a vet visit is it?

I'm sorry, but that is TOO FUNNY!!

That is why I started keeping the water by the bed in bottles.

Maybe 8-Bit thought you were thirsty?

As soon as I read the title of this thread, I said to myself "What did 8-Bit do this time?" Thankfully my kitties don't try to immitate dennis the menace.

luckily peanuts hasn't done that yet... poor you!

I'm so glad that my cats don't do that. My boyfriends mom feeds them when she wakes up in the morning so I can sleep in as late as I want.

We keep the water on the headboard in bottles. Hopefully they are large enough (Gatorade bottles) that the kitties won't knock them onto our heads.

In our house, the worst way to be woken up by Ginger is a claw stuck deep into either the side of my big toe, or the bottom of my foot. She just wants to play "Munsterz Under the Blankie" and doesn't get it that if there's only one layer on Meowmy, her claws go right through.

Earl would argue (and win!) that the worst way he's been woken up is when Trent has jumped off our 6' tall bookcase headboard and landed on his...well, um...lower abdominal area. Thankfully, Trent has only done that a couple times, and only once on purpose because he was mad at Daddy. (It wasn't funny to him, but I about died laughing!)

My Bogart did that to me at 3AM once. He liked to drink out of water glasses and tipped it too far and it fell on my head.

The lesson in this: drink out of water bottles or covered glasses!!

Geesh, that's not bad! Try a whole darn nightstand! Thanks Abilene! She's done that twice....the nightstand at my house is right beside my bed- i mean right by it.....and Abilene has always seen Vevlet- very gracefully get into my window by climbing on the headboard and walking to the window from it(it's right beside my bed) well...abilene is a bit clumsy, and fell...on two seperate occassions....knocking a vase with flowers in it, my lamp, lip gloss, my phone and caller id, my water bottle and whatever else was up there directly onto my bed and onto me!This of course freaked her out and caused her to hiss and act like she'd seen the devil himself......and yeah...me being now quite awake...i about peed myself when all that stuff came flying onto me and abilene was running around like a mad kittyso yeah...i'd gladly take just a little water vs. an entire nightstand and a psychotic kitty One of these days she will learn to be graceful...i hope

lol cute cute..

now i dont feel so bad about eazy waking me up by sticking his nose into my nose.
post #20 of 25
Conspirators! Zissou has done that too! When I smartened up and quit having water by the bed, she started punching me in the eye. Can't decide which is worse.

Bad 8-Bit! That is not how you convince your meowmy to wake up and give you scritches!

Aww thankyou! Heheh, she was in a really good mood tonight too (that's strange) She let me pet her and brush her for a really long time....she's gotten to be really sweet and affectionate lately (she was born feral...so she has a bit of a temperment at times...so we're just patient with her) / Uhh...but she sure is clumsy Always knocking things over

My kitten Tomas has tried to get his paws on the water glass more than one morning, luckily he's been unsuccessful He did manage to dump a full glass on the bed right before we were about to go to sleep one night, there huge puddle on the bed
Usually I'm woke up by "purr purr sniff sniff purr" in my ear, if I try to roll over and go back to sleep he crawls under the blanket and will dig at my back (luckily without claws)
Worst was Tomas waking me up three days ago by farting in my face

Sho used to always wake my husband up by standing on him he's lucky the cat only occasionally does that now that Sho's a big kitty (15lbs)

This thread is hilarious! I have to drink out of bottles all the time because Kahu just LOVES to play with cups - he will look right at you and knock the cups over - I think he likes the reaction more than he likes to knock the cup over. Little brat!

He wakes me up by sitting on my bladder and scratching at me. If he gets desperate, he will use his claws and certainly gets me up. I have tricked him by pretending to get up and when hes out the door, I close it. But hes getting smarter by staying by my side and walking out the door only if I do. That cat is getting too smart for his own good!!!!
