LOL! What a fun thread!
The "kids" are usually bounding around the living room playing when we wake up (if we're working from home). So when we wake up, I head straight for the kitchen, try not to step on them while I get the light on. (We live in an R.V., so the living room is 25 feet from the bedroom, and the kitchen is inbetween!)
They DON'T want hugs and kisses when they're in "play" mode. !!!!!!
Lazlo makes crazy-eights through my legs and talks like we're starving him while I get breakfast ready for them. Shelly just sits there like a good boy looking up at me like "Well - how long is it going to take today?"
We leave dry food out for them all day, and feed them wet food like a treat in the a.m. and p.m. But the only part they like is the gravy, so we mix several tablespoons of water with each bowl to make a "yummy" soup (not!).
When they lick up their gravy, Gary dumps the leftover into bowls he's making for the outside cats
. In the meantime, I clean the litterbox while they're slurping up their soup (it's much better than having them come climb all over me to see what I'm doing to the litterbox. It's been four months since they've moved inside and started using a litterbox, and they're still obsessed!
Then while Gary showers I make the bed and move all the cat toys, bags and boxes in there, so that we can have the living room to work. I play with them for a bit, then shower. Then we're ready to begin the day! (Our breakfast...)
(We snuggle with the kitties when they're ready to poop out for the day - usually around 11:00am or noonish - unless we actually had to go to the office, then we grab them despite the "play mode" and give them each a kiss before we take off! :tounge2: ).
