Chester not only howls when it's time to get fed, but also if I have my door shut to my bedroom or if the alarm goes off after a nap.
To get fed in the morning he meows, purrs, licks my face (somtimes my eyelids, man I hate that!), eats my hair, bites my feet/legs if they're hanging out, jumps on me and the newest one is jumping up on my dresser and methodically knocking stuff off because he knows it drives me nuts.
This morning I closed the door because I had half an hour before my alarm and he actually managed to knock the door open after about 20 mins. I have no idea how he did it! All I heard was "thump thump thump" and there was a cat licking my face, purring and meowing frantically.
I'd so love just one morning off of wetfood duty.
