New and Improved Alarm Clock

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I took Friday off from work so I would be able to enjoy my birthday evening on Thursday. Stayed up late watching a movie and wanted to sleep in. Well, someone forgot to tell my alarm clock that I didn't have to get up. I did find out that Trent has a 30 minute snooze, all I had to do was pet and snuggle him for a couple minutes. He does have a pretty good internal kitty-clock, he literally came back every 30-35 minutes meowing until I gave him more lovin's. LOL It was definitely more pleasant to wake up to than a buzzer.

The only problem that I see with this new and improved alarm system is that he's kinda hard to program for which days I want to wake up early.

Otis is the same, some snuggles and he is happy for around 45 mins, the only problem is that he starts his alarm call at around 4.45AM.
He's lucky he's so cute!!!

On the weekends, Zoey decides that I still have to get up for work and yeowls at around 9:30 am LOL.

Maybe she's trying to tell me I'm late

Sammycat and Oscar are the worlds worst for alarms. If you don't get up when they first start the loving on you to wake you up the claws on the feet come next. Boy talk about a wake up call

This morning when I was trying to sleep in a bit they came in doing their usual thing and the next thing I know my toes are bleeding all of this before coffee and to Quote Merlot "They are lucky that they are so cute"

I wish that I could reset the dogs' bladders, for weekend time. If one of us isn't up, by 5:30, Ike starts whimpering and carrying on and he gets Pearl agitated. She starts thumping her tail and shaking her crate. Then, Rowdy gets into the act and agitates the dogs even more.

Russell will sit at the foot of the bed and bat my foot gently if my other half doesn't stir. If that doesn't work, he'll plonk himself on my chest or belly knowing that I will wake up to that and he'll get his breakfast after my morning routine at which he and Esper follow me around making sure that I'm quick about it.

Neither of my cats tries to wake me up. They do run around in the middle of the night, and I sometimes hear them.

Tara, the cat I had before, used to sit by my head and stare into my face if I didn't get up early enough for her. If I turned my head to the other side, I would feel her walk around me and come sit and stare into my face again with that unrelenting look cats have. We'd do that for a while, and I'd finally give in and feed her.

I'm one lucky person. After the initial 2 weeks of kitten craziness with Spike, the little guy has let me sleep. He rarely wakes me up in the morning, I think I can think of twice in three years that he's been at the blinds for some odd reason, and the noise woke me. And he lets me sleep through the night as well. I guess it helps that I can sleep through most anything though.

Max is our alarm clock, unfortunately while the "real" clock is set for 6:30, she is set for 5:30. She jumps up onto my hip and says "WOW!" (we swear that's what she is saying, it sounds just like it!). She doesn't have a snooze button, she just repeats herself.

If I don't get up and feed my cats, Fred will go straight for the bladder and start kneading.

Oh Krazy Kat2, you poor thing, LOL!

Heidi - I guess you're lucky he's GOT a snooze button, LOL!!!!!!

I might have written about this before, so sorry if I'm going senile on you, but recently Shelly has decided he wants pets around 4:00 in the morning. He wakes me up by pulling my hair!!! If we ever move into a home, I SWEAR they're not going to be allowed in the bedroom at night! Yeah...RIGHT!

Boy Boy would wake me up every single day at 730am..he would climb onto the bed and then starts stepping all over you..if that doesn't work, he will just start yelling into your ears....that works every time.. the moment i get out of bed, he would just snuggle up to my warm pillow and fall fast asleep right there..

LOL! Heidi - Spot does that to my husband BUT his timing changes when the moon is full... then Spot wakes us up at weird times like 3 and 4 in morning... He jumps on the bed, running full force meowing every 15-20 minutes until someone GETS up! Want him?

Midnight always used to wake me up 10 minutes before my alarm clock rang. It was really helpful on the days I actually had to go to work. It didn't matter if I had a day off, Midnight would still start trying to wake me up at the same time. She would start by purring loudly and giving a lot of headbutts. If that didn't work, she would start licking me while she continued to purr loudly. If it STILL didn't work, she would put her claws out and just press them into my skin in various places...and of course, she would be still purring.

Snowball never used to participate in any of this, but now that Midnight has gone to the Rainbow Bridge, he has taken over her alarm clock duties.
