The Back up alarm clock.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I am no longer permited to sleep past the alarm clock, Duke won't allow it. No matter where he is in the house once he hears the alarm he's on the bed meowing in my ear. Not just one pitiful little meow, but "meow, meow, meow..." similar to the anoying sould of the alarm clock. Sibohan has actually taken a few swipes at him he would rather have her beauty sleep sleeping on my pillow.
So my question is, are some cats "morning people" and others not?

The minute i stir, even if it's just to have a look at the clock to see what time it is, Sophie thinks it's time we all got up

She'll sit at the bedroom door yelling, and i mean yelling! at the top of her voice, then she'll walk over to the bed, stand on her back legs and start tapping my arm or face with her paw I eventually get up to let her out the bedroom, but i have to go downstairs to switch the house alarm off first.

Rosie on the other hand is so patient and will lie at the bottom of the bed until i get up.

These light mornings don't help either because Sophie's awake from about 4.30.a.m

I'd be happy to be allowed to sleep until the alarm went off, never mind past it. Mine are like Rosie - the slightest stir and they think that means getting up time. Mosi will have a stretch, a look out of the window and then switch on his hyper drive I wouldn't mind if it wasn't 5am, or sometimes earlier.

One of my cats, Petey, likes to wake me up before my alarm goes off just to remind me that he is hungry... He will lay next to my head on the bed, meow a couple times and stare at me until I wake up. If I ignore him, he just gets more insistent and mad. I have learned to get up, give him food then go back to bed. It's a never ending cycle! I have just learned to live with it.

I'm glad there's somebody else out there with a cat like my Cindy Lou

She will jump up on the bed, walk around to hubby to say "hi," then come start harassing me til I get up. She will knead on me, walk on me, tickle me (the other morning she tickled my nose with her tail), or just sit and stare at me until I get up and feed her. I've also learned to get up, get the food, and go back to bed (she's trained me pretty good!).

Swanie is usually more patient, but sometimes he'll start tugging on the blankets until I acknowledge him. The minute I get up, though, he wants his morning pets.

I haven't been able to sleep in since we got cats. But I can't say I wasn't warned beforehand

Midir likes to remind me at 5:00 am that the alarm clock is going to go off in an hour, then he keeps reminding me until it does. And god help me if I wake up at 4am to go to the bathroom ... I'm never allowed to go back to sleep!

Mine never wake me up, I'm ususally the one who has to wake THEM up They all sleep around me, so in order to get out from under the covers, I have to move them over, and with an average of 5 kitties sleeping with me, by the time I get the last one out of the way, the first one is back where she started They make me late more often than not, who wants to get out of bed with 5-6 snuggly kitties surrounding them!!??

Max is certainly a morning boy - though thankfully he only likes to wake his Daddy! As soon as it's light outside (or he thinks it might be) he purrs like a tank, licks his Dads face, hair, arms and even his armpits if he's sleeping in the right position.... that's love for you!

Stoli wakes me up too. I've learned to just get up, give him some food and then go back to bed.

Pudge did what Sophie does for a few weeks. After a combination of giving her treats for staying quiet and ignoring her when she didn't, she stopped. I hope that doesn't start up again.

Chynna only wakes me up sometimes. Her method is to jump on the bed and clamber up to the pillow next to me and move in nice and close and lick my face. Unfortunately for her I usually start to rub her chin, head and ears and she purrs and I fall back asleep again from her purring, LOL

Abby on the other hand is a persistent little thing. She will sit on the floor next to the bed and purr loudly and stare at me. Apparently she does that when I'm too close to the edge and she has no room to jump up and settle in beside me. So I move over and she jumps up and resumes staring at me, lol Then she will walk up and down the length of the bed a couple of times making sure she smacks me in the head with her tail as she turns around. Then she will settle down near my pillow, butt end near my head and smack me in the head with her tail some more. If I don't get up, she jumps down and repeats the ritual. If I ignore her long enough she will leave me alone.

I think the 2 of them get together and discuss who wakes me up each day. Usually it's Abby, but sometimes Chynna, but I think they've figured out that there is a better chance of getting me out of bed if Abby wakes me up, hehe

I've had to lock my bedroom door just so I can sleep past 4am! it took a few weeks, but afteer that time, i found that my cat was able to calm down a bit and not bother me as much when I'm sleeping! Although, the first few nights I had to hear her crying outside my door!

heyu, normally yells at me when i get up, like come on its not time yet, i need more sleep

however if i get up to go to bathroom or something, after i come back to to bed, she will come and lay down on my chest some.

broni on the other hand is normally ready to get up and go when ever you get out of bed.
