So I’m a night owl and usually go to bed at 1 or 2 am and sleep for 10 hours. That’s how I function and makes me happy. Dac thinks that is WAY to long to wait to be fed so she insists on being fed between 7 am and 10 am. Here’s her routine:
Scratch at the blanket so the human lets me in.
Climb all over the human and poke her with my nails.
Lick her hands or start to make biscuits.
Climb out of blanket.
Repeat 1-4 until human gets up.
I get up and fed all three fur balls and climb back into bed. I don’t free feed my cats because of the risk of obesity. Java is a pig and would eat herself silly. I would love to free feed Dac, but not going to happen because of my other two cats. It’s much easier to have healthy weight cats than have to get a cat to lose weight.
Everyone who has a cat knows that cats think the world revolves around them so the human is below and the cat is on top.
During the summer months I’m super busy and sort of (in my mind) neglect my cats. I feel kind of guilty and being a crazy cat lady I promised to make up for it. A week ago I got a cat tower and it’s their mom feels guilty, Christmas, and birthday present. Dac is in love with the cat tower. Eddie and Java are sometimes on it, but the amount Dac spends on it, it was well worth it.
So I’m sound asleep, like totally out cold and nothing should wake me up. While I woke up with a start. I’m half asleep, heart is pounding, and I’m confused. There is a racket going on and I don’t know where or what that noise is. My neighbors are being inconsiderate and yabbering away in the dead of the night (the walls are paper thin)? Oh wait, maybe that’s my neighbor sleep talking and I shouldn’t be too pissed off that he woke up me. Than I become more awake and more aware. Oh that noise is coming from around my knees. What??? Is that Eddie snoring?? Before I can totally figure it out I fall fast asleep. My brain decided I wasn’t in any danger and shut off again.
In the morning I still couldn’t figure it out, Eddie snoring or my neighbors yabbering in the middle of the night. I’m leaning to Eddie snoring really really loudly. Now snoring can be a sign of bad health in a cat, but I’ve figured Eddie is healthy. He just snores really loudly at night.
