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.
