Kitties! I have a new way of getting Mom up!
Picture this! 0610 and I leap onto the bed as always. I know she knows I am there. How can you not? So with no response from her, I checked her eyes. Closed. I inserted whiskers into her nostrils. (Mom here: She did!) I saw some wincing and nose movement. Ah! Now we're cookin'. I checked her eyes again. Closed. I walked around and around her head...nothing. Then, I went to the bedside lamp. I do this every morning and every night but this morning, I did it with gusto. I rubbed my face on the shade so much and so hard, VOILA! Eureka! I finally succeeded in knocking it off the stand. It's GLASS too. Extra points. That got her up with a loud voice toward me. However, she got up..that was the point after all, and I got breakfast.
pee ess: That little triptych on the table is something mom found in a Russian store in Charlotte NC.
