New Way of Doing Business

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.

Case closed.



pee ess:  That little triptych on the table is something mom found in a Russian store in Charlotte NC.

  3. Good morning Miss Katie. I am glad mom's lamp didn't break be

  4. Katie, that was something some of the cats that came before us did - rubbing whiskers against the lampshades to get the humans to get up. With the pretty crystal lamp, it is a bit of a dangerous game, though. Maybe Mommy will jump up faster when you tickle her nose yo prevent the lamp part.

  5. Oh Katie, that is our favorite thing to do. Good job keeping that Mom on her toes. Hope you two are doing all right. Sending big hugs. Take care.

  6. Oh Katie, how naughty, lol. You little stinker. So glad Mom's lamp didn't break or you probably would have had an even louder noise. You must be careful.

  7. glad the lamp didn't break - that might have gotten you in trouble. :) good job gettin an early breakfast!

  8. Did it break? Huh? Huh? You get extra points if it broke. I just have to sniff near TW cos she knows if she doesn't get up, I'll attack her with gusto.

  9. Sweet Katie you have to be the best alarm clock we know. :) Mumsy says those whiskers in the nostrils would have been enough to get her to her feet and sneezing to boot. Maybe next time the whisker tickle will get your mom up and you want have to know off the lamp. Did the lamp survive the crash? Hugs and nose kisses

  10. Hahaha! Mommy laughed and laughed when she read this.
    You are such a lovable girl and can get away with anything!
    Tutu asks if you want to drop by tonight. Mommy just opened the Kragonfly!

  11. We bet next time she'll know to get up once she feels the whiskers in her nose!

  12. We must be strange, Katie, because none of ever tries to get #1 up, and she is not exactly an early riser...

    Purrs,

  13. You are always doing something. Keeps your Mom on her toes. You remind me of Riley. He has a bell on his collar for a reason. I need to know what he's doing.

    Enjoy your weekend with your Mom,

    JC

  22. Good job Katie. We MUST keep our humans on schedule because for sure they fall apart if we don't It's a good thing you didn't break the lovely lamp tho or you might be out of a home. Humans hate it when we break something, so treat lightly there.

    ReplyDelete
  23. We figure if you're posting, you're still in one piece. But we're wondering if the lamp is the same?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Good job, Katie! We'll have to try that!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh my, Miss Katie! What a persistent kitty you are! Is Mom still speaking to you?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh, I LOVE the whole "whiskers in the nostrils" thing. And, if she didn't wake up from that, the vigorous lamp moving was necessary as far as I'm concerned.

    ReplyDelete
  27. That's some fierce rubbing and it got results.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Katie,
    You have some great maneuvers for waking up humans. All kitties should study your technique. Whiskers in nostrils is a new one. Good job!

  29. Purrsonally, me LIKES to sleeps in. it is Kozmo and the Hairy Slobbery sister Cinnamon that gets Mommy up. Kozmo walks up the bed and Cinnamon follows him. Then he jumps on the dresser and starts rubbing his ace on the phone.
    Cinnamon curls around Mommy's head and licks her eyes.
    Yours is so much better as t would mean me does NOT get walked on!
    Kisses
    Nellie

  30. Nice move, Katie! But ::shudder:: I am more careful where I allow my precious whiskers to go!!

    And, yes, "Mahoney, too" Ha ha meow! You know I lubs the LadyCats...and really, what with Tutu and all--well, I couldn't leave out sweet Mahoney.....could I???

  31. I love waking my mum up. Luckily, she wakes easy!

  32. Expertly done Katie!

    Mom has a similar sized one, but a diptych. She has many icons, including several of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, her favorite.

  33. Katie, you are so lucky! Our Mommy can sleep through anything we do...and we've tried it ALL.

  34. Uh, is "stately" some kind of new code word for FAT, Katie? Is THAT what you're trying to say, Girly-Girlfiend?? Huh?? Huh??

    Hmmmmm. "Stately...."
    ::grumble, mumble, grumble::

    ReplyDelete
  35. Ahhhhh, well, okay then. As you can see, I am perhaps just the eensiest bit hypersensitive.

    A couple of the Human's NYE guests who had not seen me since the outrage of August 21 said, "Wow--I can't believe he's so much "BIGGER" than he used to be..." MOL!

    So I thought perhaps "stately" was a polite euphemism--you know, kinda like "statuesque."

    I confess I do look the tieniest bit, uh, "rounded" in that last photo..... ;-) But that's not a BAD thing!

  36. Katie way to keep your Mom on a schedule and with such flair. You are mighty strong to get a whole lamp down from a table wowie.

    ReplyDelete
  37. You are very creative Katie, and i admire your stick-to-itivness! :) You know how to wake Mom up with style!

    ReplyDelete
  38. The Katie is a harsh mistress!* :-)

    Our kitties either like to have the house to themselves first thing in the morning or they stay in bed with us, especially Gracie.

  39. Oh my Katie, I don't have to go to so much trouble to get Dad up, he feeds me...I just MEOW at the top of my voice and he comes right off the bed, gives me lots of nice scritches and pats and then if I jump down, he follows me to the kitchen, well...that's after he brushes his toofies and uses his litter box...MOL, paw pats, Savannah
