Another feature I have is: I troll the bed at the veriest first light of day checking to see if Mom is conscious. I wait quietly by her face if it is still dark, testing the waters so to speak. I lean in close to see if her eyes are closed and if her breathing indicates sleep or (pump paw in the air) just pretending to sleep.
I feel I got her attention (she did) when I horked on the carpet and when I scratched the same carpet a moment before. Those sounds wake moms up from a sound sleep. Rather like their baby humans once upon a time when they were stirring in a room away...moms can hear everything.
Mom is going to work out this morning so she may as well get in there and make the bed, dress and assemble her face, pretty much in that order.
