I am getting her up at 0630 as I always did now that I have adjusted to the time change (Fall Back). However I can tell she does not wish to get up when I want her to. This morning I went through my indexed book of "Cat Tactics for getting Them Out of Bed" and I happened on chapter 8. I have no idea how I kept missing that chapter and the valuable information it contains.
I followed it exactly Kitties, and it worked. I despaired of it working however. I had crept up the bed softly and put my face up against hers as always. However, chapter 8 states "Lick their eyelids" so I did. Amazingly, that did not bring a response. (Mom here: Oh yes it did! I was trying with all my might not to react to the eyelid thing, but it was awful) So, following outlined procedure I laid down with my back facing her, backing right up against her chest and chin as close as I could make it. She later mentioned she felt my heart beating for the first time ever. That's how tightly up against her I was. My Tuxie body was warm and the purring was my extra touch to charm her. Adding my heartbeat was genius. Thank you chapter 8!
Well, she continued to be asleep (Mom here: I desperately wished for sleep) so I went to chapter 9. It instructed that one walk carefully and politely around the human's head and settle against the human on the other side..purring loudly and being sweet as sugar. Voila! Her arm came out of the covers and over to me to enfold me. Ahhhh....TOUCHDOWN! Breakfast within minutes! Mission Accomplished. The End.
