So, this is what’s been going on around here lately. Mom has forced us to learn how to be alarm clocks.
She used to go to work every day and we didn’t have to worry about making sure she got up and fed us.
Then she would come home from the office place and feed us.
It was a nice routine and we basically liked it. Now that she’s not working and is busy looking for a job, everything got messed up!
I’m in charge of getting her up in the morning. First I try meowing but she doesn’t always pay attention. Then I have to try my other tricks. Knocking things down seems to help, but some days it’s a lot of work to get her up. We’re just thankful that her brother goes to work really early and he feeds us. However, we need to get outside and explore!
I’m in charge of reminding Mom when it’s time to feed us our supper and then also our treats before we go to bed. The other afternoon Mom and Hemingway were watching a movie and they both fell asleep. It was almost time for supper so I had to go in there and meow really loud to wake up both of them. When it’s time for our treats, I have to keep circling the rooms to make sure Mom hasn’t forgotten. It’s a lot of work for a little orange boy!
We sure have our work cut out for us. Can’t someone find Mom a job so we can go back to napping?

Humans get so confused!
Pranice and Phoebe having boxing matches to get us to feed them- have you tried that?
No, thanks for the tip! 🙂
Our Dad is working and we STILL have to make sure he gets up for breakkie! He needs a good paw at 15 seconds past alarm time
Humans sure are a lot of work, aren’t they Timmy?
Oh dear, you two have to work hard for your living. I am sure you feel sympathy for Simon’s cat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMiAQkkLy1E
Oh my! Simon’s cat really has to work hard. Luckily Mom is a very light sleeper.
I do hope your human finds a job soon! It’s hard keeping them on schedule when they don’t have somewhere they need to be.
You know it!!!
We find jumping on Mum’s tummy gets her out of bed and food in our dishes best.

So far the quickest method for us is knocking things on the floor and making a big noise. 🙂
Jumping on Mommy’s tummy or purring loudly right in her face (or both) are good things to do!
We have to try all sorts of tricks. Humans are so hard to train!!!
You boys are good to take over such an important job!
It’s lots of work………..and Mom wonders why we take so many naps! 🙂
We have Misty May for wake-up duties. She head-butts Mom hard enough to break her nose and lies on her face so she can’t breathe. Either one is a sure fire winner for waking her up. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
Boy, Misty May sure takes her job seriously!!! 🙂
