I'm wondering if any of you have the same problem with living, non-crowing alrms clocks that I do. On work days, I'm up between 3:30 and 4:00 A.M. Of course, the animals come first, so I feed the cats their canned food and feed the dog before I even start the coffee. However, on the weekends, I would like to sleep in until around 5:00-not unreasonable, to my thinking. My indoor cats have different ideas. Chushi, the Japanese Bobtail, who sleeps peacefully on the bed all night, does laps around it, jumping over my head every lap. Storm, who is a beautiful cream-colored apricot point blue-eyed something that has the size and coat of a Maine Coonand also sleeps on the bed, just sits and stares at me in the dark. I can see him silhouetted against the blinds. Finally, Bandit, a black & white shorthair, gets up on the dresser beside the bed and knocks things off. This morning it was the Altoid tins I'm collecting for Miss Prissy. At least the dog, an older Boston Terrier, is considerate enough to leave me alone. It's useless to try to sleep in. I've spoiled them. It's my own fault.
