Early this morning, I ran through the big bedroom at high speed and jumped up on the bed, landing on male staff member’s pillow. As he is not typically my fastest way to food, I walked past him (brushing tail across his face, of course) to the female staff member’s …

I recognize I have an unfair advantage when it comes to waking up the staff each morning. I am smarter, more strategic and much, much hungrier. Seems absolutely ridiculous that I even have to rely on them to get my food. Today, I totally used my whiskers this morning. I …

The unintended (yet fantastic!) consequence of a bedroom intruder this morning was that BREAKFAST came early! Some sort of flying thing was zipping around the big bedroom this morning before the sun was up. As soon as we became aware of the situation, Pugsley and I went after THE THING …

When waking up one’s human staff, it’s good to be as cute as possible whenever you have the opportunity. When I can combine adorableness and wake up tactics I find it highly efficient and effective. For example, this morning I was meowing at the female staff manager to wake her …

In my line of work, persistence pays off. This morning, I stood behind the female staff member’s slumbering head and pushed my head into the back of hers. Again and again and again. She thought she was being sly by pushing her head back in order to thwart my efforts …

Today’s wake up tactic was the world-renowned “Fuzzy Butt Move.” Many of you are likely familiar with this strategy. I positioned myself on the pillow with my derriere in the female staff member’s face. Then, I slowly inched my hindquarters backward so that her head, little by little, lost pillow …

This morning, the female staff was sleeping on her back, right at the edge of the bed. I MEOW.MEOW.MEOW.MEOW’D into her ear from middle of the bed but this did not work (It’s just a formality anyway. It never works).Then, I decided to try the other ear. I jumped across …

I started the morning out okay. I started my meowmeowmeowmeowmeow just about the same time that the Running-Jumping-Screaming-FrozentheMovieLoving Creature started complaining about something from her room. Male staff grumbled and heaved himself out of bed and went to see what the Creature was yelling about. Of course, I took this …

I discovered the female staff member laying in an odd sleeping position this morning. She was on her back, with her arms up over her head. And, as if that wasn’t wonderful enough, her mouth was wide open. She was completely vulnerable, on many different levels, to my attack. I’m …

Today’s wake up was a total bust. I was soooooo hungry; to the point of starving, actually. So, I was in survival mode; thinking with my belly and not my head. I started way too early (4 a.m.) and was way too aggressive (standing over female staff’s head and meowing …
