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 up for my BREAKFAST. This was not just any meow. …

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 but I know all of her tricks. I continued pushing …

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 real estate. Finally, the staff only had centimeters of the …

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 her sleeping face with full intention of landing on other …

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 as a great opportunity for an early BREAKFAST so I …

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 always up for a new challenge such as this, so …

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 incessantly). And I got kicked out of the room. Darndarndarndarn. …

I’ve been thinking about this and here’s the thing: I have been extremely easy on the staff lately when it comes to allowing them to sleep in a bit. Seriously. They’re going to start getting soft. And soft staff means lazy staff. So, it’s back on me to make sure the team is up and at ‘em and all furry …

Sometimes, I have the good fortune of coming across an unexpected wake up strategy. This morning, I was patrolling the perimeter of the bedroom as I pondered my plan of attack. Suddenly, I came across some sort of new cat toy. It was spiral and stuck out of the wall behind the door and had this fantastic little rubber tip …

Oh boy, there are SO many fantastic ways to wake up one’s staff. This morning my reluctant partner-in-crime (that’s the black cat Pugsley) and I discovered that if we run up the stairs at full speed we make fantastic creaky noises and awesome paw pounding noises. So, we played chase and I pursued Pugsley all over the house, up and …
