Romeo's Reverse Psychology Wake up Tactic
Sat, Sep 28
This morning, I tried to trick the staff into thinking I wasn’t really interested in BREAKFAST to see if that might get the food in my belly faster. Here’s how it all went down:
First, I made a lot of noise in the hallway. I ran up the stairs super fast, just like the house cheetah I am. Then I yeowled in the hallway. Just once. Okay, twice.
I jumped up onto the bed and chased an imaginary bug. Then, I jumped over female staff once, then twice. Then again. Notice I was not directly engaging with the sleeping human.
I chased the imaginary bug again. Then, jumped off the bed, went around to the other side, jumped up on male staff’s side, jumped over him and sat down and stared at the female. I saw one of her eyes open. Then I made my move.
I casually walked to the end of the bed, jumped down (making sure it was a very noisy thud when I hit the floor) and sauntered over to the laundry basket. I hopped in and settled in as if I was going back to sleep. See what I did there? Acted like I didn’t care one way or another if she got me BREAKFAST.
“Romeo? Are you okay?” she asked, standing over me. *Snicker* I just looked up at her and gave her a silent meow.
“Do you want BREAKFAST?”
I yawned and closed my eyes.
“Come on. Let’s get you BREAKFAST!” she said and headed downstairs.
I waited about 30 seconds (really, all I could stand) and ran after her.
And BAM! That’s how you do it friends.
