Have you ever had the power go out in the middle of the night only to find out you slept late because your alarm did not go off? Do you hate the harsh beeping noises your alarm makes and would prefer a more gradual wake up experience? Look no further than your nearest pet shelter!!
A cat is a great alarm clock. They start around 7am by sitting next to you and purring softly. They may progress to pawing at your hair/face. This is followed by walking across your body, including all the sensitive parts, which is almost guaranteed to wake you up! If this doesn't work, around 8am they go all out by lightly nipping your nose and meowing in your ear. If you risk a peep by slightly opening your eyes you see they are sitting right next to your head and are looking for any signs of life. If they see you peeking but you still will not get up, the last phase is a running head start as they pounce on your stomach.
"Good Morning, Mommy! Feed us!"
Mark never allows this when he is home. We sleep with the bedroom door closed. But, when it is just me I cannot resist letting the little foot warmers in the room with me. They really do help me get up on time for work :)
