Someone once said... there's no snooze button on a cat that wants breakfast. True!
These fine examples of feline alarm clocks show how cats provide an excellent wake up call service for their humans.
As day follows night, fiction follows function, er, um, something like that.
No wait... life imitates art... Nope, that's not quite right...
Anyway, this Simon's Cat cartoon represents reality. That's it! Cartoons are real is what I wanted to say. :)
Simon's cat shows us how the wake up call is done...
Is this the real Simon's cat? Ever wonder what your cat does while you're sleeping? Here's a time lapse video...
Will the real Simon's cat please stand up.
Warning: if you feed your cat right in the bed, don't expect the wake up visits to stop anytime soon!
Most of the time, we cat maniacs love to get a visit from one or more of our cats. In fact, I think you'll agree that a cat is the best alarm clock you could ever have.
Of course, when the human has a cold and isn't feeling good, this isn't a welcome event!
Romeo, the tabby cat in the videos above and below, is very insistent with his wake up calls. He's not afraid to draw blood!
Romeo, oh Romeo, why dost thou cut me so?
Here's a much kinder, gentler kind of wake up call.
This very disappointed looking kitty is Bubbles. He tries to convince this human it's time to get out of bed, but with no success. At one point, the cat appears to be making a plea to the camera person to help wake up the lazy human. Such mistreatment of a feline should not be allowed!
Bubbles has appeared in a Google Chrome commercial. He's fa-mouse!
So now it's your turn...
Does your cat have a morning wake up routine?
