4AM – Mom’s alarm goes off – I must hide
4:15AM – Mom’s alarm goes off and she starts getting out of bed. It is time to wind between her ankles and try to trip her up.
4:30AM – Mom pulls the covers up over her spot in bed and runs her hand under so I can play “mouse under the covers” – Ok that’s enough! Time for napping
5AM – Mom starts waking up the Ol’ Curmudgeon. I ignore her.
5:20AM – The Ol’ Curmudgeon gets up. I ignore him
10AM – I go out to the living room to remind Mom to FEED ME. She is working and doesn’t notice me. So I leap onto the back of her chair and ooze down onto the arm, then down into the crevice between her and the arm, then put my head and one paw across her laptop. AHA!! She realizes I’m here! Time to EAT!!
10:20AM – Curl up in my canvas box and nap
12:30PM – Follow Mom into kitchen and hope she will leave pastrami unguarded again, but she either is not having pastrami or seems to have learned her lesson. [– SEE: DAY FROM HADES –]
1:00PM – Curl up in my canvas box and nap
3:00PM – The Ol’ Curmudgeon comes in and nudges me. I change position and nap some more
4:30PM – Follow the Ol’ Curmudgeon into the kitchen and hope he drops something on the floor. He never does, but I am ever hopeful
5:00PM – Look out the back door and make nasty noises at the outdoor cats in the backyard – MY YARD!!
5:30PM – Look out the patio door and make nasty noises at the outdoor cats on the patio – MY PATIO!!
6:00PM – Curl up in my canvas box and nap. Mom is in her chair, the Ol’ Curmudgeon is in his chair. My world is as it should be.
6:15PM – Climb into the Ol’ Curmudgeon’s lap and purr
6:30PM – Get down and climb into Mom’s lap and purr
6:45PM – Curl up in my canvas box and nap.
8:30PM – Time to eat. Start reminding Mom to FEED ME. Get up on her chair and push at her arm and hands until she shuts down her laptop and gets up. The Ol’ Curmudgeon helps me by reminding her it’s bedtime.
9:00PM – “Food, glorious food! … Don’t care what it looks like!”
9:30PM – Move over! I’m getting into MY spot in the bed – between you. You are trying to sleep too close together. Move apart, I say. I put my feet against Mom and my back against the Ol’ Curmudgeon and push – hard. Ahhhhh! Now I have more room!
10:00PM – PRRRRRRRRRrrrrrrrrrr-r-r-r–r–r—r—r—-r
