How not to be woken up

There are plenty of lovely, easy ways to be woken. Your spouse/partner/person you share your bed and heart with could nibble on your ear and drop kisses down your cheek until you woke up. You could be brought breakfast in bed and allow the tantalizing aroma of coffee and pancakes rouse you from your slumber. If you have a child, you could be woken by them crawling into bed with you for a bit of a snuggle. All of these methods, and more, allow you to be woken gently, easily and with a serious lack of shock to the system.

There are, however, ways of being woken up that should be outlawed. Here is one:
One cat.
On your pillow.
Hoiking up a hair ball.
On your hair.
At 5 a.m.




Kerri? I think I found your new alarm clock. I'll even sell it to you, cheap.

Edit to add:






This is what he looks like now, so gerroff my back about the haircut. If you had that much hair and it was 95F for weeks at a time in the summer, you'd probably be HAPPY to walk around looking like a mutant poodle, too.

welcome to my life. almost...every...single...morning. Except it is not hairballs, it is vomit. Ahh, yes, life with 2 (out of the 5) cats who have inflammatory bowel disease.

We really need hardwood floors instead of carpet.

If you shaved me like that, I'd have worse things to deposit on your pillow than hairballs.

I'm just saying.

LOL at the comments!

Yes, definately not a nice way to be woken up - I'm sure that one would make me jump as well.

Not good.

That haircut was last summer, so if he's still pissed about that, then he's one grudge-holding cat.

Kerri. said...

How much?

And does it come in gray?

Juliabohemian said...

It was probably revenge for that haircut.

art-sweet said...

Cats have long memories.

Kerri, can I suggest you put yourself on the list for the clocky?

When my cat was fixed they shaved her stomach. She laid on her back all the time, waiting for someone to rub her stomach. She was so happy we actually thought of shaving it again just for fun.

I actually asked the vet about it, but he said that cats have their own way of cooling off that is different than ours.

Omg your cat is So cute and that hair style is funky!!!! :) Fair play cutting his hair, as you say it can't be nice having all that fur stuck to you when it's so damned hot.

Pop some shades on too, it'll look damn cute.

Though the hair ball thing, ewwww.

I actually love the cat like this!! He's too cute!!
My cat used to be bulimic. No, really. She used to eat like a pig then throw up. Now she's much better and she has overcome her bulimic tendancies. Maybe she was trying to emulate the cats down the street who were skinnier?
