I don't know what's wrong with mom. You would think she'd give me an award for what I did this morning, but instead, I got the stink eye. Hmmm...
I awoke on the bed and realized that it was mom waking up time. I can tell because I have to go potty and my tummy is hungry and rumbly. I can also tell cause Simon is by mom's head, staring at her and ready to wake her up to go feed him his canned food. But mom's alarm didn't go off. Uh oh! Mom's going to be late!! Super puppy and kitty forces unite!
I started by slowly belly crawling up to mom and licking her face. She grunted and rolled over.
Plan B. I began crawling all over mom. I got a "Get off me!" from mom who burrowed deeper in the covers. Time for Plan C--the Cat plan.
Simon took over from here...he is quite magical to watch, he's got it down to an art. It starts off with meowing/howling. Then he literally runs all over mom, at times placing a paw on her face. If that doesn't work, he starts randomly scratching at doors/walls/anything to annoy mom enough to get out of bed. Mia even joined in with some mewing. I added to Plan C by chasing Alley under the bed, causing her to make devil noises.
Mom reaction--she got up, took Simon to the cat room and closed the door, then went back to bed. Uh oh. I was now reduced to using my puppy staring powers to stare at mom as she slept, occasionally putting my cold, wet nose up to her face. Then, I was shocked to see Simon had escaped the cat room and was back for more! He's AMAZING!! This time, I chased Alley ONTO the bed as Simon howled. Nothing.
Figuring mom just wasn't going to get up, I had almost accepted our failure, but then Simon did the unthinkable. He unplugged mom's alarm clock. With a perfectly timed nose bump, mom rolled over, saw this, said some "words" and just got up. Success!!!
Aren't you proud of us mom?? We didn't let you oversleep! Wait, what? Daylight Saving time? What the crap is that?? What, it's actually only 5:30 and not 6:30?? Oooohhhh! Our bad...yeah....we love you...you know what would make you feel better? Giving us some noms...yep, that should do it.
Sidenote: boys are stupid...dad and Duncan slept through all of this!!
