Time To Eat! Now!!!
During the weekday Hubby Tony always gets up earlier than me. One of the things he does before I roll out of bed is feed the cats.
Last night he had business that took him away from the house, and I went to bed knowing I had cat duty this morning. I had a hard time getting to sleep. First I was too hot and got up to turn on the ceiling fan. Then I was chilly and threw the sheet over my body. I rolled from side to side trying to get comfortable, and kept looking at the clock. Finally, almost an hour after I went to bed I fell asleep. Then I woke up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom and had to repeat the falling asleep operation all over again.
When Pepper the cat started the “feed us” process by jumping up on the bed and walking over my legs I was NOT in the mood to oblige. However, he was quite persistent. Soon his brother Jackson started in, too, meowing from the floor right next to the bed. I held out for 15 minutes before I reluctantly gave up and put food in each bowl-Pepper in the bathroom and Jackson in the main level dining room. As I crawled back in bed I heard the first birds starting to sing.
Thank goodness Tony will be home tomorrow morning to take care of the cats!
