Sekhmet, you fucker.

Lately, the cat's been going berserk at the crack of dawn. Meowing like mad, waking up everyone in the house, scaring the crap out of the kid. It's the "I want something" meow, so I've started checking food, water, and litter box before bed. Still, every morning around six thirty, MEOW MEOW MEOW STOMP STOMP STOMP MEOW.

This morning I finally figured it out. You know what this obnoxious bag of fur wants?

She wants someone to open the front door.

Everyone together, now.

Sekhmet, you FUCKER.

Just a little sun, Mom. Is that really so difficult to understand?

CATS!

Can't be missing that early morning sunshine!

Nicole said...

Ha! In the mornings when my kitty wants something, she'll meow and slap your face until you get up and give it to her.

Emily said...

Ha! I'm the wait-staff for my cat, too.

Maybe find another sunny spot, perhaps on a chair in front of a window, introduce her to it? I notice it's a wood door, no see-thru anywhere, so obviously that's not the spot. She likes the warmth coming up off the tiled floor, too, I think. Hmmm. Funny as it is to tell, it's no fun to live with.

What if you raised the blind next to the door halfway? Would that provide the dang animal the sunshine she craves? And, what is she going to do when it starts to really be icky? Are you going to have to fix that issue? I would say 'spoiled cat' but as a cat servant, isn't that redundant?

scruffy, the male sekhmet lookalike who co-owns me doesn't have to beg for a sunny spot. the cozy condo came with THREE window seats on the south side. sometimes he and his un-brother, ghost, curl up together.

other times, they stage wcwf (world cat wrestling federation) bouts. in the middle of the night. on. my. bed. it's a wonder they live to see the dawn.

That's fucking hysterical. Seriously, I think half of a cat's point in life is to make you figure out what exactly they want. They must derive such pleasure from it!

Roxie said...

You live far enough north of the 45th parallel that it should soon be a moot point. Open or closed, there will be no sun on the front door till 7. How late do you want to sleep?

April said...

That's a perfectly reasonable request if you ask me.

Isis, Isis, Ra, Ra, Ra!

Time to worship some SUN!

Bloody Brilliant!

I'm convinced cats think we humans are rather dim as it takes a few attempts by furred ones for us to understand.

The looks of contempt are unbeatable and priceless.Sekhmet is a Queen and she knows this.Julie - you are her people-in-waiting, accept this.

Winter & bad weather are coming in the near future to PigsBird. Maybe it's time to get Sekhmet her own personal sun lamp? (And a timer, perhaps?)

My 16 year old "obnoxious bag of fur" has been doing this to me lately as well. Around 7:30am, he meows in my ear.. twice. Then he stomps on me and lays down on me. Not sure what's up with him. I pet him and go back to sleep.

My female does the same thing every morning as soon as I am up. It is her brothers job to actually wake me up...by stomping up and down my body at the butt-crack of dawn.

Kaessa said...

It's like I've always heard.. Dogs have owners, cats have staff.

We are here for no other reason but to serve them. Or at least that's how it works in their fuzzy little heads.

I have four. I get no rest.

Hahahahahahahahahahahaaha

Because of various goings-on here in the Capital of the Universe this week, I wasn't able to get home before sunset, so that Lord of Everything and My Dinner Bobo could go outside for a moment or two. I made up for it last night at nine pm by opening the backdoor, and he promptly ran outside... so he could lounge on the still-warm concrete porch and watch me read the mail.

I got to sleep late this morning. It's called negotitation...

Thank you so much! I really needed that laugh right now :)

Marilyn said...

Get a "kitty door". Saves so much hassle, wouldn't be without one.
PS. I do not get raccoons and other critters in my kitty door even though I live in the country
