New Treat

For the last week or so, when my alarm clock goes off in the morning Thompson takes this as the signal for the morning routine to shortly begin (I'm not sure he quite understands the loveliness of the snooze button). He is such a polite and well mannered boy that unlike Theo and Diego-san, he knows I don't like to be woken up before the alarm clock goes off.

Once that alarm goes off however he knows that I'm awake. He'll hop up into bed with me and do his best to get a face rubbing from me. This usually means he'll either lick my hands or my face in encouragement. It's kind of painful for me when Thompson stands on my chest since most of his weight is pressing down on his one front paw but still it's a nice way to be woken up in the morning...

Handy Tip for Thompson: Human shin bones are exquisitely sensitive if you put all your weight on them. It's a balancing act that needs practice, but it's very effective.

My monsters have taken that a step further. I have to barricade my clock radio under a pile of books, because otherwise when they are ready for me to get up they walk on top of it until they step on the on button. Of course, that means no snoozing for me, because I can't reach the snooze button, either.

I prefer to stay in bed until the food dishes are prepared!

Like Daisy, I don't rush out of bed in the morning. I relax until my Mum is ready and heading for the kitchen, then I am up and ready for some food, some pets and to say goodbye to her at the window. Then back to bed : )
