Oh PM, please get up earlier so I can blog!!!!!!

This is so unfair! Normally the PM gets up around 5:00-5:30 so she can help me blog but since she has been sick she's been sleeping in until 6:30 when the wee ones get up. I miss the quiet time, just her, a coffee and me. Once those wee ones get up, it's game over for me. I try to get her on the computer after the wee ones go to bed but to tell the truth she is pretty useless by then. The Music Man is normally on it anyway with his music stuff and Facebook. I have a meme to do, friends to visit, stories to tell, awards to brag about!

I need some fool proof ways to get her up. Anyone have a rooster who needs a good home?


Isis said...

No rooster here, but I do have a brother who's excellent at waking people up at 5am! This morning he poked Mummy until she fussed him at that time, while poking Dad's back and eventually attempting kitty acupuncture on it too! ;) I think he was just asking for more room in the bed, but it worked and he does it most days... If you are interested in hiring him, I shall ask Ramses what his hourly rate is! ;)

I know just how you feel.Mom wanted to take a longer break yet I said no way.When we were on break she'd sleep

Oh no! We hope your mom feels better soon. Sending healing purrs her way. We wake up our dad for breakfast, by sitting on his shoulder and tapping him gently on the face, and then breathing in his face. It usually works. When dad isn't home, we wake up mom. If they don't respond to the face tapping, we start whining, and that usually gets them up!

Um, Gandalf has great success every day. He walks on Mom and lays on her houlder and purrs in her face. If this isn't immediately successful, he brings out the big guns... he walks on her face.

Rarely is the next step necessary, so exercize extreme caution: he will put a bitey on her nose. This method will wake her up, but it will usually not provide the intended results.

I'd be happy to help you out Goldie, I have some patented methods! Try:

licking the eyebrow/eyelid
standing on the PM's bladder (or boobs)
sticking your nose in her mouth
pushing your paw up her nose
and if all else fails - biting the nose (but that usually gets me yelled at, so use with care).

If none of that works, I'll come over and help! But we hope your PM gets well soon and none of this is needed :-)


Spooky said...

Oh, how sad! You look neglected. I think Jake made some good suggestions. Try those and see if she'll get up any earlier. Meanwhile, we'll wish for her to feel better very soon!

Think we should have a party at my place?

Angel Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

When Meowm isn't getting out of bed.....I get my face real close to hers so that my whiskers tickle, or go inside her nose.....that gets her everytime!

Lux said...

You're looking pretty desperate there! I sure hope your mom feels better soon.

No roosters here. I wish there were!

Daisy said...

Poor Goldie, you look heartbroken!

The Furry Kids said...

Thundering herd of elephants usually works. Or playing jingle ball at 4:30 am. If she tries to lock you out of the room, then scream and fling yourself at the door over and over and over. It works like a charm at our house.


Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

Poor Goldie, you look really desperate. Yep the nose biting works furr us. Hope your mum's soon feeling better.

Poppy Q said...

Haaaaaaaa that was funny. I doesn't have any roosters either.

I hope your mommy feels better soon, then she will get back to her routine. Lighter mornings will help too!!

Have a lovely weekend.

Hi Goldie and Shade,

What lucky kitties you are to have been selected Poppy Q's "Friend Friday!" Congradulations. It's a really big honor!


Goldie, we love that picture of you!

The Big Thing tells us roosterz sleep later than 5 am (excep Summer). Try walkin on the Beins. An I haf good luck waking up The Big Thing by pushin my whiskers in his nose...


Irishcoda said...

Aw, I hope your MOm is feeling better, it's miserable to be miss the special time in the early morning but it's even more miserable to be sick! Adorable picture, I love it!

Halloween said...

Hi Goldie and Shade! Goldie, did you catch that fly? I have been wondering about it for several days. It is important to catch flies when you spot them! They are fast but the paw of death is faster! Shade, I do not know how any self respecting cat can sit in a sink. This greatly disturbs me. The sound of running water is a sign to run for the farthest to reach corner under the bed. Are you part woofie???

Purrs (and still sending purrs about Baby Kitty - so sad),

Mickey's Musings said...

Gee Goldie, I hope your Mom feels better soon!! Maybe the Vesey seeds will make her feel better!!
Mom likes looking at the catalogues too :) Now if the place looks anything like the pictures! Mom might want that bulldozer!Hahahahaha!!!!!!!
Purrs Mickey

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

That is the cutest picture! I hope your mom got up to give you a little blog time.
Thanks for the info on the cat mint. We'll see if we can find it anywhere.
Happy Weekend!

Ana said...

Isn't 5:00 a bit early to get up? Your Mommy is very strong! Pumuckl likes to wake us up by tickling and chewing our toes or by destroying the bedroom. Hope your Mom feels better soon.

Boy said...

Here's how I get mine Mummy up. Jump onto her and aim your paws on the middle of her thwoat. Or, wick wight into her nostwil. Warning: it may taste a bit funny.
Or, meow wight into her ears.
And the final one if all else fails, give the the biteys on her toesies!

I can wend you That Thing too. I've taught him a good many ways of waking mine Mummy too.

Cecil the Cougar: said...

I am sorry to hear that your Mommie is not feeling well, but she should not be neglecting you! I do not have a rooster, but I meow a lot at a really high pitch. Maybe I can visit and come meow in her ear! That is how I get Mommie and Daddie up... it is also how I get kicked out of the bedroom....

Miss Kitty, NFC said...

Hello Goldie and Shade....!

You have been busy waiting, or sitting in the sinks....I hope you get to go back on the computer very soon. It's aggravating when they won't help us with our computer fun isn't it?

Miss Kitty

Christine and FAZ said...

I find sitting on their head whilst they are trying to sleep usually works. FAZ

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

Hope your mom is better soon. Sending purrs her way. My cousin Charlotte has dozens of ways to wake humans up but if your mom is sick, you shouldn't try it. Anyway, you have so many sugestions already. I would dare try any since I am dead scared of becoming a stray kitty again.

You look so cute in that photo.
