Gah! Cat!

Sometimes you wake up from a nap and a cat is right there, being all, like, “hey, what’s up.” And it is disconcerting. So naturally you take a picture.

There’s a theory that the classic Space Alien face shape is from having kittens staring at you up close when you’ve just woken up, especially if you still have a bit of sleep paralysis.

I have two cats. This does happen sometimes but I guarantee I have never taken a picture. I usually just pet them. Sometimes I shoo them away depending on how badly I need to pee.

It could be worse. My daughter’s (fortunately) small dog panicked completely when she was trying to do the core bit of her workout at home and hurled himself on to her, presumably to try and resuscitate her. She too has pictures…

There is a saying that pets often look like their human owners.

I think this one looks like you were looking at a mirror. We should all be so lucky.

My dearly departed Mary used to wake me by lightly placing her paw on my closed eyeball. She somehow discovered that this would bring about instant wakefulness and that the adrenaline burst would mean I couldn’t go back to sleep so I might as well feed her.

When my Zoey does this, she’s usually telling me that I need to rest and take care of myself. On Sunday, she planted herself, so I closed my eyes “just for minute” to enjoy the snuggles. Next thing I knew, it was 4 hours later. (I think she was right about my needing the nap.)
