I've been feeling very lovey-dovey in the mornings. I wake up my mom with sweet kitty kisses on her hand and tuck my head under her hand, trying to get the petting started. I press her face with my paw. Sometimes on her mouth, her nose, her cheek. My new thing is to press right between the eyes with my paw, or even right on top of her eye. I try to lift her arm with my paw (impossible) and continue tucking my head under her hand. I sing her sweet love songs in my perfect pitch meow. For some reason she doesn't like the singing part of this morning ritual. She actually interrupts my concert with muttering. This morning I added a special double paw hair combing with my claws. That woke her up. Mom said it's time to trim my claws (she does that every 2 weeks or so).
When mommy finally gets up, she serves me my yummy wet food and I sing praises to my food. When I finish eating, I clean my face and come back to mommy (who is back in bed) and tuck my head under her hand again. Pet me in the morning.

Sounds wonderful! I like to knead mommy's neck~ it's a good way to wake her up in a hurry for some special time with me!
A cats gotta do what a cats gotta do to get nom noms!
You have the technique down 'pat'...MOL! PAT your Mom for a PET!
Pet me in the morning sounds like some kind of a song...and with your mews and meows, it likely is!
Awwww Toki, you've got a great life. You deserve it too. Your momma is a lucky human.
Yes I agree you Mom is fury lucky to have such a lovey cat that sings to her.
What a nice diary entry!!! I also love waking mommy up for my morning pets hehehe
Purrs and hugz,
I sing in the morning too! Only it's 4:00 AM,& my singing is more a top-of-my-lungs operatic warbling. I think Dad Guy likes it. He always yells my name,really loud,while I'm singing! He wants an encore!
Pets & singing in the morning? I suppose Dad can pet me if he wants,but don't expect any response until after 9:00 AM. I don't play that Morning mess.
Don't get me wrong- If my singing and paw pats don't get results, I fall back on harsher methods- hehe. I bang out percussion on the window blinds by the bed: "chik-chik-chik". And knocking things off shelves and tables is an old favorite.
B.A. used to gnaw on Mom's head until she fed him. Giggles.
Sometimes I like some petting in the morning - I don't always get the response I would like so will try some of your tactics! You are a clever cat. Purrs Henry
