Waking up our mum

At the moment we are loving our radiators. They give off a gentle stream of warm and keep us cats happy. But they don't work all the time, they go cold in the day and over night.

You know when they are about to get warm again as you hear a gentle wumph from the cupboard in the hall. It is pretty quiet and I don't think my mum always hears it so I wake her up to tell her the good news. Then I tell her about my interesting dreams. Then I tell her anything I forget to tell her the night before. Then I wonder if it might not be time for breakfast.

Sometimes she pretends to still be asleep but a meow directly in the ear or a carefully used paw soon stops that.

Mum reckons the warm is coming on earlier while we have this cold snap so that's quite a lot of chatting each morning. So much so last night she said she would have an early night to catch up on her sleep and I promised not to wake her early.

So we were all quiet, I was asleep by mum's legs, Josie was cuddled up with mum under the duvet and it was peaceful and still when there was a loud cry from outside. It went on a few times and all our hearts were racing. Josie hid and mum went to the window.

It was a bad fox calling out for its friends when all sensible animals were trying to sleep. My mum banged on the window and it ran away. But she had been worried that some poor creature was in trouble and she took a long time to get back to sleep so I think we're all going to have an early night again tonight. Luckily us cats like early nights.

Luckily you cats are indoor kitties!! Imagine having to be out there all the time with the cold and bad cats and OMG FOXES!
Wouldn´t it be wise to make your peace with that collar so you can get in in an emergency, hm? Think about it.

I hope no other good creatures were hurt by that fox and this is a good reason why you should be inside at night mate. How do you get your mum to go to bed early? I like early nights too and I'm lucky if mum goes to bed before 11pm and that's way past my bed time.
