Naughty Josie gets her comeuppance

Mum said that we weren't to wake her early for games today as she is tired. When I woke up I went and sat quietly on the window sill and watched the world and my mum was peacefully sleeping.

Then Josie came along. I could see her stop and think. Mum was sleeping on Josie's pillow. Now there had been something about not waking for play but did that apply to waking for sleep? Josie concluded that it didn't so she woke mum up to move her head.

Mum shifted across and Josie curled up in her rightful place and both settled back down again. I saw all of this and what do we do with cats who disobey an instruction about sleeping? Exactly, Whacky Paw!

I bent down and started administering the punishment. Josie did reach up and fight back and this is where it gets funny - Josie got her claws stuck in the curtains so I could batter her about and she couldn't do anythinmg about it - except growl.

I am sorry to say that the growling woke mum up and she detached Josie's claws, not without some difficulty as Josie had managed to weave her paw through the bedstead before getting it hooked and at one point I could see mum looking up at the curtain rail to see if she might have to take the curtains down to release Josie without hurting her but all's well that ends well and Josie is freed.

And now mum was awake she might as well play so the story has a happy ending.

First rule of living with happy humans don't wake them up too early. Second rule for living with happy humans see rule one. I hope Josie is alright after getting caught in the curtains.

First rule of happy cats: wake your human up early so she can make you breakfast. Second rule of happy cats: let human go back to sleep after she served you breakfast at 5 AM.
I hope the curtain is all right.

After years of waking mom up at all hours of the night, I am no longer allowed to sleep in the bedroom. :(

Toby, you missed the purrfect oppurrtunity to prowl about the house with NEIFUR your mum OR Josie watching you! I nefur wake my meowmy early cuz:

1. I get to go places I normally don't when Meowmy is awake.

2. Meowmy gets grumpy! Grumpy Meowmy's are NOT any fun!

The next time you find both Josie AND your mum sleeping peacefully in a deep slumber, leave them be. Tip toe around the flat going forbidden places and touching forbidden objects. It is delightful!
