Jungle Cat's Adventures

Our alarm kitty went off this morning (at 5:20 AM!)

Saphira's dad again... Think I have mentioned somewhere here that Saphira is usually pretty good about not waking us up at ungodly hours, usually waking when we do. Well, there ARE exceptions! This morning I woke up around 5 AM kind of thirsty, happens to me fairly often. Got up and took a drink, then back to bed. Saphira had not moved from her sleep spot, curled up at my feet. I fell back to sleep, but it was not to last... Woke up around 5:20 to the sound of someone pawing through the bag of kitty toys I keep by the bed, followed by paws pounding across the bedroom floor. Remember she has a lot of toys in here. In addition to a collection of fuzzy mouse toys on our bed, there is a nice cat tree and a kitty tunnel with a kitty cube at each end, and when she tears through the tunnel at warp speed she is NOT quiet! After maybe 20 minutes of this, including several trips across our bed, she seemed to run down and settled back in bed beside me. I reached down and discovered a couple of fuzzy mice beside me that were not there earlier. Suspect she took them down onto the floor, played with them, and then returned them for next time.

Took me quite awhile to fall back to sleep, she does do a good job as an alarm clock! For those who might be wondering, she was NOT scolded or disciplined in any way, given that it happens so infrequently I just let it slide, also thankful that at 3 years she still is as energetic and playful as a kitten. We read so many stories on this and other sites about kitties who due to either age or illness don't have the energy to do much but rest and nap, and our purrs go out to them.

Different subject: Heard from the breeder, and Viola, Saphira's possible new playmate, had her spay surgery Monday, so maybe this weekend we can go down to meet her. Eight paws tearing around will make this place a real zoo!
