Thank you Catster Diary Person for my DOTD honor. I'm the oldest kitty in the family and this was my very first diary award. I guess I showed those kittens I could keep up with them when it comes to diaries MOL. Thanks also to everyone for your pictures, stars, rosettes, comments, and pawmails.

It's 7:30 am and my alarm clock starts going off. I have a most unusual alarm clock. I never have to set it, it always goes off, it goes quiet temporarily while I go to the bathroom after waking up. However, after I go to the bathroom, I must shut off my alarm clock or it will start going off again even louder than before.
Trying to ignore my alarm clock for a few minutes while I wake up fully, I sleepily open my eyes as something snuggles even deeper into the crook of my right arm, purring loudly, and looks at me with eyes so full of love. It's Lily. How I wish I could capture that loving look on camera! Lily nudges my hand, wantiing scratched. I oblige her. She rolls around as I scratch her, showing me where she wants scratched next. Nearby her Righty and Lefty don't even bother to wake up yet. In varying degrees of wakefulness Buddha, Lucy Liu, Buttons, Uno, Gabriel, Splat Cat, Bratsky, Moo, and Jag are also curled up on the bed with me. Dova comes up and lays right under my chin, demanding me to pet him with my free hand.
My alarm clock continues to go off, ever louder and more persistent. Then my own bladder becomes insistent that I get up and stop lingering.
Sighing, I get up and trudge off to the bathroom. The kittens, Uno, and Bratsky get up and follow me. Splat Cat goes to the window shelf. The rest of the cats remain on the bed, waiting for me to return. When I return to the bedroom, my alarm clock begins to go off again. I pick up Destiny's leash and head halter. Immediately Destiny, who is my self-appointed alarm clock, shuts up. I take Destiny outside to relieve herself.
As soon as I return from taking Destiny back out and sit back down on the bed again, Lily immediately returns to snuggle herself purringly into the crook of my arm. However, I'm fully awake now and I reach for my laptop. Lily knows what this means and she immediately goes and weaves herself inbetween my pillow and the back of my head so part of my head rests on the pillow and part of my head rests on her. I would think it might be uncomfortable for her to have my head resting partly on her side but evidently it isn't because she's done this ever since she was a kitten, almost 15 years now. Enjoying my purring pillow, I start my laptop up and go online to see what's happening on Catster and Dogster.
Who else has a purring pillow like this?

Today I was laying on the bed snuggled up beside Mom, just dozing. I felt something brush against me. Then I felt a little tongue washing the back of my head. It was very pleasant. After that, something snuggled purringly against my side. I felt a little head lay itself across my back. It was Dova and he wasn't pouncing on me or pestering me at all. I found myself enjoying his presence against my side, his head on my back, his loud kitten purr lulling me into deeper sleep. Hey maybe these kittens aren't such little terrors after all. If I, the oldest cat around here, can find pleasure in the company of a kitten, then surely the rest of us adults around here can too.
