Very early this morning, before dawn, my dad got up, took his camera, and went out. He was nice enough to give me a snack before he left. He's very nice when it comes to things like feeding me in the middle of the night or before dawn, if he's up.
But then the sun came up and he was still gone, and my mom was still asleep in bed, and I got hungry again. So I hopped up onto the bed and meowed a little. My mom remained asleep.
I stuck my muzzle into her hand curled on the pillow. She stirred a little and petted me sloppily on my face. OK, this was progress, sort of. I had to escalate things, though, because I was getting hungrier and I didn't know when my dad would come back.
So I stuck my nose into her nose and purred a little. She opened one eye halfway and petted me on my head, then closed her eye. OK, this was some more progress, sort of. I pushed my face into the hollow below her chin, and purred. Surely this would wake her and get her up to get me a snack, I thought. But she only opened her other eye halfway and petted me. Then tried to go back to sleep in spite of me pushing my head into her hand.
So I decided to give her a kiss. I leaned in close and licked her on the lips.
Funny how she's always giving me kisses, but when I give her a kiss it seems to perturb her. She sputtered and put her hand up to her face. "OK, Won, thanks for the kiss," she mumbled, opening her eyes. "OK, I get it, it's time for your snack. I'll get up, I'll get up. Just stop kissing me."
Yay! She was awake now (more or less). She got up and stumbled into the kitchen to get me a snack. It's a good thing, too, because my dad didn't come home for another hour and a half, and I would have been crazy with hunger by then.
Funny how I like it when my mom gives me a kiss, but she really doesn't seem to like it when I give her a kiss. I wonder why that is?
