Tucker: Antique Alarm Clock

Tucker tells me what to do.

"Cats have enormous patience with the limitations of the human mind. They realize...that we have an infuriating inability to understand, let alone follow, even the simplest and most explicit of directions." ~ Cleveland Amory
Dawn came at 5:30 AM this morning with clear skies and beginning light streaming into the window. This would not wake me but a loud "YOWWWWWW!" did. I stumbled into the living room to find a sky filled with reds, pinks, blues and yellows but no clouds. Sitting in the cat tree was Tanya and on the carpet in the center of the room was Tucker. It was he who woke me. He "YOWWWWed" again, "The food bowls are empty, time for breakfast!"

Tucker is one of my charges for the next two weeks; yes, I am a cat "nanny". He is an (shhhh! whisper this) "old man" and bless his heart, he's totally deaf so he can't hear his own meows or how LOUD they are. I guess we really don't have to whisper at all do we? Anyway, I fixed his food and then he touched his nose to my finger, ate his Iams and his treat (it's really his medicine but we won't tell him that) and has taken his place for the day. That would be under the futon bed in the room I use, curled up and sound asleep. Asleep until it's time to eat again.

Now, I can curl up on the sofa, watch the sunrise and get a few more zzzzzz.

PS: Tanya and Tucker will visit Friday's Ark this week as well as the Carnival of the Cats, hosted this week by The Scratching Post. This is their first visit. See you there. (end of post)

When I initially commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each time a comment is added I get 4 emails
with the same comment. Perhaps there is an easy method you are able to
remove me from that service? Thanks!

not more popular because you definitely have the gift.
