Operation: Cat Scratch Fever has commenced!
The cat has formed a little trick, as most cats do, to get us out of bed and make us do things for her (specifically, letting her outside.) Initially she would just yowl at us at about 7:50, but when that stopped working, she began scratching the bed. She knows she’s absolutely not allowed to scratch anything except the stair carpet, and when she attempts it, we immediately get up and open the stairway door so she can. However, recently she’s started scratching the bed skirt when the door’s been open, so we know she’s just wanting us to move.
Of course, she’s also realized that she can do this even earlier than we wake up, and we’ll let her out to shut her up, so it’s gone from 7:50…7:30….6:45…and Dan finally had enough.
