Meow Monday Wake up…Floof Edition

Fluffy cat tail

There's some serious floof on my side.

This morning, I used one of my most effective tools to get the staff up and at ‘em: my fluffy wuffy tail.

First I sat next to female staff’s head and put tail in her face. She “pffted” and moved my tail.

I flicked it back to where it was.

Then, she moved my tail and tucked it under her head (nice try, staff).

I flicked it back to where it was.

Then, she moved her face out of the tail area.

I stood up, moved a few inches, sat back down and fanned the tail across her entire face.

She gave up and hauled herself out of bed muttering something like, “FINE. You win.”

Whatevs. It was 5:45, yo. Time for BREAKFAST.

Fantastic technique Romeo! I wish my cat Catcher would learn from you. Instead, she likes to place her head as far as she can get it under my arm…and pushes…and I mean pushes hard. I call it the “headbutt wake-up call”, and the only snooze button I can find is popping the can open on her cat food.
